Cleaner Performance

Treehugger | Performance Bicycle Rides With the Wind

Bicycle catalog specialist Performance Bicycle of Chapel Hill is making an effort to use renewable power at all its locations. They’ve partnered with Renewable Choice to purchase clean fuel credits equivalent to more than 5,000,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity, which reportedly equates to more than 7,000,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emission reduction.

Best wishes to Sheldon Brown

Bicycle Design | Captain Bike

James at Bicycle Design points out that Sheldon Brown, one of the most helpful and knowledgeable bike experts on the internet, is suffering from neurological problems that have pushed him from two wheels to three.

Brown is keeping a health journal on his condition, and the current diagnosis is maybe Multiple Sclerosis. If you’ve considered riding or sponsoring a rider in an MS 150 ride this year, maybe this will provide a little extra motivation.

If you’ve never experienced Brown’s bike pages, here’s a good place to start. Here’s his Bicycle Glossary, here are repair tips, and here’s his fixie page.

Travel with Bicycles

When we were planning our trip to Spain, I found the Travel with Bicycles (Air/Rail/Other) site that provides a wealth of data on traveling with your bike.

Interestingly, when we were in the airport, we saw cyclists that just handed the airline their bikes with not packing at all.

Another Hugger

We’re proud to announce the birth of our newest baby Snow Hugger. Manned by me, Snow Hugger is Bike Hugger’s colder, more mountainous cousin: a blog for ski and snowboard enthusiasts.

I’ll be enlisting some of my fellow aficionados to help me post from ski shows, demo equipment, and try out the slopes. We’re going to share our tips, hacks, and experiences, and if you’re a skiing, snowboarder, or other snow enthusiast, we want to hear yours.

Oh, and Byron has promised to own the snow tube beat.
