Bike Culture Blogged
Bike Hugger is bike culture blogged. As a group blog, with different voices, we cover diverse topics, but the bike centers us. You won’t find a marketing box to put us in or a label to slap onto what we do. We’re like Boing Boing and the bike is the context. We try to do interesting, epic stuff.
We also believe the bike is a connector with web designers, developers, and creative professionals. That’s why you’ll find us at events like SXSW, WebVisions, and NXNE. Also why, at times, we talk about the web on this blog
In the Industry
Bike Hugger is working with several partners in the industry on various projects, including design studies like Bettie, new bike products, and concepts. We’ll announce those as they become available and disclose our relationships to our partners when we blog about them.
We spend a lot of time in shops, and Mark V works at one. We believe our success is directly tied to local bike shops
We started our Hugga Comfort line a few years ago with shirts, socks, and jerseys. We now sell more products, like shirts, select products from our partners, and our Kickstand on Amazon.com.

Built is our newest gig.
Live from the Lab
Along with the Mobile Socials and Built, Bike Hugger is a social media lab for Textura Design. We’re having a pretty good time building a community, but also learning what works, doesn’t, and being practical. Byron just talked to Outside Online Magazine about it.
Advertise with Bike Hugger
What we’re working on is meaningful interactions on the web v. pageview and hits. You likely noticed we’re not overran with ads; especially banner ads. We flow the products we’re making, testing, and reviewing into our infostream
While not a focus, we do offer advertisers a more traditional approach with ads and you can advertise directly with Google Adwords.
Love the Hugga
We’d love to hear from you about how you cycle, where and what you ride, and your commute.
