Schooner Exact Anniversary Party

Tonight is the Schooner Exact Anniversary Party at The Beveridge Place, 7:00 PM.

Schooner Exact is “a local, small batch microbrewery focused on quality, handcrafted ales,” and last year brewed up Bike Hugger Brown for us. Good stuff.

Other blogs have noticed and Bike Hugger will be there



Bike Chute Aeronaut

From the what’s old is new department, I bet when the Parasailers were first marketing their thrill rides to tourists, it was all the newest thing.

Ah, but back in the day of safety bikes, Mr. Kabrich was the Bike Chute Aeronaut. I wonder if he chatted up the ladies with talk about “the draft” and “being aero.”

Bikes on Buses: getting left behind

Seattle’s had it’s fare share of problems with bike on buses lately, but this article makes it clear it’s not all Metro’s fault. Apparently almost 900 people a year forget their bikes in bus racks. Kent Peterson to the rescue – if you left yours on, he (or some other nice person) can help you get it back at Bikestation. Frankly, it’s not clear to me what gets left behind more often, the bike or the rider.

I can easily imagine how this might happen, especially at a busy bus stop when talking with a friend. The driver drives off and there’s not much more you can do. Of course, the article mentions other reasons as well (hempfest being the chief culprit, although I’m sure all sorts of things get left on the bus during that day).

I’m sure this would be way less of a shock than getting off the bus and your bike not being on the rack anymore. This is apparently fairly common in downtown according to the drivers I get a chance to speak with. All the more reason to stand at the front of the coach and keep your eye on your bike.

Any huggers had to to retrieve a bike from Kent?

Bike Potter

An AP wire photo with the caption: “Bangladeshi potter takes his wares to a local market for sale on a cold and foggy morning in Rohonpur, 230 kilometers (145 miles), north of Dhaka, Bangladesh.”

From AP Photo by Pavel Rahman and submitted by Jerome, BikeWintering west of Chicago, who spotted the photo using FlickrFan.
