Seattle September Critical Mass ride report

I rode Seattle Critical Mass on Friday, great time and and a nice ride as always. The weather was lovely for a ride, could be the last rain-free mass of the year. We ended up cruising from downtown through Ballard, up Stone way past Greenlake and down University ave. I had to peel off a bit early, would love to hear where the ride ended up.

I was a bit surprised at the amount of antagonism between drivers and riders, it seemed quite a bit more than I’ve seen earlier this year. One comes to expect a certain amount of frustrated car drivers, but it really seemed like the level of animosity was on the rise.

I managed to snap a few photos along the way, here’s my set from the Bike Hugger Photostream



Racing in Vegas

We’ll tell legendary stories for the next 20 years about the Industry Cup race with Team Bike Hugger, the Hugga Hookup, and Cipollini. Read Andrew’s race report, Velonews, and see more photos in our photostream.

Meeting Gary Fisher by chance

“Ah, nothing’s to chance,” Gary Fisher said and we talked briefly about the Simple City, the bike revolution, politics, his travels, and more. We met at the Vegas Airport. He just finished his meal and we were getting ours.

I hope we can talk more with Gary. We had a lot in common and I think more than just chance.



Thanks for the Hookup

That was a great hookup with Andrew placing second in the media division at the Industry Cup. And, to the roar of the crowd, racing with Cipollini. We couldn’t get connected live, but have photos, videos, and posts to follow …

In a crit, racing next to Cipo, in Vegas

Team Bike Hugger in the Industry Crit raced with Cipo and others. Reports to follow and photos from the Hugga Hookup.

Hugger in the race

[UPDATE from Andrew - CRAZY race. Crashes everywhere including Cipo going down on the bell lap by rolling his tubular and taking 5 guys with him. I snuck around the carnage and finished…top 15? 120+ starters - great race, and great exposure for BikeHugger I’m sure because I was GLUED to Mario’s wheel most of the race. Check the Hugger Photostream for more.]
