Bike Polo in Seattle, and the Times

bruisedbybike.jpgLooks like Bike Polo’s hitting the mainstream in little old Seattle, heralded by article in the Seattle Times. But it’s not just here; it’s been in the Times (in New York) earlier this year.

Bike polo’s fascinating in it’s diversity. Ranging from the very formal and internationalized version played in the US and farther a field to urban park polo played in major cities all over the US. Here’s a mallet-cam view of a game in NYC.

My favorite are the mini bike events – like the Bruised By Bike event detailed on Alex Wetmore’s blog earlier this year. These folks are totally nuts in the best possible way. I hope I get a chance to attend next year’s bike rollo.



Take your Tallbike to Rwanda

Tallbike_Race.jpg Dude from Minneapolis builds a tallbike. A collapsing tallbike. He boxes it up, and takes it to Rwanda. While there he hooks up with Tom Ritchey, races his extremely tall singlespeed in the wooden bike classic, and helps the Rwandan coffee farmers get better prices for their coffee by distributing longtail bikes and microloans.



Meanwhile in Bermuda

While we were bringing the jerseys to market, putting the Hugga Hookup together, and just starting to think about getting the rain bikes ready for Fall, the women of Team Bike Hugge we’re racing the Bermuda Grand Prix.

Being Dutch with Bikes

The Dutch government is taking firm measures to discourage cars. Sundays are no car days, SUVs are taxed, and the more you pollute the more you pay. Read on and rejoice. And check the 3-level bike parking structure in this Amsterdam documentary

During Interbike we’ll look for the Dutchness and blog it up. New models are coming to the US from Batavus, including the Lightning.



The Hugga Hookup

We’re expanding our Interbike presence and coverage this year with the Hugga Hookup, during the Criterum Championship. At the hookup we’ll have products, industry, racing coverage, blogging, and podcasting. The hookup is about creating community during Interbike, talking about what we do, hanging out, and watching the bike race.

So far, we’re hooking up with

Swobo, Reynolds, and more of our friends have said they’re coming. The best part is that you’re all invited.
