Tour de Georgia blogging

Frank Steele, a Bike Hugger cofounder, contributor, and collaborator, is blogging the Tour de Georgia and posting on such things as Santa riding up Brasstown Bald.



Ride of Silence

During National Bike Month, the Ride of Silence will occur. Organized in “honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling on public roadways,” the rides will take part across the US and World on May 16th at 7:00 pm. Check the locations for a ride near you.



Blue Sky Beijing

The blue sky in the background of this photo was a rare site in Beijing. We were lucky to see it and the next day the pollution returned to normal oppressive levels. What I mistakenly thought was morning fog for a few moments, when I first arrived, was instead a gray smog that envelopes the city usually every day.

It’s tough not to be cynical on Earth Day after seeing that level of pollution and reading that Beijing is on track to become the top carbon emitter. While Oprah teaches her audience how to be green, eco-socialites throw parties, and Cheryl Crow urges us to spare a square, the “latest data shows China is building a coal-fired power plant every four days.” The IOC’s confidence in China’s ability to clean up the air for the Olympics is laughable. I was having problems just riding a folding bike around and expect that Olympic performance scientists will focus on breakthrough exercise-induced asthma drugs in Beijing.

Of course, Bike Hugger will do our part to promote cycling and bike culture (May is National Bike Month), but with a new realization and appreciation of how perilous global warming is. China has promised to focus on pollution and the poor. We can only hope that’s true.



Olympic progress report video

In this video clip, Bryan and I observe the Olympic progress. You can also see that we’re having a good time. Learn more about Beijing, the Olympics, and how they’re going to get that done in my post on Textura Design.
