If you want to make a difference on bicycle transportation issues in the state of Georgia, a big chance comes up next weekend.
It’s the second “Georgia Rides to the Capitol” event, with the mayors of three suburban cities (Decatur, Marietta, and Roswell) joining Atlanta mayor Shirley Franklin on rides to the state capitol in Atlanta. Distances range from 5 miles (Decatur) to 21 miles (Roswell) one-way.
The rides are timed to arrive at the Capitol around 11:40 a.m. on Tuesday, March 6. Police will escort the rides inbound but not outbound.
In honor of the Oscars, WashCycle offers a Top 10 Bike Movies list. We all know what’s at the top of the list, but this list offers some good variety, and a couple of films I’ve never seen. And I’m a sucker for the line “Still includes best method for proving one is in Texas.”

From Bike Biz, I learned about the Fisher-Price Smart Cycle and the gadget blogs also noticed – rolling out a product with Richard Simmons is an invitation to snark. Not only have I thought, “hey my trainer could charge my cell phone battery or something when I’m doing intervals” I also thought it’d be cool if the chitlins could ride along with me. Now, junior needs some little bike shorts, legs are already smooth, and I’m guessing the Fisher-Price program is way more fun than anything Tacx or other VR trainers.
I’m hoping that Wii offers a bike attachment somehow for the older kids and they can at least pretend their riding around by like sitting on the coach and moving their legs up and down or something.
While you could set up an obstacle course in your garage for the kids to run their bikes into, or even just ride with them on a bike path, anything that address the fatness of the US, Bike Bugger hugs.
