Bike with Wii

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.



Recording the Tour of California

Has anyone actually recorded and watched the Tour of California? OLN/Versus/Golf the Rodeo Channel or whatever they call themselves has the most maddening schedule, or lack thereof. I don’t understand how you can operate a channel with a fluid schedule and I dislike rodeo even more, when I expect to see Levi riding a breakaway into the ground and instead see a cowboy falling of a cow!

I’ve set and reset the dvr repeatedly and it never records and the TOC isn’t there. I found the time trail last night by chance. Maybe their channel codes are messed up or something.



Bike Bouncer

bike bouncerHaving garaged a bike, and everyone I know has done the same thing, the Bike Bouncer is interesting and could possibly save you a replacement frame. (That is if you remember to hook it onto your garage!)

Update

And from the bizarro world, is the bouncer bike, which is . .. well, just have a look for yourself.

For our readers across the pond, iceBike, a cycling trade event, is next week. My favorite in the seminar choices? “Make your own tyre.”



Never a better time to ride to work

With the WA DOT announcing two lanes of I5 this summer, I’m sure we’ll see record numbers of cyclists riding to work. From the necessity, hopefully more of them we’ll keep on riding.

Will your ride to work more this summer?
