So Fritz over at Cyclelicious found the Veltop, at right, and wonders whether his readers would ride with something like this.

For me, it seems like a solution in search of a problem. Here in Georgia, the combination of heat radiating off the black fabric and the windows blocking the cooling airflow means it wouldn’t be much help against the sun in the summmer.

Maybe if you’re fighting cold and rain together, it would work better, but it looks like it would produce a lot of extra drag, as well.



I survived Bike Expo 2007

Still recovering from two days of bikes, bikes and more bikes. Great event, wonderful exhibitors, fabulous speakers. Stay tuned for a more detailed synopsis in the next day or so. For now, I’m off to dig through lots of great schwag over a glass of wine.

Seeing a photo of Jill riding in the rain reminded me of our tour a few years back.



Seattle Bicycle Touring Club

SBTC wrote to say hello and cool. They’re an informal group of recreational cyclists promoting rides and fun for its members. There’s a lot going on in their clubhouse, including maps and a gallery.
