Old School Folding Bike

After seeing this 70s folding bike with integrated rack, taking some photos, and chatting with the owner, I googled italian folding bike and found several versions of the same bike with different names. There’s the Cinzia, Hyda Bike, Barbarellas, Safari, and sometimes Bianchi. Fascinating. Anyone know the history of these bikes?

Backpedaling Bad for Seattle

Alan Durning, executive director of Sightline Institute, and Chuck Ayers, executive director of the Cascade Bicycle Club wrote an editorial this week on Stone Way, which is the cause célèbre for Seattle cyclists.

“The fate of Stone Way is particularly important to the future of green, healthy transportation in Seattle. The Seattle Bicycle Master Plan, which calls for an extensive network of new bicycle lanes, originally flagged Stone Way as a key link, connecting the increasing residential and commercial density of North Seattle to the region’s most popular bicycle route: the Burke-Gilman Trail.”

Predictable comments in the Soundoff, reminded me of this YouTube video about funding bicycle projects.

Does Stone Way matter to you? Is it your cause célèbre?



A Warp Speed, Lap-of-Destruction Crit

For a while there I was enjoying the end of the season, but looking at the start list for the Interbike Industry Cup race, I’m getting increasingly nervous.

Team Bike Hugger will race it along with ex-pros, and “ringers.” Formulating our strategy now, it’s mostly to “not get dropped.” And if you do get dropped, try to make it a legendary drop … like by at least trying to hang onto Ned Overend’s wheel. And definitely not by some old-timer, traditional magazine!
