RAGBRAI

Note that when Andy told us about building a RAGBRAI bus for Lance, we thought that was so cool we invited him to post about it. He’ll also post later about Paris-Brest-Paris.

I’m driving down I-35 tomorrow to meet up with RAGBRAI and ride a couple days. I first went on this ride 29 years ago and it is what got me into riding. It wasn’t about bike culture, it was just riding. There was bike culture back then - I saw guys in the showers shaving their legs, and noticed guys on one speeds (I figured out later they were track bikes). I was only 12 years old, so for me, culture came later.

Now I’m “in the industry” and I haven’t been back to RAGBRAI for years. I’m excited to go back, and this year I have a bigger connection. Here at work we’ve been kitting out a Livestrong bus for the LAF to take on the ride. 887632115_11fa1622fc_m.jpg

LAF Bus at Ragbrai

Continuing with our bus theme today, just heard that Lance will have an LAF bus at RAGBRAI this year and it’s being customized by Hed Cycling – watch for pictures and more posts.

(note, I didn’t set out to have a bus day at bike hugger, but sometimes topics just fall into place …)

Hello Sharrow

The City of Seattle is begining to implement the Bicycle Master Plan, including “sharrows” (shared arrows) and the West Seattle Blog posted a photo and report. Check Andrew’s post from last year on sharrows, and sharrows in Pittsburgh, San Francicso, controversy in Toronto, and a pro-sharrow video on YouTube … .

Vino the Vampire?

Where I was calling Vino a MOFO and Badass!, the news flash today may mean he’s a vampire blood doper.

Coverage

Our sister publication, TDFBlog, will cover this in full, and we’ll get back to the bike huggin’.

Craft Bike Boom

In a USAToday article, Richard Sachs credits blogs and customers with disposable income for a craft bike boom. That’s also the longtail at work, where an industry pumps out carbon bikes to the masses and Independent Bike Dealer making unique custom bikes are flourishing.

Are you seeing your local IBD flourish?
