Representin’ at Interbike

Bike Hugger will “represent” at Interbike this year blogging the booths, exhibits, culture, and most everything else. Interbike is North America’s largest bicycle trade event and show and we’re excited to meet bike industry people we’ve only corresponded with in email, including the long list of manufacturer’s parts going into Bettie, our project bike.

That list includes Cleverchimp, Xtracycle, Phil Wood, Sun Rims, Magura, and much more.

We’re also planning on hanging with our friends at REI and Davidson Bicycles and finding all the commuter gear we can. Related Interbike blogs include

Seattle Bicycling Plans on NPR

On the eve of a public meeting about the Seattle Bicycle Master Plan, KUOW’s Weekday is discussing cycling in Seattle.

To us, it’s all in the details, and less a master grand plan. Add more bike lanes, bike racks, and signs and that’ll make an enormous difference. I posted on this topic previously and the Seattle Weekly article criticizing the city. The city deserves the criticism. We do have great paths, but terrible on-street routes.

Yesterday, outside of the new Alley 24, we stopped for coffee and there are no bike racks. Across the street is REI, lots of bikes rolling out of that building, and here we were putting our bikes against a tree. The master plan should also have developers promoting cycling.

Another example is Alaskan Way, where thousands of cyclist ride the paths. When the cruise ships are in port, it’s a mess of traffic, cars in bike lanes, taxis, and not a friendly place to ride.

MS 150 Bike Tour

The Seattle PI reports on how cycling is helping MS patients fight fatigue and the related Group Health MS 150 tour on September 9 and 10th. The bike tour is a, “unforgettable, two-day journey through Skagit, Whatcom and Island counties.”

The article profiles Kathy McFadden, an MS patient and participant in the MS 150, who said, “I simply don’t think I would be feeling this good without riding.”

Cycling the Caspian Sea

A young Iranian cyclist will pedal 5,200 kilometers around the Caspian Sea to raise environmental issues and is expected to take 40 days.

Building Bettie, a sport-utility bike

Our sport-utility project bike, named Bettie, is being built. You can see Pam making a DIY cushion for Xtracycle’s SnapDeck, the boxes for the FreeRadical, and Stokemonkey.

Bettie, is a Bike Hugger project to build a sport-utility bike. Learn more by browsing the project tag tag. What’s a sport utility bike? It’s a bike that fits the cycling lifestyle. Use it to haul, commute, for fun, and to meet your transportation needs.
