That’s it I’m moving to Idaho

A person operating a bicycle or human-powered vehicle approaching a steady red traffic control light shall stop before entering the inter-section, and shall yield to all other traffic. Once the person has yielded, he may proceed through the steady red light with caution. Provided however, that a person after slowing to a reasonable speed and yielding the right-of-way if required may cautiously make a right-hand turn.”

This is brilliant. There are plenty of bike folk who behave as though this is the law in Seattle (I noted a couple of blatant red-light-runners on my way in this morning). As much as I hate stopping and waiting, it’s the law where I live. In Idaho they have it figured out: Treat all red-lights as YieldsĀ¯. No complete stop necessary, no waiting. Sure, if there’s traffic you wait, but how much quicker would your commute be if you never had to wait at an empty red light. Time to write my congressman. At 180lb some seriously wasted momentum!

The Modal Bicycle Concept Explained

The concept of the modal travel bike is to have a bike that is thoughtfully designed and equipped so that it could be run as a regular road bike or quickly converted into a single-speed road bike with minimal fuss and fit into an airline-friendly case for travel.

So I’ve just got one week left to get everything together for my big trip to Japan. My travel bike is fully decked out for touring now….except for the gearing.

Love the Hugga

This came in from our contact form

Yesterday I met some wonderful individuals who really made my day. I was out for a bike ride with my girlfriend and I ended up popping a tire at the north end of Mercer Island. I was about to call my husband to pick me up when members of the Bike Hugger team kindly stopped and helped me out. Not only did they patch and pump my tire for me, they took the time to teach me how to do it in case it happens again in the future. It was so nice of them to stop their ride to help me out! THANK YOU!

It was our pleasure.
