Austin Bike Culture Video

Our 32nd Huggacast features Austin bike culture. We rode with the locals in Austin, attended SXSW 08, threw a massive BBQ, ate some really good tacos, and saw a bike posse. Also noted is that I was stuck in Memphis, but was feeling Minnesota. Read our Urban Ride and BBQ page for more details about the event.

Our next mobile social event is in Shanghai.

Blogging Shanghai by Bike

Bike Hugger is visiting Shanghai for the Intel Developer Forum. We’ll ride, meetup, and blog the mobile social. The plan is to meet at the Shanghai International Convention Center to start with routes, stops, and locations TBD.

Hyland by Civia

IMG_3326.jpg My shop has one of the new Hyland Civia bikes sitting in the window, and I have to say that it is one clever commuter.

Seattle Train Yard Bike Tour: Sundays in March

A friend just forwarded on Bicycle Tour of Seattle Train Yards, happening on the remaining Sundays this Month.

Details: Departs at Noon from the All City Coffee House in George Town Ride: 3 hrs/ 10 miles, lumpy pavement (bring a patch kit and a pump), stopping at 3 rail yards. Ends in Ballard. To do: Check the site the day before to ensure no cancellations.

I gotta admit, I love riding through the train yards. I’m really looking forward to getting a few details on what’s actually happening in them. I don’t know much about the outfit, but I think these guys do the Secret Seattle tours which are well regarded.

Tall bike at Austin during SxSW

tallbike.jpg I saw this guy the last day I was in Austin. This guy declined an “interview”, tossing a sorry-on-my-way-to-work our way as he searched his bag while negotiating traffic.

It seems tall bikes are not at all limited to the West Coast. Personally, that ain’t my bag, baby, but my head didn’t spin till just now when I looked at the photo trying to figure out how he stops the bike. He’s got bare brake bosses and no levers, so unless he welded that multi-speed freewheel to fix the wheel, I am totally baffled. Because that would seem like a really bad idea to be without some way to slow or stop.
