Mobile Social Bike Parking and Rental

Our friends and Clever Cycles and Recyclery have offered to help us with bike parking at the end of the ride during the Mobile Social. They’re right across the street from Lucky Lab Hawthorne where the reception will take place.

We’ll just ride on over, drop our bikes off, and not worry about bike thieves.

If you need a bike, Clever Cycles has a good assortment of Bromptons and more to ride. Contact them and ask for Martina. Waterfront Bikes is also renting and just mention us for a hookup.

Bike to Work Day

So we’re all busy with our day jobs, working on the Mobile Social, totally distracted by Bettie 2.0 (lots of new gear) and Bike to Work day shows up on the calendar!

I’m out riding that day in a hugga kit saying hello, and we gave a bunch of hugga socks to Cascade for their stations.

You all riding to work as well?

More Mobile Social

A reader wrote to say

The Mobile Social. What the heck is that? It sounds like so many wonderful things. I’m interested in the intersection of bike culture and mobile technology.

Well that’s exactly what it is! The Mobile Social is the intersection of bikes, technology, and culture. We ride bikes, we’re mobile, use technology, socialize, and into gear. So we combined all that into an event and called it the Mobile Social. We think it’s wonderful and the first one was a success. Our next one is a week from today in Portland. And here’s what you need to know

  • Register on Upcoming – limited to 50.
  • Ride with us or just come to the reception
  • Need a bike? We’ve got rentals lined up from Waterfront Bikes – just ask for the Bike Hugger deal

Comment if you’ve got questions and we’ll see you all there. I posted on all the schwag and just added to the list is a free SXSW 09 Interactive pass.

Bar Rotation

About this time of year, I get really burned out on my current stock of energy bars. Taste change and so I don’t have a “best bar,” but try to rotate them in and out and mix it up with pastries, bagels, and a good old PB&J. I travel with the PRO Bar and Bear Valley Pemmican Bar. Those are considered meal replacements. A jersey-pocket standby is Clif and their shot chewy things are good for a nervous stomach right before a big race.

For the bike, they’d need more substance for more calories. And, I wish that Natures Path would form their toaster pastries into bar shapes for my jersey.

What’s your bar of choice?
