The Hip and the Dead

Just 2 years ago, fixies and messengers were hip and now sadly described as a dying breed; well, I don’t trust media predications anymore than anyone else and messengers will always have a place in Portland and in bad-ass races like this one in NYC.


As noted in the comments below, after posting this entry, I was tipped to the Tour of Chicago death and read the news about it.

What was intended as a snappy post title now means more and our regrets and sympathies go out the Chicago cycling community. The video itself is legendary, anyone riding like that I think is “bad ass,” but I wish the timing had been different and feel very sad about what happened.

Maui Winter Break Video

In our 31st Huggacast, we ride Upcountry in Maui, down an 8 mile descent, a bike path, lava fields, and meet a fixed rider on Honolulu

Bike to Work Pants

If you need bike pants and want to impress your bike geek friends with some tech that ain’t lycra or soft shell, check Lindland Cordaround.

Lincoln Park Trials

trials_thumb-3.jpg I was down at the beach walk at Lincoln Park this lovely weekend when I ran into not one but 3 separate folks on trials bikes, perfecting their skills in the area.

The photo’s of KC who hails from Denver. He rode trials back in CO for quite a while, but hasn’t been so active since coming out to the Pacific North West. No better excuse than a sunny Saturday to take your seatless wonder down to the beach and practice side hopping on some old beach logs.

Apparently Seattle’s not a hot bed of trialing activity, but our neighbors to the north in Vancouver seem to have it going on. Mike Bentham ‘s great video featured a while ago is just one example.

More details about KC’s ride, riding and trials inside…
