BBQ @ SXSW Update

We’re gathering schwag for the BBQ, getting everything ready, and planning product giveways. New sponsors include Crumpler USA, Reynolds Cycling, REI Austin, and Sock Guy.

Considering the road ride, we may just race the Tunis-Roubaix X, ride the Spokes ‘n Spurs, or the Jesuit Ranger Roundup and focus on the Urban Ride.

We’ll update the rides and BBQ details, including the giveaways, here and on the BBQ page.

That Naked Bike

Reports are the Naked Bike is en route to a new bike shop in Austin. I’ve looked and couldn’t find anything about Naked online … the bike is also in this Huggacast video.

Monday Night Spinervals with Matthew McConaughey

Hearing that Lance was planning to open a bike shop in Austin, I was all, “nice.” I imagined Monday night spinervals with Matthew McConaughey could happen there and it’s pretty much guaranteed that the Lance Shop Saturday morning ride would drop all that showed up!

One of the most impressive shops I’ve visited is in Austin – well-lit, shiny floors, and lots of bikes. A shop on the list to visit in Shanghai is LaBici.

From the high end to the hippie, what’s your fav bike shop?

Update

Mellow Johnny’s is announced and it’s commuter-focused.

Monkey See, Monkey Do

My girlfriend spotted this on Boingboing. It’s 1967 bicycle safety film called One Got FatĀ.

It has that weirdness that every Sixties-era public service film had and then some. You see, the kids who demonstrate every thing not to do on a bike are all wearing the freakiest monkey masks I have ever seen. It’s kinda effed up. I mean, I don’t like monkeys to begin with, and now they’re riding bikes on public streets. After watching this, I had this twisted dream involving Planet of the Apes and getting scolded by my elementary school principal.

Another Typical Seattle Commute

I ride 2 commute routes during a week, pretty much the same roads and the same times every day. I’m amazed at the daily differences. Take today for example: 1st real ride on the new gear ratio, nearly crushed by a bus, got smoked by a single-speeder on the Burke, witnessed seattle’s finest patrolling the path down near the U, and got to talk to a Paris-Brest-Paris veteran on the Bus on the way home. This list doesn’t include the amazing, fantastic sunset this evening. Ho-hum, just another wildly varied daily ride.
