Rush Hour in Beijing

In another clip from our Blogging Beijing by Bike videos, we ride during rush hour. In a city with 13 million people, 3 million cars and millions of bikes, riding is a chaotic experience. We just rode, found a way through it, and joined the flow in Beijing.

BMP Off To A Rocky Start

Less than a month after Mayor Nichols released Seattle’s Bike Master Plan to the city, it seems political pressure is already derailing some of the key components. Released this week in Cascade’s Braking News:

The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) has backed down from a project to improve bicycle and pedestrian safety because of what appears to be political pressure from a minority of business owners on Seattle’s Stone Way North.

Bikes + Art = Skatepark

I was at the Javabean getting espresso and saw a postcard for Bike + Art = Skatepark. I’m still trying to figure out what that is, but the site says,” we’re having a bicycle decorating party, a bike parade, an Art Walk, AND a benefit for River City Skate Park.”

That sounds def like something Bike Hugger would want to do. They’ll decorate bikes, then parade them, and tour South Park all to raise money for the River City Skatepark. River City must mean the Duwamish? And maybe they’ll put a bmx track near the park?

Amazon 2.0

The NY Times published an article today about Fulfillment by Amazon and how Amazon is developing other ways to make money. I’m quoted with other merchants in the article about how well the program is working. We use FBA to fulfill Clip-n-Seals and hopefully soon our Bike Hugger shirts.

Both of those products have done well from Bike Hugger traffic and we’ve got more products on the way.

Biomega @ Design Within Reach

“Whoa!” I opened up the Design within Reach catalog and on page one there’s a Biomega AMS 8 Speed Bicycle. Being sold at DWR, is probably the epitome of bikes as a designer item and it’s a commuter bike at that.

The Biomega @ Design within Reach follows the UM by Puma, another designer concept bike. We’ll have to post on this further, when I see one of the bikes at DWR’s stores, and then start thinking about who’s going to wrench the bikes for them?
