Fisher-Price Smart Cycle

The NYTimes picks up the story about the Fisher-Price Smart Cycle – we posted about the child-size trainer earlier this year. We still like the idea of training next to your child. While they “whack-a-mole,” you can do your sweaty spinervals.

Unsure if Fisher-Price has dropped Richard Simmons from their marketing – the bloggers had fun with that odd choice of a spokesperson.

Filmed By Bike

Filmed by Bike is a festival of bike-theme movie shorts – check the program for titles like Tag 5:10, a bike messenger chases a rollerblader through the streets of London and Snot Rocket Bike, an upwards look at the grim reality of biking.

I don’t see where you can view the vids online, but the festival posted on their success and they sell DVDs. We’ve been uploading hugger videos to Google. Also see Start 2 Finish, a documentary about the racing scene in the Pacific Northwest.

Landis Tests Positive

It seems ages ago that Floyd Landis made his incredible comeback on Stage 17 of the 2006 Tour de France. Yet, as we approach the 2007 tour, Landis still find himself in the heat of charges surrounding his positive tests for doping. This afternoon, NPR aired an article citing additional positive tests from Landis’ back-up samples taken throughout various other stages.

Coasting Coverage

The AP picks up the Coasting story writing about how the industry is hoping to drive sales with automatic bikes and enjoyment over performance. I know, I know, in previous posts, the Coasting disses come in, but anything that can get the “my dad” demographic riding more or any other demographic riding more is good for everyone. Just like the Bianchi Milano, what Electra is doing with cruiser bikes, Clever Cycles, and an industry that’s just making cycling easier.
