Benefits of Bike Blogging

fat_bloggerr.jpg Reading about the self-induced misery, woe-as-me, sad, geek, overweight bloggers, nearing an early death in the NYTimes, I thought, “get outside!” At least with bike blogging, we’re like out testing and riding bikes – traveling around and blogging about it. And for the celeb watchers, Bicycling is featuring Dr. McDreamy on the cover who lost 15 pounds by riding his bike – yippee! I see a blogger episode of the Biggest Loser already being planned. The irony of social media is how unsocial and unhealthy it is for the people glued to their computer screens, least of which is how unproductive it can become.

I get asked about posting frequency a lot and the volume you read from us is the mininum to push any sort of traffic advertisers and Google will notice. But note that more volume, like that of a Gawker Media blog, and you have no life, outside of Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, WordPress, and various other social media apps. I don’t consider that heroic, btw, even if the money is purportedly good or slashdotted as being really not that much. It’s more heroic to blog and balance your life. For us, there’s just too much riding out there to do and our posting volume shows that.

Hope you all are ok with that and are out riding as well.

RideCivil: Aquatic April on 4/11 at Westlake Center, 5:30 PM

The next Ridecivil ride is queued up for this coming Friday. The 10 day forecast looks a bit damp so I’ve themed this the Aquatic April ride. Bring your snorkel for your helmet, flippers for your cleats, swimsuit instead of your favorite woolly knickers, whatever you like. Just bring yourself on down for a fun Friday ride. As always our focus will be on promoting civility between pedestrians, motorists and ourselves.

Meet at 5:30 at Westlake Center park, we’ll depart around 6:15 for an hour plus, consensus driven ride through our fair city. Destination TBD, but generally involves food and drinks. Looking forward to seeing you there.

p.s. Don’t forget a snorkel lock. It sucks to have your snorkel stolen.

Another Alternative Transport

Another alternative transportation that totally f’ing rules – at least from a tourist point of view – is Maglev! We hit 301K km/h, got to the airport from downtown in 7 minutes (an hour in a cab) and you wouldn’t know you were going that fast unless you looked outside

Congestion Charging

All over the news here in Shanghai, on CNN International, is NYC’s congestion charging initiative. Following London and the UK, NYC is about to implement fees to drive into the city. Woohoo we say and Dahon has already got a page up supporting the measure and expect other manufactures to follow.

We’d hope most people would just realize, “hey you can ride in,” but if we’ve got to do some hand waving to help, then ok.

Your thoughts on city’s charging to drive?
