PORTLAND, Ore. — A new statue erected in downtown Portland celebrates Zoobombers, a group of bicyclists that enjoy a love-hate relationship with the city.
The group was named for bike riders who began riding MAX up to the Oregon Zoo, then taking an elevator to the top of that stop — and then bombing down West Hills neighborhood streets.
Pure Sweet Hell.
From the same guy that did: Where are you go? Brian Vernor
A Ohio man (Phil Nagle) will attempt to ride his bicycle through 48 US states in 48 days to raise US$48,000 for the Lymphoma & Leukemia Society, and land a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.
That’s 8000 miles. Best of Luck Phil.
I just got this in the ol’ Myspace mailbox today. It’s about time Seattle had a film fest. The fact that entries are due by today, June 1st, makes it a little more difficult. But since I’ve got nothing to submit, I’ll just be happy to know that this is taking place. Hope to bring out more info as I get it, and I’ll see you there!
Ok, so I don’t only like bikes. I also like the Muppets. And though mashups are so 2002, I still like them as well. And I like Peaches. So this is awesome. John V. was telling me about this last night at Freiburgers bday during polo.
I’d love to rock one of these on my top tube. Click on the top image to be whisked away to youtube where you can watch it in action. I wish the commercial was still floating around about this bike.
I really like the look of the old high wheelers, and would love to get one, even one of the newly constructed models. A bit of history that you can experience first hand. It wasn’t that long ago that penny farthings were the fastest things on earth. So occasionally I’ll put a snippet up about the people that still race them, or the folks that toured on them, or, as in this case, the other people in the world that are inspired by them. I can’t say I agree with the route they went down, but I give them points for originality. It looks like the danger factor was one of the elements they wanted to keep around.
Alright. Just a quick post to say to clear your calendars for two events. One in June, one in July.
June 20th 9:11pm: Solstice Scavenger hunt. ends at 5:11am on June 21st. Scavenge all night for things on your list. Finish up with a big group breakfast!
July 12th: Tour de Watertower Guerilla Time Trial.
