Elgin, JC Higgins, J.C. Higgins, They're All Sears bikes, and all freaking awesome!!  I love that the Firestone bikes are all the same frames too... It's too bad there isn't more information out there about these bikes as they totally kick ass.  Yes, they're not quite as good quality as a Schwinn, but they're absolutely serviceable and personally I find they fit taller riders a bit better.  One really could ask why AREN'T these bikes ruling the world about now?!?

With all the hubabaloo I've seen about the bike lanes and some of the frankly ludicrous attitudes shown by some people out there, I found this article quite refreshing!! Check out Average Joe Cyclist's take on things... read more...

Numbers numbers numbers... The City of Vancouver has pledged $25 million over 3 years for bike lane improvements, including the Hornby and Dunsmuir separated bike lanes. Here's a look at how that looks compared to other capital programs the CoV takes on every year. read more...

What's In Your Bag?

No, I don't mean road pops... I mean things like tools!! As a lot of you know I carry a fairly complete set of tools with me when i ride, but I'm a really firm believer that everyone should have at least enough with them to at least fix a flat. read more...

Let Them Eat Cake!

by Bryn — last modified Jul 27, 2010 10:49 AM
Filed Under:

It seems to be a trend lately that Mayors and Council members from various cities around the world have taken to the streets and actually TRIED biking around the cities they are responsible for. Not surprisingly the results are almost always the same - it comes as a huge eye opener, prompting significant changes in policy and a sudden realization that they really haven't been serving their public as well as they could have been. read more...

Filed Under:

Vancouver has put $25 million over the next 2 years on the table for bike route improvements. The goal is to increase cycling from the 3.7% share it currently has to 10% of all trips, a worthy goal which some say is a pipe dream. read more...

Vancouver goes Bike Crazy

by Bryn — last modified May 21, 2010 04:33 PM

I am absolutely in love with our current city council when it comes to bike-related infrastructure changes. This council has done more for cyclists in the past few years than has happened in probably the last 15 or so. And the hits just keep on coming!! read more...

We were chatting the other night about coming up with a 'Rules for Cruising' bible... Got me thinking about cycling education in general, and realizing that what's important for us is a lot different from your average commuter... read more...

Cruiser Thoughts

Filed Under:

The thing about an open mind is you change your views from time to time. When I first started cruising it was "Seat as low as possible, NO HELMETS and Coaster brake or nothing"... These days it's pretty much the opposite... read more...
