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?!?

Olympic Bike Route Detours Announced

This is still a "Proposed" set of closures but I'm pretty sure it'll stick...

2010 Olympic Bike Network Closures

So this is what they're doing to us...

Like I said, this is just the "Proposed" routing right now.  And it's ugly...

So how easy do you think it will be to get through those "red" areas anyhow?  Think they're going to just let us trundle along like everything's normal?

Good luck getting your bike on and off the Seabus - you're stuck going through the entire Waterfront station.

I REALLY wouldn't be surprised to see a few of the areas that cut real close to red zones end up being closed off all together...

Maybe they'll surprise us, who knows.



  • Light Red: Venue closure area
  • Dark Red: 24 Hour Security Closure
  • Purple: "other" bicycle connections
  • Blue: Pedestrian-only corridor
  • Green: On-street (ie mixed traffic) bicycle route

So, those "mixed" traffic areas... How nice, kind and friendly do you think drivers are going to be given half the major routes through the city are closed?
