Ride With GPS

[Click on this image to enlargen it] I went back and had a second look at RideWithGPS.com, largely upon seeing friend Duncan Watson glow about it on his Facebook page! Very glad I did… The software has been evolving and I’m sure it is still; it has reached a very full-featured state. The image above [...]

An article in Ligfiets.net caught my eye a few days ago, on “Paaltjes” or bollards in English. The gist of the article was that my wife Penny isn’t the first person to have come a cropper on a bollard. Apparently these devices send some 325 cyclists in Europe to the hospital and cause another 2,500 [...]

Vector by AlienOcean

In commenting on the Drymer.nl post we did last October, “Ricky” mentioned the Vector by AlienOcean. I didn’t know the trike offhand so here it is… The thumbnail sketch is a rear-wheel powered, tilting trike with 250 W of power assist. The seat can put you almost a meter (38″) off the ground and they [...]

A little over a year ago we ran a story on then “Postdoctoral researcher Leah Buechley’s (PhD 2007) work on interactive e-textile design” which may have made a few folks wonder how we got that far off topic.

Video: “Taking the Long Way to Work – Two Trikes Commute”

Under any of his names, Glenn Frank (Dregerclock on YouTube, or Terrafirma on ‘BROL) has a really lovely touch with recumbent videos. I was struck by the lighting in this video, great transitions and really good music by Papa_Zulu. Glenn is using a GoPro HD “Hero” wide-angle helmet camera and I like what I see! [...]
