Lighted Bike Safety Zone Created With Bike Light Concept

Bike lights are great, but they’re rather small and can sometimes be easily missed. Wouldn’t it be great if the lights gave a better message to drivers to watch out and give the biker his or her deserved space? Heck yeah! So I’m really hoping this great bike light concept below gets off the drawing […]

Cargo Bikes, Familes, Redefining Material Wisdom

Our Love Affair from Car (passé) to Family Cargo Bike (Shifting Transport Identity) Identities portrayed in material items can be psychologically charged, and they are constantly shifting. Cars as the only significant statement portraying one’s identity is a positive way are becoming passé; scooters and bikes are becoming more viewed as images of identity imparting a thoughtful gas-conscious choice, representing a kinder experience, more […]

Eye-Catching Visibelt — Vibrant Protection for Cyclists, Runners, Pedestrians at Night

I love the way this attention-getting, eye-catching, visibelt for cyclists, runners, pedestrians, and any night-time traveler is made of energy-efficient LED lights; spinning out from one’s body like an aura. I want one. It would go great with an actual “Aura” system on my wheels when biking at night. This visibelt will bring bright notice of me or you as […]

Switzerland + Bikes = Beautiful & Awesome

Switzerland looks like one of the prettiest countries in the world. It’s got an amazing quality of life. And I heard recently that it has NEVER been in debt. Wow. I think the U.S. could learn a lesson or two from this leading country (starting with: DON’T POUR YOUR MONEY INTO WARS & “DEFENSE”).

The Bike Store Guys (& Gals)

Who doesn’t love small, independent bike shops (other than big, corporate bike shop chains, that is…)? But for those of us who travel or move around a lot (and I think that’s most people these days), it can be hard to find such bike shops in new cities (ok, not that hard, but not always that easy either). Additionally, in some places, there’s no independent, local bike shop at all. The Bike Store Guys is a website that links up many of these shops, though, and helps create a broader community of such bike shop owners and lovers, for people across the U.S. Here’s more from their website
