The Oregon Manifest presents bicycle frame builders with the challenge of designing the best utility bicycle. These designs range from large cargo bikes that carry heavy loads to lighter bikes suited for the challenges of urban commuting.
Congratulations to Aron who won this years big prize at Bike to Work Day. We hope Aron enjoys his new commuter bike. If you are not Aron that means you did not win the bike, sorry but fear not we will donate another bike at next years event. Good luck in advance!
We have a winner! John Thomas, Frederick County’s Principal Planner and known bicycle enthusiast, won the Bike to Work grand prize, a Breezer i3 folding bike.
Bike to Work Day is THIS Friday. Soooooo SIGN UP, SIGN UP, SIGN UP! Lets show everyone how committed Frederick is to alternative transportation.
I’ve been wondering how the “all-new Giant Twist Freedom DX” would handle in real world applications, so recently I put more than a few miles on this electric bicycle.
We just received our first shipment of electric assist bicycles from Giant. The Giant Freedom Twist DX is unlike other electric bikes I have come in contact with over the years. The Freedom employs what Giant calls Hybrid Technology.
There is a goal to make September 22, 2008 a car free day. If at all possible please help with this goal. Ride your bike, telecommute, car pool, take a day off, quit your job, etc. What ever it takes.
The Frederick Bike to Work Pit stop was a great success in spite of the rain. Around 50 cyclists, young and old, gathered at the Frederick MARC station this morning for light fare and bike chit-chat.
Welcome to Bike Month everybody!!! This morning I was greeted with perfect temperatures and a cool breeze as I cycled to work. I want to encourage everyone to enjoy the same pleasure. This month is packed with fun stuff!
Today we held our second bike commuter clinic. Basic bike commuter tips were covered as well as winter commuting tips. Once again John Gorham (Single Speed Outlaw team member) headed up the discussion.
As some of you may know Danielle and I recently relocated to a home closer to the shop. Part of the reason we moved was to make it easy to cycle to the shop.
Well folks the winner has presented herself! Today a very excited Jennifer Eberhardt of Frederick came in to pick up the Breezer Zag8 folding bike that we raffled off to promote Bike to Work Day.
Danielle, Roger and I had a lot of fun at this past Friday’s bike to work celebration. The event attracted riders both young and old atop all sorts of bicycles. We were offering free coffee and bagels to warm up the slightly chilly riders.
It is always fun for me to talk about bicycle commuting. The benefits are many and I would encourage everyone to use a bike as basic transportation at least once. We kicked off bike month with a commuter clinic.
