Bring in your bike videos to Times up for a screening.


Every Thursday Time’s Up has been having free screenings of environmental and bike related movies. Now its time for you to bring in yours.

This Thursday, May 31st. at the Time’s Up space in Manhattan…49 East Houston…as if you don’t know. Starts around 8:00pm

If people want to screen a short tomorrow nite, they should arrive by 6:30 to 6:45 p.m., so
we can figure out technical details and make the schedule. Bike shorts should be from
1 to 10 minutes long. DVD format would be great but we can also play from a laptop and i believe we
can even handle Hi8.

Portland biker kicked ass at the NACCC


This in from a cool blog… Bike Portland

“Portland messengers fared well at the North American Cycle Courier Championships (NACCC) this past weekend in San Francisco.

Local track racer and messenger Zak Kovalicik took home the coveted “Fixie King” crown for having the fasted fixed gear finish in the main race. According to read Bjorn Warloe, who attended the event, it was Kovalicik’s second time as fastest fixie rider.

And it was an all-Portland final in the bike polo tournament, with the team of Mason, Drew, and C Murder taking home the top prize.

A group of Portlanders used the NACCC as an excuse for a bike tour. Reader Tom Rolf rode his fixed gear down to Rickreall, Oregon (a small, country town just west of Salem) to send them off. Check out his photos here.

Back in 2005, Portland played host to the NACCC. Check out my photo gallery of that event.

I believe Zak also won tickets to Ireland on the track. Check out cyclehawk for more details.

Lets get this started…

So we are taking a beating at Critical Mass here in NYC and we need to talk about it. Better than myspace…I found ning. This is a cool free service that allows you to build your own social network just like Myspace, only not owned by Fox mogul, Rupert Murdoch…yet. I created nyc critical mass ning as a place where like minded individuals can discuss critical mass, how to change it, what to try, what to avoid…etc.

Right now the site is private and people need to be invited to join. My goal is to build a network of people, like myspace, to specifically talk about nyc critical mass.

If you would like to be involved goto the ning site and join up.

I know this site is rough right now, but I will work on improving it.

Lets get talkin.

Here is a great blog from Kansas City Missouri… Bikeliker …yes they have alleycats there…

They interviewed Austin about being the 2006 NACC Champion.


I’m getting the impression that the 2008 Naccc is being held in Chicago. Goto Bikeliker to vote on the logo you like best.
