Title: Brillibrilliant / Unicorn Racing Dream

Seen on: Urban Velo
Description: I’m not immersed in professional-esque racing culture, and probably a lot of you aren’t either, but I can appreciate these road teams that bring a more grounded approach to road racing culture and maybe making themselves more accessible to everyday riders like ourselves who equally enjoy a good spin around town. The Unicorn Racing team has coupled with the Hotel AM Brillantengrund to support their racing endeavors and offer something to riders of all stripes in the process.

The Vienna hotel sponsor offers affordable rates for locals and traveling cyclists, supplying pasta nights, group rides, room space for bikes, and insider information for area rides.

Title: Urban Legend Cyclewear
Seen on: Urban Velo
Description: If you want to ride on a bike backwards…helmet-less…drinking alcohol…while also looking stylish, apparently Budapest, Hungary is the place to do it. Poor riding advice aside, the new Adventurers collection by Urban Legend is designed for the urban cyclist who is just as fashion conscious as they are in need of all-weather materials. The summer collection consists of pack away jackets and cape-dresses that also double as pillows when crumpled up.

Winter Alleycat Round Up 2013

Here is a quick round up of some winter alleycat races.

Miss Thang may not have been able to perform during the cold weather of President Obama’s inauguration,

but that didn’t stop a bunch of D.C. couriers and other bike maniacs.

That same weekend of 1/20/13 was host to an inauguration alleycat: [...]

Video Fridays–New in 2013

Here are some videos to warm you up in the cold frigid weather.

St Louis Lock-In Pinata Video
Seen on: Urban Velo
The St Louis Bike Polo Lock-In was this past weekend, featuring another level of 24 hour indoor polo party mayhem. This was my third trip to this one of a kind event, and it gets better every time even if this year the sleep deprivation got the best of me and I found myself curled up in the back of a rental Kia at 4 am. This is video of the 4th annual pinata smashing that happens around 1 am, giving but a taste of the party. Until next year kids.

InRoads Trailer
Seen on: Urban Velo
InRoads is a short documentary about the handmade bike culture in the Denver/Boulder area. The full film will premiere on February 23rd in Denver. Visit their site for more updates.

State Bicycle Co. Team Issue Helmet by Lazer
Seen on: Urban Velo
Now that’s a good lookin’ helmet. Manufactured by Lazer, the State Bicycle Co. team issue helmet weighs in at 290 grams with 16 vents and they still manage to slap a good lookin’ logo on that thing. I’ve worn a Lazer helmet before and am glad to say it fit my weirdly small adult head just fine, while working for normal sized heads all the same.

You can buy the helmet for $69.99 on the State site.

Are YOU Cyclist?
Seen on: Urban Velo
Here’s an amusing video made by the shop Bike n Hike out of Portland. I get the feeling they’re going the Portlandia route on this one (a stereotype feedback loop?), but hey, it’s more amusing than the bike shop commercials in my neck of the woods.
