Title: Chrome and Crosby Press
Seen on: Urban Velo
It’s not that Chrome needs OUR help, but I really enjoy this interview video and the straightforward, no crap style of Chrome president Steve McCallion. There aren’t too many companies that have been around so long, are so successful, and appeal to such a broad audience, yet have retained the spirit of their humble beginnings. Steve seems to embody the Chrome brand as if it’s an extension of his personality. And we all know they don’t make crappy bags either. I have yet to visit a Chrome storefront, but I’ll certainly make the trip should I be close enough. Or, hey Steve, wanna open one in Indianapolis?

Title: Red Hook Crit Art Installation
Seen on: Urban Velo
Artist, Eric Corriel, was asked to create an installation for this year’s Red Hook Crit that just went down in Brooklyn. Last year he projected an animation onto a warehouse wall, but this year wanted to combine the projection with the riders themselves. As Corriel describes his piece,

“I was first asked to participate in the Red Hook Crit in 2012 and for that iteration I projected an animated abstraction of a bicycle race onto a warehouse. For 2013 I removed all elements of abstraction and put my art in direct contact with the race participants and projected onto (them and) the track itself. Instead of the art being about its subject, now it’s an inseparable part of it.”

Time’s Up tour of 7 crash sites. Friday, March 15th, 2013-Criminally Suspect Ride

The rise in car violence in NYC has definitely alarmed local residents especially since many of these crashes have not been properly investigated by the NYPD. Compacted with the fact that the cops have seemed to found time to continue their winter ticketing blitz of cyclists involved in traffic violations.

Time’s Up is taking action and leading a tour of sites where cyclists and pedestrians have been killed in recent months to draw attention to the seriousness of car violence and the need for the NYPD to change its policy.

Here is more information from Time’s Up.

TIME’S UP! LEADS BICYCLE TOUR TO 7 MEMORIALS FOR PEDESTRIANS AND CYCLISTS KILLED BY LAW-BREAKING DRIVERS ABSOLVED OF CRIMINALITY BY N.Y.P.D.

WHAT:
Bicycle-ride to seven locations in Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn where memorials will be made for pedestrians and cyclists killed by drivers who committed traffic violations, yet within hours of each crash the NYPD declared there was “No Criminality Suspected,” and the accident investigation reports were never released to the public, including members of the victims’ families.

WHEN:
Friday, March 15, 2013

WHERE:
10am, ABC No Rio, 156 Rivington Street, Manhattan

New York, NY – On March 15, 2013, Time’s Up! will lead a bicycle tour to seven memorials that will be erected for pedestrians and cyclists that were killed by automobiles that committed at least one traffic violation.
