    Whatever happened with the $20/mo tax-free bike commuter credit? Someone asked me today and I haven't heard about this in months now. It seemed like it was an HR nightmare and no one really knew how to set it up. Thanks

    Commuter Check advertises that option on their website and it's part of their setup. I've heard of a small handful of employers that offer it (don't have a list handy, sorry), but yeah, there's been no mass rush to sign for this. Setup is trivial — like any other employee benefit program.

    Hi! I'm organizing a year long bike tour and media project around sustainable livlihoods across the Americas. Do you have any ideas of folks I could contact about publicity, funding, neat organizations to get in touch with, etc?

All you have to do is: join the Bicycle group on Climate Crossroads (http://www.climatecrossroads.org) , Sierra Club's social network on climate; post a picture to the group's gallery; write a haiku about your bike and/or bike commuting. Deadline to enter is May 31 at noon PST.

    Hi,
    I'm writing a story for the San Francisco Chronicle about bike fashion. The Chron needs fashion show photos, and I notice you have shots from the SF Bike Expo fashion show. Would you be able to make those available to the Chron? I don't know what their rates are; I'm a freelancer. Also, do you know if photos exist from the SF Bike Coalition fashion show at the Rickshaw stop on May 13? I attended that event, but did not photograph it. Thanks, eric

    Hi Richard,
    I am a Bay Area cyclist myself, so I a love your blog. I am hoping you might be able to write about a team of cyclists from the Bay Area who riding in the Death Ride on July 10, and raising money for a nonprofit called TurningWheels for Kids, which builds bikes for kids in need and gives them away during the holidays. Their goal is to raise $60K.
    Here's a link to their info: http://www.active.com/donate/turningwheelsforkids
    The group is completely grassroots, and every dollar donated goes toward buying bikes!
    Thanks!

    Found an article today about a young guy and some friends riding cross country to raise money for breast cancer. Unfortunatley he was struck and killed New Mexico before reaching their final destination. I love cycling but my biggest deterrent is traffic. Incidents like this only make my fears grow.

    The article is like stuff you've posted before.

    Keep up the news and more importantly, keep cycling!

    Hi Richard,

    I've been a longtime reader of your blog. I've lived in Las Cruces, NM for many years and have been cycling in and around the city for at least 3. I just thought I'd let you know about an all-too-typical view of cycling from a Las Cruces resident in the newspaper's Letter to the Editor page.

    Keep up the good work.

    I recently read two ‘letter to the editor’ pieces that were aimed at the college aged rider returning to campus. At least one of the letters was along the lines of ‘you’re an adult now, time to stop riding like a kid’. I’m one the local Bicycle Advisory Committee and we’ve been discussing getting something in the college paper. I wanted to go back to these letters but can’t find them. I’m pretty sure I originally found them from links here. Does these letters sound familiar at all?

    Hi Daniel, there’s a vague familiarity, but like you I can’t recall the specifics of where I might have seen this.

    Hi,

    I am the singer of the video sent by the previous user. :).
    The video was added by our friend, so feel free to use it ;).
    Also a comment about the lyrics. You’re right, the message is about saving the earth. Also that people should take problems into their own hands. I also translated it in Google, so i realized that half of the text went missing and some of it is lost in translation. That’s sad. On the all I hope You’ll see the beauty in the language, video and music….And of course, by the end of the day we adore bicycles :))))

  • IRIDE Italian bikes
    October 28, 2010 - 2:28 pm | Permalink

    Hello Richard,

    I like reading your blog. I know you don’t do a lot of product news, but I am wondering if you would post something about these sexy Italian bikes I am importing.

    After visiting Italy many times, my new hot Italian wife’s family told me to visit a nearby factory, they know of my bicycle affliction.

    The Gemmati Velocipedi factory has been there making high performance IRIDE bikes since 1919. I visited several years in a row, making friends. Noticing I had found the undiscovered Italian bicycle maker, I decided to import their bikes to the USA.

    I am bringing in the beautiful track bikes now, with roadsters coming soon. They are classic steel lugged frames, all Italian, with the appropriate Miche gruppo.

    See pictures of the factory here: http://www.irideusa.com

    Ask me any questions.

    Dear Richard,

    I have been checking out your blog and it looks great. I have a product that you may be interested in using. Its called the Clean Bottle. It’s a bottle that unscrews at both ends so you can actually clean it and dry it. It helps athletes easily clean out all that funk and gunk from the bottom of their bottles. We also donate 10% of profits to charities people can vote for on our website.

    We started Clean Bottle in May and its been going great. We are in about 500 stores and 8 countries so far, have been reviewed on many sites including lifehacker.com, and will be featured in SELF and PREVENTION Magazines! Most of our pick up came when the founder dressed up like a giant Clean Bottle and ran alongside the riders at the Tour de France. Check out some of the video here: http://www.versus.com/cycling/videos/david-mayer-on-clean-bottle-with-robbie-ventura—stage-18/

    We’d love to get you a bottle so you can test it out and let me know your thoughts. If you’d like it would be great if you could review it.

    Thanks again and keep up the great work,

    Andrew
