Specialized Bicycles builts a wind tunnel

Mike Sinyard said “Aero Is Everything” a few times in the last couple of weeks and everybody anticipated a new product launch.

Instead, his company launched something a little more interesting — their brand new wind tunnel to test bicycles, accessories and apparel in Morgan Hill, California.

Specialized engineers will hold a live, online Q&A session beginning at 4 PM California time just 45 minutes after I post this). Tag your questions with #aeroiseverything on Twitter.

South County Explorations

Although I live near Santa Cruz, most of the cyclists I’ve met and know in this area live or ride on San Francisco Peninsula Roads. Now that I work in Santa Clara, I have opportunity to explore South Bay roads. Last night I ventured even further south to Morgan Hill so I can try the Coyote Creek Trail for the first time.


Morgan Hill motorist: guilty of vehicular manslaughter


Synopsis: Cyclist Bruce Finch was riding his bike on Uvas Road in Morgan Hill, CA on October 5, 2008 when motorist Rita Campos illegally ran the stop sign into Uvas Road, killing Mr Finch. In spite of the myth that motorists are law abiding citizens while cyclists are all law breaking miscreants who deserve what they get, Santa Clara County Attorney Marcia Wallis prosecuted this case, and brought in competent expert testimony that convinced the jury that Campos had to have run the stop sign and then moved her car to hide the evidence of her careless driving.
