One very brave cyclist and one almost as brave motorcycle cameraman.

Cool shades sister.

Nutcase helmets rock

I want one of these. Or maybe the one with the shark. A fun, practical bike helmet that doesn’t make you look like an idiot (well maybe). The pun in the name is nice too. The full range is here.

Footwork.

It’s all explained here by the New York Times. Nice animation too.

Bradley Wiggins has made public his blood profiles to prove that his performance on the Tour wasn’t enhanced in any way. You can get them here.

Brilliant. I’m no scientist and can’t tell you what they mean but I applaud the transparency.

The Tour de France is a great event that I thoroughly enjoy. This year the emergence of Bradley Wiggins was a real highlight. I urged him up the Ventoux. For me this information release caps a complete performance by the Brit. Well done.

ouch

As the little caption says, “it doesn’t look good”. look carefully and you’ll see that the poor bloke in the Columbia top is going to be sore tomorrow.

100miles

I’ve been known to include the Inner Circle of Regent’s Park on my rides but never 160 laps. Well done boys. The video here is worth a look. <link>

First Hutchinson tyres with It’s Your Ride from Cinecycle on Vimeo then Duffy and Diet Coke draw on the coolness of the singlespeed in their advertising.

Thanks CoolHunting for the Hutchinson vimeo.

If you’re thinking about buying a singlespeed for a commute, UrbanVelo does a wonderful list of all your options here. Here endth my fixie posts. Much as I think they’re cool, there are people more qualified than me.
