Bike bloggers meet-up in Sacramento

Recently I was in Sacramento where coincidentally the Amgen Tour of California was holding its opening time trial. I stopped into the R-16 bar to have a few beers with some of my favorite bloggers. It was noisy. There was beer.

Still, I think the conversations I had with Paul Dorn from the Bike Commute Tips Blog, (right) Fritz from Cycleicious, and David Bernstein, voice of the Fredcast (left) are worth a listen. (That's your host with the headphones!)

Two Cities: Hong Kong and San Francisco

A visit with family offers a chance to report from Hong Kong. We visit the densest square kilometer on Earth then ride in bike paradise Lantau Island. Along the way, we meet Martin Turner of the Hong Kong Bicycle Alliance and stop in at the stylish RodaFixa bike shop.

Then back home in San Francisco, The Bicycle Coalition kicks off the Big 56 Campaign as the long awaited Bike Plan awakes from the court injunction.
