It is bicycle weather. I’m pretty excited about it. I filled out all of the requisite paperwork this week to park my bike in the building where I work. Parking inside is the best way to avoid this happening again. They issued me the little blue tag in the image below to make it legit. So, Wednesday night I put some air in the tires. It is supposed to rain until Friday. But I am hoping to start pedaling to work starting next Mon.
Speaking of biking, I’m not really a helmet wearer. Ok, I’m not a helmet wearer at all. But, thanks to creative Swedish design, maybe we won’t have to wear a plastic dome to be protected while riding. I came across this amazing piece of Scandinavian innovation today on Cool Hunting.
Here is what it looks like undeployed:
It is basically a hipster’s w*t dream.
–“Dude, I like your scarf.”
“It’s not a scarf”
–“I mean I like your hood”
“It’s not a hood, it’s a Swedish airbag helmet.”
–“Well, I like your yellow suspenders, moustache and flannel, too.”
I also like how they dropped all of the blacks out of that second image. Moving on… This week I also saw the little device below on TWBE. Yeah, that’s right– bluetooth bike speakers. Finally.
Completely unrelated to bikes, this went up on Tuesday.
