Injured bicyclist, Cannon, what ?

DURANGO, Colo. (AP) -- A bicyclist riding in a multiple sclerosis fundraiser was bombarded by cannon blast in what authorities suspect was a teenage prank gone awry. The La Plata County Sheriff's office say they plan to interview five teenagers with their parents next week about the cannon that was fired at the bicyclist Sunday during a multiple sclerosis fundraiser in Durango. Authorities say the blast was similar to what is used at high school and college games to celebrate a touchdown. Sheriff's officials say a gauze-like material soaked in an unknown chemical caused an explosion near the legs of 37-year-old Ian Altman. nformation from: Durango Herald The explosion lodged small pieces in Altman's legs and arms. He finished the race, then later was briefly hospitalized with a fever and possible infection.

Veggie Oil Project

We here at HGC are continually striving to make our business more and more people-friendly and environmetnally friendly.... That's why eco-consciousness and community were part of our small business plan, and they continue to be driving factors in every decision we make. We have done quite a bit of research regarding veggie oil conversion systems and have become quite fond of our new friends over at Golden Fuel Systems. This is the part where we humbly ask for your support as we start toward our goal of raising the roughly $4000 to convert Big Yellow into a veggie powered truck. We think it may very well be the very first of its kind in this area! Let's get Detroit and Michigan some wonderful new attention: community, small business, AND environmental awareness!  READ MORE

PeopleForBikes.Org

I just learned about a great new website to support pro-bike policies and spread the joy of bikes! Check out peopleforbikes.org! They're collecting one million names in support of a better world for biking -- one that's safer, more convenient, and more appealing for everyone.
Every day, millions of Americans like us ride for their health, for the environment, for their communities, and for the pure joy of bicycling. But until now, only a tiny fraction of riders have stood up to help improve bicycling in America.
Peopleforbikes.org is going to change all that. They're building a national movement with the clout and influence to get things done. That means promoting bike-riding on an individual level, but also sending a unified message to our elected leaders, the media, and the public that bicycling should have their full support.
Check out their great new website to take a pledge for biking and learn how you can help:

Dyson you have some NERVE!

This post is completely unbicycle related sorry I must rant. Saw this fan walking through the grocery store, and though to my self interesting, until I saw the price....$329 !!! Why would you ever pay $329 for a fan?  This fan didn't even put out that much air and was very loud.  I would like to personally thank Dyson for another over priced pile of sh*t.   found a nice review on amazon that made me laugh. From  a user named Michigoon "You'll laugh yourself straight back in line for a refund once you figure out the secret behind this ridiculous device. The secret is that there is absolutely nothing bladeless about this device. What you're actually getting is a regular fan (inside the base) with a big ring on top that's designed, mostly, to confuse you into shelling out hundreds of dollars for a desk fan. Repeat that- there is a regular fan inside the base, and a weird thing on top to divert the air at you. Take any portable fan, stick it inside a PVC pipe with an angle on the end, and you'll get the same effect. It's just as noisy as a regular fan, it uses up the same power, it does not produce any more airflow (unless your old fan is getting really worn down). In fact if anything this is much less efficient than a regular desk fan, because instead of the air coming straight from the fan to you, now the air goes from the fan and through the big silly ring on top. It is not easier to clean, because you have to crack the base open to get at the fan if you ever decide to clean it, and I can't even imagine how you'd clean the top bit. So what does it actually do? It looks like a giant iPod accessory, and it costs ten times as much".

Velodrome

By the late 1800s almost every major city in the eastern United States had an oval velodrome track with steeply banked curves to enable bicycle racers to achieve high speeds. In the early 1900s, ethnically diverse working-class riders dominated professional track racing.
