Hey, its Wednesday, that means it’s time for us to catch up on all of the week’s cycling news that you haven’t been reading about on Cycle Twin Cities.
As they continue to find more cracking and problems, Sabo Bridge is still a topic for discussion, only this time it is people talking about why the cables failed. The biggest development was the report by a fellow blogger (Marco of ibikempls) reporting that a day and a half before the cables failed, he saw a police car and an ambulance driving on the bridge. Both the city and Marco have come back and said that they don’t know that has anything to do with the cables snapping, but it was enough for Fox News to sit-up and take notice.
The North American Handmade Bike show is this coming weekend in Sacramento, and as usual the Twin Cities is representing hard. We will post about this later in the week but for now, Jeff from Bike Jerks has a nice little preview the bikes being sent from Peacock Groove and Speedhound. We had the chance to see the paint job for the Peacock Groove bike in person last week and, wow, just wow.
While we wait patiently for Artcrank 2012 to get here we can’t express how much we love this print from Aesthetic Apparatus. Good news for all of us, it is currently available for purchase, here. (Via Stuff About Minneapolis)
Aaron at the Minneapolis Musette has a nice little write-up about the University of Minnesota’s cycling team and their recent all-night fundraising ride. We are glad that Aaron went to the event, because bedtime around here is about 9:00…..
Bike Magazine came to town for Frostbike and they managed to snap some awesome pictures at One-on-One. Aaahh, the junkyard, that place has just about everything. (Thanks for the tip Paul)
Hey, the Fat Bike Frozen Forty was last weekend. Looks like a blast... now if we only had a fat bike.
Ever wonder about the Old Cedar Ave Bridge and why this seemingly perfect cycling route sits rotting away? Reuben at VeloTraffic looked into it, and long story short, don’t hold your breath for the City of Bloomington to do anything about it anytime soon.
Finally, those crazy kids from Architecture Minnesota are at it again. Watch in awe.
