Via a Hawaii connection, I was introduced to Dan, co-founder of Portland Design Works while visiting Oregon for a tree conference in August. PDW has created a range of innovative cycling products that consider safety, durability, comfort and style. Major cool points when you rock these products. They’ve acquired a building in NE Portland and Dan gave me a tour of their spot.
They’ve got a giant space, complete with a PDW basketball hoop
The meeting loft with a lookbook featuring articles about their awesome products
Office for the important business stuff with Erik
Great rooftop view of the city
Ping pong table.. most important room in the place
Additionally, PDW is the home of the only Circulus in the world!
Fantastic PDW classy unique product picks: Danger Zone Light, Takeout Basket, 3wrencho
Please check out the website, read their blog, get a cool light… etc.
Cheers to Dan for the tour!

The girls of Hub Honeys got together for our January bike, craft and social event. The agenda this week was to create top-tube protectors! We “liberated” a banner from the university to use as material, along with foam pipe insulation and button snaps. They turned out pretty cool! Here’s some pics I took from the evening..

Mission “Oh snap!” for button snaps to fasten the tube protector

Christmas came early for me this year, I was stoked to receive my super custom Blicksbags in the mail today! It’s beautifully made by Madeline and the team based in Cleveland using sustainable materials and methods. I love my recycled vinyl patch with the CMYK markings, as a designer it’s perfect for me. I’ve been after a smaller bag as I usually fill my Crumpler bag with a million things and end up with a stiff neck. I took my Pica for a test drive down to the beach, it’s light and comfortable, stays in place and I can fit way more in than I expected I would. Camera, phone, Ipod, DVD’s, chunky wallet, water bottle, sunnies, a lock, keys and I had room left to spare. Even though I’m trying to cut down on carrying so much stuff around whilst riding, my first instinct was to try and fit as much in as possible, old habits die hard I guess! I’m really pleased with my new bag, thanks so much Madeline, you’ve made my day!
There’s a Blicksbags Pica up for grabs for the winner of the Ladies Photo Comp, I’m sure they’ll be as chuffed with it as I am!

The 2011 TyK Calenders Women’s and Men’s calendars have been shot. This year, the Women’s calendar was photographed by Kim Capriotti, while Christopher Dilts returned to shoot the Men’s calendar.
The TyK Project was created to address modern day stereotypes of women. Frustrated with being pegged as either mechanically savvy but asexual, or cute but inept with their bikes, these PinUps showcase the dual nature that women cyclists embody.
The Ladies of TyK are everyday cyclists. They are not models. These women ride the streets of Chicago for a living, for transportation, or just for fun. But once in the photo studio, they’re given a chance to show off their femininity.
The Proceeds from the TyK Project go directly to the Chicago Women’s Health Center [CWHC]. Providing health care and health education to women in Chicago, they have long filled a gap in the US health care system. TyK is proud to give CWHC a leg up.
