While headed to the grocery store while traveling through Petaluma, California, I randomly came across the Rapha bus, as they are filming a California ride. Team rider Evil Ryan was kind enough to provide me with a cycling cap and let me take pictures of the bus.. thanks!

The nonprofit organization KVIBE (Kalihi Valley Instructional Bike Exchange) has ordered a custom made cargo bike by Portland, Oregon company Metrofiets to make their mechanic program mobile. The plan is to extend their warehouse beyond the building by traveling to nearby schools to teach underprivileged youth about bicycles, on a bicycle. Before heading to its final home at KVIBE, the cargo bike did a bit of sightseeing and racing! KVIBE coordinator Sau Hsu pedaled me around Honolulu and beyond in the cargo load for a few great adventures.
Photo Stop: Waikiki Beach!
You don’t need a cargo bike to transport giant things in Hawaii.. bicycle surfboard racks do the trick!
The bike poses with Olympic swimmer Duke Kahanamoku
Sau pedaled the cargo bike with me in it for a 12.8 mile time trial over rolling hills and through the rain.. epic!

The cargo bike is at its new home in Kalihi Valley, about to go on its first official work-related ride on March 17th for the Great Kalihi Cargo Haul. The ride will promote youth cycling by providing up to 100 helmets for kids and encourage the children to work on the land, with the ending point at the Kokua Kalihi Valley nature preserve, Ho’oulu ‘Aina.

Many apologies for the absence… So many fun things happened this year since I moved to Berlin. The sun is setting earlier. The air is dark and chilly. Woah it’s already December! The end of a year. So a catch up. One more big party is coming up for your all year conclusion! I need more girls to race! ( ´艸｀) 〜♡
+ + THIS FRIDAY December 9, at Keirin Cycle Culture Café. Roll at 8:00pm + +
Pioneers of the global fixed gear bike culture Keirin Cycle Culture Café and Rollapaluza come together for the first ever Rollapaluza roller-race in Berlin.
Keirin Cycle Culture Café is recognized worldwide as the first ever “fixed gear shop” having first opened back in 2004 as a hangout for their messenger mates (all members of Keirin and Rollapaluza are ex-couriers), selling them coffee, bikes and parts and mending their bikes. ( http://www.keirinberlin.de/ )
The first Rollapaluza roller race was held in a pub in London in 2000 and Rollpaluza involves two riders racing over 500 metres on custom built static roller-rigs with their progress displayed on a huge dial and their times recorded by split-second digital timing, all to the backdrop of cheering crowds and pumping music.
Never seen Rollapaluza? check their movies: http://www.rollapaluza.de/movies
P.S. I’ll tell you about this + more stuff… but later.
