    Fun For Friday: Skate Crate

    September 5, 2014 Yesterday we were waxing poetic about two-wheeled fun, both human and electric powered. Today – well, school has started around the U.S., and so we’re just looking for some Friday fun, no matter how few or many wheels it involves. And we found it, at the Skate Crate Kickstarter page. Skate Crate…

    Hail to the Helmet Artists – Nutcase at Eurobike

    September 2, 2014 Amidst the shiny new bikes and accessories unveiled at Eurobike, Europe’s biggest bike show, Nutcase Helmets brought something a little different: live art by the three fantastic artists shown above: Todd Standish (left), Sandra Ramirez (center), and Ray Moore (right).

    August 21, 2014 Roller Blade Parade! We can’t resist a good rolling party, and it seems as if seven cities in Belgium can’t either. For the last two years, the streets of Brussels, Nivelles, Leuven, Namen, Hasselt, Charleroi, and Tienen are transformed for a few days each during the four summer months to experience a…

    Where to Next for the Chariot Wars?

    One of Portland, Oregon’s most frequented sites for new graffiti and fresh street art is facing the bulldozer. The hollowed-out shell of a building that once housed electrical parts-supplier Taylor Electric at 3rd and Clay in the Southeast Industrial District, is considered a haven for streets artists. That’s in part because Portland has a particularly…

    Strange Sport of Wife Carrying – She Wears the Helmet

    We will admit up front that it’s a pretty strange thing, the not-so-ancient ‘sport’ of wife carrying. Supposedly a Finnish practice started in the late 1800’s by a band of roving thieves, ‘wife stealing’ or ‘wife carrying’ managed to survive through the ages and eventually morph from idiosyncratic cultural practice to national and then international…

    Fidlock No-Pinch Buckle: It’s Easy on Your Chiny Chin Chin
