“The Man Who Lived On His Bike.”

February 6th, 2012

For those of you who haven’t seen this beautiful video by Guillaume Blanchet we thought that you might like to start your week off right, by viewing this fine treat of a film.  So instead of our traditional Monday Lane Love, we hope that you all enjoyed your Super Bowl weekend and that this film brings a smile to your face as your new week begins!

Have a lane that you love? Send us a photo! You can post it to our Facebook page, shoot us an email at blog[at]ospreypacks[dot]com or upload to our Flickr group and we might just feature it here on our weekly photo feature, Lane Love.

Lane Love: London

January 2nd, 2012

How many bicycles park in the space of one car? About 10, as illustrated by this awesome bike rack in London. The rack, designed by Cyclehoop, a firm of award-winning designers and architects who specialise in producing innovative indoor and outdoor cycle parking solutions.

via Treehugger:

The “car” bike port is made out of steel and anchored into the ground with bolts so it is good and sturdy. At the same time, it is a flat pack design, so that it is simple to transport and set up at events. It can also include a bike pump and be used for branding…

The stand is an ironic take with a serious message. Cars cause pollution and congestion, and their parking spaces could be dedicated to bikes, not cars.

Ditch Your Car: I Feel Good Today

October 26th, 2011

We loved this photo that the Adventure Journal posted last week. The message on the wall of the Erste Liebe (“first love”) bar in Hamburg, Germany is a perfect start to this lovely day. Now, get on your bike and feel good today!

Every Wednesday on Ditch Your Car we’ll be bringing you just another reason to spend more time on two wheels. Be it a photo, a statistic or an inspirational video, we want to keep reminding you about why riding is great!

Ditch Your Car: Ride With No Hands!

October 19th, 2011

We love riding our bikes, and sometimes we like to get a little adventurous… like riding with no hands. So when we stumbled across this awesome video over at Copenhagenize, we had to post it. How to ride your bike with no hands and look awesome while doing it. Watch. And please be careful if you try this at home…

Tracy Moseley Captures The Spirit of Roc D’Azur

October 13th, 2011

I have heard about Roc D’Azur for many, many years, but never been able to take part, so I really did not know what to expect — all I knew was that it finished at the beach and that in itself was a good enough reason to go!

Ride For Your Life: Barcelona Study Shows Bike Sharing Saves More Than Gas

September 7th, 2011

In the U.S., cities like Washington D.C., Minneapolis and Boulder have received national attention for their bike share programs. It seems like the movement is gaining momentum as the positive effects pop up: reduced carbon emissions, money saved and increased physical activity for commuters. Just yesterday, our athlete Nitish Nag posted about how cycling can protect you from heart disease and today we stumbled across a study in Barcelona shows that their bike sharing program is actually saving lives. Check it out.

Race Update: Overcoming Challenges at Paris-Brest-Paris

August 26th, 2011

via Michael Henderson in Paris:

[The race] turned into an epic, which I shall detail in the next day or two. It started perfectly with the first day going as planned. What was not in the plan was getting no sleep the first night and catching cold at the same time… I thought I had recovered on the morning of day 3. That was not the case, it caught back up to me that evening. I stayed an extra unplanned night at the last control point before riding in [yesterday] morning in 78 hours and some change.

I’m a little upset at not riding the fastest I could, but I’m very excited to have finished despite the obstacles. Finding ways to overcome the problems along the way is what randonneuring is all about, and I did that in spades. Hope to have some time to begin recounting the details tomorrow…

Congratulations Michael!

Michael Henderson is the CFO at Osprey Packs HQ in Cortez, Colorado. Stay tuned… we’ll be posting updates from his race and recap when he comes home!
