Texting While Biking Is Dumb But Should It be Illegal and What About an Electric Bicycle?

Texting While Cycling is Stupid But Should it Be Illegal

CDC data shows that 9 Americans are killed by distracted drivers every day. One in four car crashes involve the use of cellphones. That’s over 340,000 “accidents” that could be prevented if people just put their phones and concentrate on the road. This could also translate to cyclists texting while cycling…

How Cycling is Helping Veterans – Wounded Warriors Bike Ride

How Cycling is Helping Veterans Find Peace at Home

For many members of our armed forces, returning home signifies the beginning of a different type of battle.

The laser focus that allows you to keep your tires tracking on the trail’s narrow tread. The playful challenge of picking your way through the rocks strewn on the trail. The hooting and hollering of buddies behind you. The sounds of nothing but nature. Hurtling downhill or huffing up. Most of the time, there’s something about a bike ride that feels healing, rejuve

The 2020 event kicked off Thursday and will take Wounded Warriors to dozens of other cities – a ride meant to be therapeutic both physically and emotionally…

Dozens of veterans took off from Miami Beach and ended at Marlins Park, where they were treated to lunch. One thing that was evident after the nine-mile ride as the veterans arrived is the event is a big deal for them.

“After I got injured, I wasn’t even sure I was going to be able to walk again,” said Patrick Nugent, a retired member of the United States Marine Corps. “So, riding a bike seemed like the scariest thing…

The Electra: A bike designed for the rest of us

It’s springtime. You’re starting to see them everywhere: the girl on the Electra pink Hawaii, the dude wheeling down the Crystal Pier on his Tiger Shark beach cruiser, the aging hipster-prof pulling up to the Pannikin coffeehouse on his retro-modern Italian Ticino.

It’s a revolution in casual wheels led by Benno Baenziger, 47, Electra Bicycle’s co-founder.

Headquartered in Vista, Electra is now one of the largest bike companies in California, selling more than 100,000 bikes a year. Baenziger is the inventor of the Townie, a bike, he likes to say, that is “for the rest of us, not just for Lance’s friends,” meaning racer Lance Armstrong, of course…

About Electra Bicycle Company

Electra was founded in 1993 by Benno Bänziger. A Swiss national, Bänziger grew up in the Swiss Embassy in West Berlin interested in California and action sports.

He founded Projekt Design in 1990, working for companies including K2 and Adidas.[3] Bänziger considered manufacturing snowboards or skateboards, but felt those markets were crowded with competitors and seemed a poor bet for a beginning manufacturer. He turned his attention to bicycles…
