Bike Luggage Charges For Air Travel

From Yellow Jersey Cycle Insurance for summer trips Smile

Bike luggage charges can be a pain. Every airline seems to handle bicycles in a completely different way, and charge completely different premiums to carry your bike box.

IKEA Bikes: Sladda

Starting in February 2017, you’ll be able to pick up IKEA’s new Sladda bike in stores across the US. Or, if you just can’t wait, you can order it now on IKEA’s US website, starting at $399.

I know a lot of folks are already complaining that it won’t be a “real” bike.  Seriously, with a 10 year warranty on the belt drive, with disc brake and a rear coaster brake?  With a $25 Front Rack, a $129 Trailer, and a $30 Bike Bag (that converts to a backpack)?

This was designed with a carry handle on the frame and appears to include lights and a bell.  A BELL!  Standard. 

I think I have just found my new commuter bike.

I volunteered at the 21st annual Holiday Bike Drive!

Thanks to everyone’s hard work and enthusiasm, 411 kids picked their first bike, received a perfectly fitted helmet, and rode away with a great introduction as to what a bike can bring to their lives.

The stats:

416 = Kids registered

411 = Bikes in the hands of kids

240 = Total volunteers

265 = Total volunteer shifts

1163.5 = Volunteer hours for the week
