Local NAHBS winner- Bilenky Cycles

(photo from NAHBS website)

Bilenky Cycles won "Best Lugged Frame" at the North American Handbuilt Bicycle Show over the weekend. Sure that picture above does not show the lugs or anything, just a little group shot, but I am very happy that Simon is building my custom bicycle for Paris-Brest-Paris, with custom handcut polished stainless lugs.

Pittsburgh Dirty Dozen

From the website-
"I wanted to showcase the hills."
January 26, 2011

It's a one-day bicycle ride around Pittsburgh. It covers 13 very steep hills. It's a test of strength, endurance, biking skills and human perseverence. It's called the DIRTY DOZEN. It was started in 1983 by Danny Chew, his brother and some of their friends. It's now a Pittsburgh tradition and an extraordinary celebration of our city's terrain!"

bike path=fail

So two weeks after the major snow fall, they still have not cleared the Valley Forge Bike Path. Hopefully by the spring?
