Friday Roundup – Bicycle Bits & Pieces

  • I’ve been fascinated with the Land’s End to John O’Groats tour through Britain since I read George Mahood’s Free Country. Here’s your chance to ride a similar route, albeit, fully supported. The 960 mile, 9 day Deloitte Ride Across Britain runs through June 8-16th. Check out the video above for some inspiration.
  • For every Polar Bottle sold in their Benefit Series, $5 will be donated to the cause printed on the bottle. They are currently working on a Red Cross bottle, but their existing Benefit bottles represent causes worthy of our support.
  • The Hornit, a 140 decibel bike horn (MSRP $44.99), is now available for distribution in the US.
  • Win a BMC Gran Fondo with SRAM Red courtesy of Peloton Magazine and BMC. Enter to win one of four ways.
  • Predator makes carbon bicycles and components in Santa Monica, CA. They also offer carbon bike repair.
  • Win a Chrome rain jacket, a men’s Storm Cobra or women’s Storm Pasha, enter now!
  • Bike Friday is recalling 3,800 folding tikit bikes due to possible stem failure. More info here.

What a fantastic looking race through Britain! We want to do it next year! Thanks for the post. And thanks for the shout out to Polar Bottle. We really appreciate it. Keep up the awesome work.

That ride across Britain has just moved to the top of my bucket list.
