Tern Bicycles is making sure that a new president being sworn in isn’t the only newsworthy thing happening on January 20th. Looking to take a stand for the planet, they are donating 100% of their profits on Inauguration day to the Natural Resources Defense Council through their NRDC Action Fund.

January 20 is a significant day – one that brings momentous changes to efforts to preserve our planet. We believe that keeping the planet a livable place is something that everybody can get behind. So we will be hosting a sales event on January 20 and donating 100% of profits to the Natural Resources Defense Council, an organization that is fighting to protect our planet’s resources. So if you’ve been thinking about getting a Tern bike or gear, do it on January 20!

To get behind both Tern and the NRDC, head on over to the U.S. web store for bikes and gear, or the international store for gear only, and make sure to do it this Friday!

Buy a Blu Dot x Handsome collaboration bike and they’ll send a bike to a developing country

Are you forgetting an important milestone? Neglecting to recognize a significant year for the love of your life? No, surely you remembered… 2017 is the 200th anniversary of the bicycle! As a little celebration, World Bicycle Relief is looking for partners and fundraisers to support their continued effort to provide their Buffalo Bikes to people in developing countries.

The best part is, you can help the cause by buying yourself a slick new commuter! Minneapolis-based furniture design house Blu Dot and Handsome Cycles have collaborated on a new stripped-down single speed city bike (seen above), which they’ve simply called the Blu Dot x Handsome Bike. For every one sold, a Buffalo Bike will be donated to a developing community in the buyer’s name. Check out the city slayer you can own, and the rural workhorse you can send someone below…

Friday Roundup: Cycling Odds & Ends

Photo from Andrew Cho GoFundMe page

We’re updating our Friday Roundup with rough news from GT Bikes. Former pro rider and GT Bicycles Digital Marketing Manager Andrew Cho suffered a serious spinal injury out of the blue when a blood vessel burst in his C3 and C4 vertebrae. According to the GoFundMe page, after feeling dizzy and having tingling in his neck and limbs while having dinner with friends, he went home where eventually the ruptured blood vessel constricted his spinal cord, paralyzing him from the neck down. Apparently, he’s starting to make some improvements, but still has a very long road ahead of him. To help offset the cost of medical treatment, loss of work, and other financial burdens, a GoFundMe page has been set up with a goal of raising $75k to start (keep in mind the GoFundMe is in CAD). If you’ve met Andrew, you know that he’s one of the nicest guys and while he’s keeping a positive attitude through all this, he could certainly use our help.

Friday Roundup: Cycling Odds & Ends

  • Ridley building the next generation of racers – Sure most bike companies are out supporting pro riders. But Ridley actually sponsors 10 youth development teams. Not only does their R&D division work with pros on cyclocross, road & track, but also with young talents. Take 19 year old Robbe Ghys, who’s been riding on Ridley for several years and showed how to be a badass (#BeTough in Ridley-speak) on the track by stepping up and racing with the elites at the six days of Gent. Another is U23 CX World Champ Eli Iserbyt, or 15 year old Luke Verburg who won the first 12 of 19 races on his X-night this season. Ridley-bikes.com

Friday Roundup: Cycling Odds & Ends

  • Uber admits its self-driving cars have trouble with bike lanes – While we’d love nothing more than being able to sit back and let the car do the driving while we post more goodness on Bikerumor, the challenges to full robotic chauffeurs remains. Uber’s self driving test fleet apparently has trouble recognizing bike lanes, but at least they’ve recognized the problem before bad things happened.
    Besides the threat of our robot overlords, there are always plenty of things to get us on the bike over the holidays and into the New Year…

Friday Roundup: Cycling Odds & Ends

  • Enjoy some post-ride meat & beer in NYC or LA at The Cannibal: Liquor House or Beer & Butcher – Started about 5 years ago by friends and cyclists Christian Pappanicholas and Cory Lane, The Cannibal was a beer-centric bar & butcher restaurant in New York City that grew out of the founders’ travels and riding in Belgium. Aside from the meat-eating reference, the name of course honors legend Eddy Merckx, who has inspired both over the years on & off the bike. They’ve since expanded to LA as well, and just opened a new cocktail bar next to the original Beer & Butcher. Each locale ties back to cyclists in its own way, and they even sponsors an amateur team. Pappanicholas and Lane also still aim to squeeze in rides before heading into the The Cannibal LA every day. They also sent us over a nice meaty recipe for a post-ride snack, as you might expect from a butcher shop. Check it out among other finds this week after the jump…

Mirra Forever: Custom Specialized Shiv Road 2 Recovery raffle to benefit CTE research

Every year Kona, HI hosts a ton of athletes for the annual Ironman World Championships. This year though, one of those athletes was there in spirit. Making good on a pact with the late Dave Mirra to qualify for Ironman Kona, Ben Bostrom rode and finished the grueling test of endurance on a custom Specialized S-Works Shiv painted to honor Mirra in memoriam. The final part of the plan was to sell the bike after the race and donate all of the proceeds to benefit CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) research.

After releasing a poignant video earlier this year, the time has come for the Shiv raffle which is being handled through Road 2 Recovery. If you haven’t already, check out the Remembering Dave Mirra clip after the break, and get more details on the raffle…
