In the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, a car driver took out two cyclists in a classic dooring incident. I was just thinking the other day how lucky I am never to have gotten doored. Then I almost got doored twice in three days… (Thanks to MyBallard.com)

In Ottawa, a minivan took out 5 cyclists in a classic hit and run. They got the vehicle, they got the driver, let’s hope they get some justice. (Thanks to DrunkCyclist.com)

It happens to the best of us, even the winningest World Cup rider ever. Peaty takes a dive.

PinkBike has the full rundown on the Mountain Bike Nationals at Sol Vista bike park in Colorado this past weekend.

I’ve consistently said that this year’s Leadville 100 is the Lance Armstrong race to watch for 2009 (him having no chance in the Giro and Tour). With all those mountain stages under his belt, Lance has to be considered the favorite. Turns out, though, that the Alps aren’t just for the skinny tire set. Dave Wiens, who kicked Lance’s sorry ass all the way back to Austin last year, is riding the TransAlp challenge, the toughest mountain bike stage race in the world. Go Dave! (Thanks to BikeRumor.com.)

WIRED: 5 iPhone apps to replace bike hardware. Tell me about it. I got the new 3GS and now have 2 cell phones, 3 voice recorders, 2 camcorders, 3 cameras, a GPS system and a bunch of notepads to get rid of. Any reasonable offer considered.

Add to the calendar: Kranked’s new movie, “Revolve,” gets a show on the big screen a week from Thursday, July 30, at the North Bend Theater, with proceeds going to a great cause: Mountain biking access! See ya there…

Cyclelicio.us is doing a Daily Roundup too!

  1. Hey Paul, the website is looking good; nice story / review of the Pivot; I know it’s got to be a good bike if it gets raves from you. Nice bit on DZ and Adam; he does do nice work. However, at the end of the day, I envy Darin and his great escape to CA. I would be a very happy camper if I figure a way to relocate to CA; maybe you could add a CAN/AM personal page to the site:>). Take care, talk with you later.
