Bike rodeo

Last Saturday, five MIT cyclists (well, four cyclists + one alumna) headed to South Boston to volunteer at a kid’s bike rodeo. The event was designed to teach kids and parents about bike safety, handling, mechanical tips, proper helmet-wearing, and how to steal the wheel of a good lead-out train (joke).

It was organized by our fearless and incredibly hard-working coach, Nicole Freedman, who happens also to be the City of Boston’s bike tsarina. Everybody had a good time, and I am pretty sure I met one 5-year-old  named Benjamin who will win the national cyclocross championship in…2022. Stay tuned, I suppose.

Anyway, pictures of the event are up on our Flickr page (which you can also preview to your right).

MIT Cycling—now on Flickr!

Witness the fitness—literally and figuratively: the MIT cycling team now has its own Flickr photostream. In terms of social-media-hipness, we are still sucking the wheel of the White House.

Already it has photos by Kenny Cheung, Nader Shaar, Nick Loomis, and Matt Blackburn.

UPDATED 5/5: As you can (hopefully) see, thanks to the FlickrRSS plugin, the latest six photos from the team’s photostream now appear at the top right of the blog.
