718 Cyclery

In Brooklyn, NY sits an incredible bicycle shop called the 718. It was founded as a resource to bring a bit of craftsmanship and collaboration into the community’s growing bike culture.

As we continuously develop a cleaner future, alternative forms of transportation will gain more and more attention.  Bicycles, as primitive a technology as they are, will play an increasingly integral role in the shaping of our 21st century communities.  Truth is though, not everyone digs on the bikes.  Many feel they are a step backwards...

Minnesota Nice, Ride

If you’re dialed into the transit scene here in America, you’d probably know that Minneapolis is where it’s at for bikers.  Bicycling magazine recently named the City of Lakes the #1 bike-friendly city in the country, dethroning the strong bike scene in Portland, Oregon.  Portland still maintains the highest percentage of commuters that ride, but...

Forty years ago today, 20 million Americans took to the streets. They were marching for the first ever Earth day… many had anger and defiance over the level of degradation and pollution that surrounded them.  Others rallied in more of an optimistic spirit, celebrating the beauty and wonder of their home planet… Certainly a lot...

Check Your H2O Print

It’s all about the H2O my friends… the clear wet stuff is where it’s at… so yeah, two-thirds of the planet is covered in water, but many of us don’t recognize that potable, usable water is in short supply.  Less than one half of a single percent of the world’s H2O is accessible for human...
