So there’s basically two forces in my life that make me want to be a better, more awesome biker. The first is my friend Robby, in Chicago. He’s so rad, he’s all like “I mastered the cool bike riding, and now I’m going to try out BMX’ing.” He makes anything he does awesome. Having a rad ‘stache doesn’t hurt, as well as being an awesome part of Rapid Transit in Chicago. I guess FuelTV stopped by the BMX spot in ChiTown, so keep a look out for the boys.

Voila - 'Stache BMX

In other awesome boys who ride bikes news, looks like ESPN finally realized Bike Polo is a sport. Link courtesy of my friend Brian in ChiTown, who also makes me want to be a more awesome biker. Its awesome cause it means more money will go into the Bike Polo Tournaments around the world, through sponsors, and to the guys and GIRLS who sacrifice their bodies for the sport. (And what fine looking bodies they are might I add!) This means it will be harder to get a good view of the action from the fence for me!

Check out my favorite site to stalk this sport.. League of Bike Polo, to find out where to throw down around you.

I was passed this awesome collection of photos by my friend J-Town in Chicago. (Yes, that is most definitely her real name.)

These were take at the World Naked Bike Ride, Chicago throw down. Everyone should already know that Chicago has one of the largest (and best) bike cultures in the United States. I would say the world, but the U.S. unfortunately has little on European bike culture. I swear the Germans and Dutch give birth on bikes.

If that doesn’t make you want to get on a bike, no naked men ever will.
