Keeping My Ears Warm

Posted in Design, My Rambles by kmtom on September 21, 2010

I just returned from a quick bike ride. Being that it’s turning to fall, I bundled up a bit and added a sweatshirt to my usual biking attire. Well about halfway into my ride my ears were burning from being so cold. I wondered if there was a solution. Could I cover my ears without hindering my safety?

After a quick Google search, I came across the Bike Helmet Earmuffs which actually affix to the chin strap.

Now, I either need to learn to knit or find someone to make them for me. In case you knit, I’m allergic to wool 😉

Idling at the Light

Posted in Design by kmtom on July 13, 2010

Bikers are everywhere these days! In Denmark they’ve installed these railings at stoplights for bikers who are waiting at the lights. It even works great for people clipped in who might not want to unclip at a light, they can just grab onto the handrail! Great design for a problem! Speaking of the problem, the article at Copenhagenize.com highlights some examples of creative ways the bikers used to employ to keep from falling over.
