Cycling Links for July 26

[Critical Mass Collision – Checksum Arcanius](
[![](]( Cyclist blogger’s firsthand account of the recent Seattle Critical Mass’s violent run-in with a car that intentionally drove into a few cylists attempting to block it. I’m not a fan of Critical Mass because it promotes disregard for the rules of the road and invites car vs cyclist confrontations like this.
[First Look: Velorbis Churchill Balloon – Commute by Bike](
[![](]( Quality German built Danish style commuter bike. I love the look and it sounds like a lot of fun to ride.
[Alpine Randonneur: Cascade 1200](
[![](]( Lothar Hennighausen’s 2008 Cascade 1200 report. Mountain climbs and Eastern Washington heat make for a challenging combination.
