With bicycle culture and craft in ascendance, bike fever has spread past the artisanal frame builders and fixie fanatics to infest the every man. To wit: the fall launch of the Sandwichbike (anticipated by us earlier this year) by Bastens Leijh’s Dutch design studio, Bleijh Industrial. Leijh set out to prove that there are legitimate new ways to approach bicycle design and put it in the hands of the consumer.
I am Doug Covey and this is my personal blog. My daily musings typically include a photo, quote, song and occasional video. I grew up in Arizona, migrated to cooler climates throughout the West and fortunate enough to call Boise, Idaho home with my wife, three children, too many bikes, freeheel skis and a 1912 upright piano. I work at Blueprint Education, a non-profit doing some cool things for kids throughout the world.
