The S+ARCKBIKE helmet by Philippe Starck looks SO good I’d wear it to bed!

Plus it has a cork liner that offers excellent impact energy management and is harvested sustainably in Portugal without damaging the trees. Cork is also naturally water-resistant and offers significant anti-microbial properties. The shell of the helmet is formed in lightweight aluminum that can be easily recycled at the end of the helmet’s lifespan.

The Oregon Mainfest, “An independent innovation platform partnering high-level design firms and American bicycle craftsmen to develop the Ultimate Urban Utility Bike”

The competition pits design firm from 5 different cities against each other. I love how each bike concentrates on a particular feature expressing the values of each city in the form of a bike. The Seattle entry is my favorite, “The Denny bike is about returning the rider, the reason we all fell in love with bikes in the first place.” I think that’s the key to getting people back into to bikes, to remind them how bloody AWESOME it is to ride one!!

To celebrate the one year anniversary of the S&S blog, I visited the Ducati Museum in Bologna, Italy. You could not take a bad photo in that place if you tried. It was quiet, peaceful and humbling. Just as a place of worship should be
