We want to congratulate Richmonder, Jason Sullivan, a graphic designer for winning the Nature’s Path Citizen folding bike. Keep an eye out for Jason as he zips around town.
Jason, who happens to be a bike advocate says, “Bike-riding is contagious, so the best thing that anyone can do to promote cycling in Richmond (or any city) is just to ride. You don’t need spandex or any fancy equipment, all you need is a bike, and you’re ready to go! The more people we have out there riding in regular clothes running errands, riding to the grocery store, the pharmacy, commuting to work, etc., then the more ubiquitous bikes will be, motorist and lawmakers can no longer ignore us, streets will become safer, and infrastructure will be improved.”
In terms of safety and functionality, this bag tops all. If the handlebar controller were a little bit smaller, it would be even better. The SEIL Bag, designed by Lee Myung Su design labwon the 2010 Red Dot Design Award and now makes cyclist on the streets even more noticeable!
“When a rider using hand-signal, the rider is riding bicycle with one hand. It can lead an accident. But this product provides safer and simpler control for bicycle riders. Seil Bag is designed to show left and right turn signal of a bicycle rider. Simply, controlling the detachable wireless controller enables various signals such as directional signals, emergency signal. “
