BikeSD Officially Launches as a City-Based Bike Advocacy Group on 9/27


Join us as we officially launch as a city-based advocacy group on 9/27. Here is the RSVP page on Facebook
BikeSD Launch Party Poster designed by Jeff Motch, co-owner of Blind Lady Ale House.
Our special guest of honor is Councilmember David Alvarez who regularly rides to work. He will talk about you can become more involved and engaged as a citizen. Transforming San Diego into the world’s best city for bicycling is going to take a lot of work. As an elected representative, we thought the Councilmember could best talk about how city government functions from his perspective and how he relies on citizen input in order to make decisions. Transforming San Diego is going to take the collected effort of residents, advocates and elected officials and September 27th will mark the change where we all work together to make our vision of transforming San Diego into the world’s best city for bicycling, a reality.
We’ve also invited Michael Wolfgang Bauch, a filmmaker, who made the movie Riding Bikes with the Dutch to join us. The Netherlands is currently one of the most bike friendly regions in the world. If we’re going to knock the Dutch out of the top spot, we need to visualize what that bike friendly future looks like and Bauch has agreed to provide us with those visuals. The missing component is obviously the athletic and mountain biking and other off-road populations – a void the San Diego can easily filled given our existing assets of weather and terrain. Bauch will have copies of his movie for sale at Blind Lady Ale House. Below is a trailer of the movie,
The event starts at 5pm. There will be plenty of time to eat, drink, mingle, learn, listen and discuss. We all look forward to seeing you on the 27th at Blind Lady Ale House.

Tour de Fat 2012 San Diego


Hold on tight, San Diego, we’re headed back for another round! New Belgium Brewing’s cycling circus, Tour de Fat, is coming to town for one day on Saturday, September 29 at Golden Hill Park. Tour de Fat rookies and veterans alike are encouraged to grab a bike and join us for a whimsical day of entertainment and two-wheeled revelry, all while raising money for San Diego County Bicycle Coalition and San Diego Mountain Bike Association.
For those who haven’t experienced Tour de Fat, it is a thrilling rite of passage that includes an unparalleled costumed bicycle parade, New Belgium beer, eccentric entertainment, local food, unusual bike contests and much more.
The free event, which raises money for local nonprofits through beer and merchandise purchases, just exceeded the $2 million mark for total funds raised since its inception 13 years ago. Last year’s San Diego Tour de Fat festival raised nearly $21,250 and had about 3,000 attendees.
The Bike Parade begins at 11 am from Golden Hill Park, but be there early to register.

New Fat Sand Bikes are coming to Southern California

The Fat Sand Bike Story

TommiSea bicycles was founded in 2008 By Tommi Coghill (Tommi “C”…get it?) after Tommi an avid rider, and beach-goer (who also coincidentally has a degree in Physics) decided to crash together his two favorite loves. The first product line he developed was a special line of carts and accessories designed to help him carry his gear - surfboards, coolers, fishing poles – virtually anything the beach enthusiast needs to fully enjoy the sun, surf and sand – to the beach. And while his product line met with great success with thousands of beach lovers around the world, he felt something was missing. How about a way to transport your gear without having to walk and push or pull it? Wouldn’t it be great to have a special bicycle that you could ride on the beach AND carry your gear behind you in one of his specialized carts? But nothing existed in the market except standard issue mountain bikes which did not get the job done. So with that came the idea for a new line of bicycles unlike anything anyone else had ever seen before.

In addition, Tommi, who lived in Virginia Beach, who wanted to visit his friends who lived up and down an 8 mile stretch of beach, and enjoy the scenic trip down to North Carolina on the beach (and cars were not allowed on the beach) concluded the best way to do this was on a bicycle. Doing the trip on foot took all day and by car it took hours due to tourists and traffic. But if he only had a bicycle to do the quick, not to mention very scenic and enjoyable beach ride, he could do it in less than an hour. He concluded that had to make a bike that was up to the task.

Because Tommi did not have a previous career in the bicycle industry, he was able to design what is known today as the “Fat Sand Bike” without any pre-dispositions as to how things were supposed to be done. Like for starters, putting super wide, mammoth 26” x 4” wheels and tires that virtually “float” on the sand – even soft sand – without energy wasting spinning of your wheels (literally!). Since the wheels dictated a fairly large footprint, the frame and fork needed to be strong but light. And the bikes had to have multi-speed options to make it easy to ride in just about any conditions. Top it all off with sealed and stainless steel components to combat the salt water and air, and you have a line of bikes that is bullet-proof and extremely fun and easy to ride.

And while they were designed for the sand, Fat Sand Bikes are equally at home in virtually any terrain – they can go, and perform anywhere you want to go. Sand. Snow. Trail. Street. In fact, besides making it easy to navigate through all sorts of rough terrain, Fat Sand Bikes are probably the most comfortable and efficient commuter or street bike you will ever ride. The long wheelbase and wide tires provide an extremely stable platform.

So once Tommi had prototyped and thoroughly tested his new concept, he painstakingly worked to find the best partners in the industry to produce the bike to his stringent quality standards. And because many of the components were unique to the Fat Sand Bike, they have been patented and special tooling and processes, that were new to the bike industry, have been created. Today, many of the unique features and components are in the process of being introduced into other cutting-edge products soon to be introduced by TommiSea.

So what does all this mean? The net result, is what we like to call the most versatile bike you will ever own – the Fat Sand Bike. And yes, go ahead and get sand in places it normally isn’t supposed to go – you can wash both the bike and yourself off later.

Enjoy all Mother Nature has to offer on a Fat Sand Bike! Tommi “C”
