Andrew Dickey – Shades of Danny MacAskill

Andrew Dickey tears up the streets of Melbourne in this street trials video. He’ll remind you of Danny MacAskill, but the videography isn’t as tight, and, well, he’s just not Danny MacAskill. There are a couple points, riding off a parking garage, and hopping from tiny barrier to tiny barrier, where it feels good, though.

New weather app for bike riders

If the folks developing the Dark Sky weather prediction app have their way, you’ll no longer have the ability to misjudge the weather and get caught in a storm when you’re riding your bike to work last Thursday, the Tuesday before, and pretty much every time it rains I get stuck in a storm, and I’m fucking sick of it. Sorry. Anyway, how do they do it? Who knows! What’s the catch?

Well, the catch is that it only works over a short period of time: a half hour to an hour in the future. But, as it turns out, this timespan is crucially important. Our lives are filled with short-term outdoor activities: Travelling to and from work, walking the dog, lunch with friends, outdoor sports, etc.
