There's a whole world of bike blogs out there in cyberspace and the people behind the blogs are connected, by the internet and their love of bikes. Not only do we have a bunch of SF bike blogging friends, but we've got bike friends worldwide. In Portland for the New Year, I ran into Patrick, the founder of Velo Couture. As I always do when I see an interesting bike, I rode up to him and checked out his ride, he checked out mine. We were cyberfriends meeting in the real world.
