The Philadelphia Bike Expo

Fifo Cycle is going to be in Philly this October 30th & 31st for what should be an amazing weekend of all things bicycle. There's a full schedule of lectures and workshops as well as a fashion show, a swap meet and a Halloween party. Come stop by my booth if you're in the area...I'll have lot's of new hats and a preview of my Spring 2011 collection.

Fall Hat #001

Last winter I ran completely out of hats right before Christmas. This year I want to make sure nobody sheds tears so I'm making lots more. This is the first of the series... It's The Janus so it's reversible and I found some really soft bright wool for it. Let me know what you think!

Bike Shorts

Last Sunday my friends Ken and Sarah hosted their Bike Short Film Series at The Old Stone House in Park Slope, Brooklyn. There was a fantastic array of movies including a couple of really strange ones and it was hard to land on the winner. So hard that it became a tie between My Commuted Commute by Rachel Brown and Jase's Bike by Taliah Lempert. See Rachel's movie below.

Fifo Hats stir up Fashion Week!

A bike polo friend of mine showed up at Number Lab the other day to play for the opening of their first New York Fashion Week show and was wearing one of the Fifo Cycle NYC Bike Polo hats. The designer liked them so much that he asked for more for the show. I'd like to thank Factory PR for getting the hats in there and Tommy, Johnny and Patrick for looking so good in them! See more on Esquire.

Bikes on the Street

Whenever I'm in the city running errands I keep an eye out for striking bicycles and I'm never disappointed. This piece of work is in the window of the Camper store on Prince street. It looks like it works, even if it would be heavy to ride.

Before it get's cold....

September is always a mad dash to get the last of the summer fun in before the weather changes. Governor's Island is cheap ($4 - free on Weekends) on the ferry from Pier 6 in Brooklyn, there are no cars and you can rent bikes for free on Fridays. There's a mini-golf course designed by New York artists and a sculpture garden and there are plenty of quiet picnic spots under big shady trees around the Island. Loved it!
