A couple weeks ago, I attended a Sony launch in San Diego, and took these frames of a LED, lit-up pedicab. It’s a remarkable gif because it was shot in such low light with a 50mm f/1.4, and the mirrorless camera continued to track the subject in focus. Read about the launch on Medium Bicycles and Shutterbug.
Bike Hugger® is bike culture blogged. As a group blog, with different voices, we cover diverse topics, but the bike centers us. You won’t find a marketing box to put us in or a label to slap onto what we do. Much of it is in the moment and we try to do interesting, epic stuff.
We also believe the bike is a connector with web designers, developers, and creative professionals. That’s why you’ll find us at events like SXSW with our Mobile Socials
For the past 8 years we’ve built an audience on our blog and in social channels, like Twitter, G+, Instagram, Flickr, Facebook, and Tumblr(s). We publish photos on Flickr, videos on YouTube, and podcasts on iTunes.
Each month in our magazine we cover diverse topics in longform with the bike centering us. We believe it's a connector and the context for what we write about. We chase interesting, epic stuff and share our opinions about what we've ridden and where. Subscription revenues directly support the writing, editing, and production of our Magazine. It’s ad free and published monthly on iTunes and the Web.
A Big Tip Jar
Tugboat Yards is a platform for publishers to get support directly from readers for ad-free content and we use it like a big tip jar. It helps us pay our mechanics, editors, and photographers, or underwrite a whole issue if you're a big tipper.
