Today's Monday Roundup is sponsored by Portland real estate broker Leigh Perretta. In the spirit of Valentine's Day, Leigh wants to show prospective home buyers a "love nest" in Linnton between the St. Johns bridge and Sauvie Island with river and mountain views that's "just minutes from the City’s best cycling." Contact Leigh via email for a private showing.
And now, here's the bike news from around the world that caught our eyes this week:
Bragdon in Gotham: Four years after he fled to New York, calling Portland complacent and analysis-obsessed, former Metro President David Bragdon is saying nuanced things about both his cities — and about the "mysterious blend of arrogance and humility" that makes great leaders. Highly recommended. (Including the forelock-themed graphic.)
Hands-free bike navigation: CycleNav, which attaches to your handlebars, is "the first navigation device that, when connected to a smart phone via Bluetooth, provides audio commands and visual light indicators to direct riders to their desired destination." $60.
