Summer Venture Rides June 09 2014, 0 Comments

Venture Expeditions creates charity rides to raise both awareness and money for important causes.  This summer their cyclists will be riding with greater safety and having even more fun since they'll be wearing Blox while riding to benefit the International Justice Mission and Love Does.  Wind-Blox is all about partnering to build redemptive joy (thank you Storyline and Donald Miller!) and so very excited to find a soul-first group to work with like Venture


Want to be happier? Commute by bike! June 02 2014, 0 Comments

Portland State University (the perfect place to study bike commuting!)has a recent transportation study that shows people who commute by bike have a happier commute than any other mode.  Car centered cities, suburban living and solo commuting in cars seems to have lowered our communal joy quotient.  Researcher, Nohad A. Toulan states, "Commuting to work by active modes increases commute well-being, even when controlling for distance, income, and other factors."

That's central to our mission at Wind-Blox...join us to get away from your dull commute and participate in fun healthy transport and enjoy the ride without wind noise! 

Enjoy the ride!

Rewarding Bike Safety May 29 2014, 0 Comments

Rewarding positive behavior is a great parenting technique, Jean Julson in Osseo Wisconsin, has taken this to the streets.  She offered treats to kids wearing bike helmets and was so successful that the local police department and some nearby businesses have joined her.  Now the young people of Osseo have more than reminders to be safe--they've got reinforcement.

Here's a fit method: 2x2x2

With the helmet on your head, the very edge or rim of your helmet when you look up past your eyebrows.

      2 finger widths above your eyebrow.

The straps on the side of the helmet by the ears should meet and form a “V” right under each ear lobe.

      To check, form a “V” with 2 fingers around the ear.

Once the side straps are adjusted in a “V” buckle them. The straps should be snug but not too tight.

       Adjust until you can put no more than 2 fingers between the strap and your chin.
