BYOB- bring your own bike

Yo, MOM.

this place looks so rad. you know how i love my spin class? this place gives you a spin class on your own bike with the addition of nerdy technology.

once there you hook your bike up to "CompuTrainer" its a system with thousands of real racecourse programs, so you get to try out what a charity ride or an ironman bike ride feels like complete with hills, bumps and turns.

I can not waitttt to tryyyyy.

"CompuTrainer™ is an amazing training system that tracks endurance, speed, heart rate and power all while you ride through a virtual terrain displayed on 52-inch Plasma screen monitors.Your own bicycle is required (road bike recommended). We can also provide bicycle storage and discounted bicycle concierge service if you need a tune-up or upgrade. "

Here's some more appetizing information:

mom i once wanted to live in a recycled shipping container

Brooklyn, New York, is getting a brand new market. But this one is much more than the standard collection of farmers' stands.

The new Dekalb Market in downtown Brooklyn will be built out of recycled shipping containers and other repurposed materials. Artists, chefs, and entrepreneurs will convert the salvaged containers into venues for art, eating, and enterprise. The idea is to make a modular market that can bring more than just consumerism to the neighborhood and in the process revitalize the currently vacant space.

And you can help design it. Today, Urban Space announced the Not Just a Container contest. They're offering free rent for six months to the most creative and innovative idea for one of the 160-square-foot shipping containers. You could envision a farm structure, store, art installation, even a work-sell space. Musicians, consider making an intimate venue in a box. Athletes, think up some activities for the local kids and you could have a start-up on your hands. It's all fair game.

Entries will be judged on design quality, sustainability, community impact, and entrepreneurship. Bonus: GOOD is a media partner for the competition and helping judge the entries. To find out more, click here.
