YIKES! Safetybike update 1/18/08: The Safetybike video will be featured this coming weekend on an CNN show called “News To Me” that runs on Saturday and Sunday at 12:30 and 5:30. Mark and Chris have put together a Safetybike website for inspiration.

1/10/08 SAFETYBIKE UPDATE: Crazy! The Safetybike video has caught on in a big way. In the last month it has gone from several thousand views to well over 1.1 million. If you Google “Safetybike”, page after page of links come up.

He’s not quite sure what 1.1 million views means to his own life, except that he and Chris Huggins are thinking about putting the actual Safetybike–resting against Mark’s parents’ garage for the last couple of years–up on eBay.
