Yes you read the title correctly, Apple recently filed a patent for a Smart Bike. Apparently, the Apple Smart Bike will allow cyclists to communicate electronically with one and other, while sharing a multitude of items like speed, distance, time, altitude, include, decline, power, heart rate, cadence, derailleur settings and much more.

In order to use the the Apple Smart Bike, you must have a iPhone or iPod Touch. This project resembles that of the Nike + iPod, where you had to purchase certain sneakers plus a app to use.

In the patent, Apple says that a armband is a possibility, or a screen on the handlebars. We must say, the patent is lengthy, and leaves a lot of room for what is to come from Apple, but one thing is for sure, they covered every corner possible for anyone to copy or replicate.

We at Bike Reviews work late into the night, and as you can assume we get very tired. Luckily for us we had a chance to review the Scallywags Coffee Brake Mug plus some Rwanda Rwabisindu Bourbon Coffee provided by Scallywags on one of those nights.

The Scallywags Coffee brake mug is solid, using a double walled insulated stainless steel mug so you can keep your coffee hot for the late nights/early mourning’s. The 14 ounce mug is a nice size for any coffee enthusiast, or someone needing a jump start, and the Rwanda Rwabisindu Bourbon tasted well (although I am not a coffee drinker, but I was fond of the taste).

One thing is for sure, this mug will catch a lot of attention! This is due to the brake lever for a handle, and this is not one of those plastic handles, but made of stainless steel….
