Whether you’re cycling through Europe or training for the next Tour de Force this little tool will come in handy. We’ve all seen Swiss Army knives before, but this Swiss Army Bike Tool by Victorinox is packed full of tools needed to fix your bike in a pinch.

 

It weighs in at 3.5 ounces and is small enough to fit in your pocket, so it won’t take up room in your pack or on your bike. The Bike Tool is equipped with five tools in all: an L-wrench, a tire lever, a stainless steel bit adapter, eight bits for common screws and an impact-proof plastic holder for the bits.

 

Rather than fold out like a Swiss Army Knife, the Bike Tool actually disassembles easily to give you access to all of the parts. When put together the edges are rounded so you don’t have to worry about anything poking you in the side while you’re riding along.

 

It doesn’t come with some of the cool perks of a regular Swiss Army product, like an emergency corkscrew — which always comes in handy – but it does exactly what it’s designed for fairly well. At a price of $49.50 you might find it a little steep, but it’s put together well enough to justify the price.

Videogame Releases to Watch for in 2019

Anyone who follows or plays videogames will tell you 2018 was one of the best years the medium has ever seen. Epic stories spanning all kinds of gameplay, narrative styles and tone made for a truly impressive year. This year has a few heavy hitters coming as well.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

Brazil Waives Visa Requirements

Brazil recently waived its visa requirements for several different countries, and the results have been spectacular. Now, Brazil allows visa-free entry for citizens of the United States, Canada, Australia and Japan, for travel starting June 17.

Relive the Golden Age of Flying With The Pan Am Experience

Most of us are too young to remember the days when flying was an elaborate and luxurious event. Nowadays planes are cramped, seats are uncomfortable and meals leave plenty to be desired.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

LGBTQ+: Saba, Caribbean Netherlands

Saba Island was the first Caribbean island to legalize same-sex marriage back in 2012. While the tiny Dutch territory is extremely welcoming of the LGBTQ+ community, it’s not exactly a hotbed of gay activity. At only five square miles, there isn’t much room for gay bars and glam.
