A recap of the Red Hook Crit origins and this year’s wet and chaotic race in March.
We tapped Slow Roll Detroit for our printed piece on Fun Rides in the last issue of Urban Velo. They created this promo piece to give a feel of the Slow Roll rides, where no one is dropped, traffic rules are followed, and an overall good time is had. The next ride goes down on Monday the 8th.
Still in the fund seeking stages, the San Francisco Yellow Bike Project is trying to get their project off the ground. I’m quite interested to see how this develops as traditional yellow bike projects have a history of failure. This structure, however, seems to involve more than putting free bikes into the public, with maintenance classes, safety demonstrations, Build a Bike workshops and more.
Earlier in the week we posted an uncut interview with Mikale Colville-Anderson on the ideas of Copenhagenize. This video contains excerpts from the interview as a new series by the people at WeLoveCycling who are showcasing bike friendly cities around the world. Then content for Copenhagen is up now and more cities are soon to follow.
“…It was a pleasure to talk with famous urban mobility expert Mikael Colville-Andersen. Or with Morten Kabell, head of Copenhagen’s Technical and Environmental Administration. And we’re sure you will love the wizards from bike repair shops or the beautiful lady who ferries sperm samples to fertility clinics around Copenhagen on a sperm-shaped cargo-bike.
For a number of days we researched whether Copenhagen really is paradise on Earth for cyclists. You can find the answer in our report.
Don’t you hate it when motorized vehicles use the bike lane? I mean, hate hate hate it?! Don’t you wanna ride up next to them and kick em over. Don’t you get so enraged you wanna..wait….oh, never mind.
BikeTrails is a ride diary by STOPNOWHERE, but instead of just being a traditional log, it’s also a way to engage with a larger BikeTrails community online, challenging each other in a Strava-like way, but with a more analog approach.
BikeTrails can be purchased for approximately $26 here.
