San Fran Yellow Bike Project


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.

Bike Friendly Cities – Video Series

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.

Idaho to Oregon: The Final Days

IDAHO TO OREGON : THE FINAL DAYS from Kate Dougherty on Vimeo.

Ben Towill and friends rode from Colorado to Oregon, documenting the trip along the way. I’m digging the 70s surf movie feel of their videos, this final piece being the last leg of the trip, concentrating more on the details of riding rather than the journey itself. Towill explains the reason behind this ride along parts of the TransAmerican Bike Trail,

I am riding for a New York charity called Just Food, an organization working to make NYC a healthier place to live and eat, and will be working with them on their Youth Community Chefs program.These inspiring young people are participating in urban farming and gardening initiatives and then sharing their knowledge of and passion for good food with their neighbors.
