Lazer Cappuccino Helmet Lock


Lazer is releasing a number of products recently, with a humorous set of promotional videos. The Cappuccino lock is really just a very simple deterrent mechanism for preventing your helmet or bike from getting stolen…at least while keeping it in eye shot when free locked. The video, however…is worth watching.

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.

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.
