Segregated bike infrastructure. The goal for any true lover of bike culture.
A café in the city of Roskilde uses a Nihola posterbike to advertise. They just park it out on the main square to draw attention to themselves.
A birthday beer (or two) with Carlo in Okoř.
Carlo and I finally went for a ride.
I met Carlo through this blog, last summer. He's Australian, and a doctor of mathematics, and moved to Prague in January, with his wife, Nadiah. They just had a baby boy.
Carlo's also a cyclist, and had seen my blog last year, and contacted me before a brief trip to Prague. We met for a beer,
One of the great things about Copenhagen's bike lanes is that you always meet people you know. You can ride with them, you can chat at a red light or you can just wave and smile.
You'd smile, too, if you could cycle daily - alone or with a friend - on a sophisticated
We are living in uncertain times, but there is one thing that is certain: the existence of an UMBL (or Unmounted Brake Lever) can only mean trouble of apocalyptic proportions:

Most men will want to pre-register, but especially 5's and 4's.
They even have a little bit in common. Gravity keeps us from flinging off into the cosmos, broccoli is good for you, Tim Masi is good for you and is presently dealing with issues stemming from an unplanned embrace with gravity, the Wednesday Night Ride was full of levity until some of us, like Tim, met gravity which resulted in a bit of misery..
Am I the only one making the connection here?

The Sea Otter in a nutshell.
Young Hightower and I rode from Santa Cruz to Monterey. At one point while traveling into the constant headwind, I glanced at my computer and I was moving along at 17 miles an hour. I stopped pedaling, and within five feet, was at a dead stop. The wind didnt let up until Sunday morning, I ate bangers and mash with bacon and cheese on it, we drank some beers, and some people rode their bikes. Travis Brown took some single speeders to class, and eventually I

However, there still are valid reasons for using them, so we shan’t be seeing their sticky undersides permanently rolling off the rim of cycling any time soon. If you’re new to cycling and are unfamiliar with tubulars, they are those tires that you glue onto your rim, and some other common names for them are sew-ups, tubs, tubies, singles, wheel gaskets, glue-gutted rim a
