"Cycling is one of the most sustainable and healthy means of #transport that exists, yet cycling remains under-prioritized in the mobility mix in most places around the world and in the wider #climate agenda.
"The potential for #cycling (and #walking) to help address #ClimateChange is huge and within our grasp." —Jill Warren, chief executive of the European Cyclists’ Federation https://www.forbes.com/sites/tanyamohn/2023/12/04/the-climate-mouse-that-roars-cyclists-take-on-cop28/

the Femmes & Thems women, nonbinary, trans group ride met again today - first Sat of every month & the turnout wasn't bad for a chilly (but not too cold 41F/5C) day out in #Chicago
what a fabulous group of folks this is. i always have a great time w them
we got to visit a super cool spot called working bikes, where unused/trashed/donated bikes are either tuned up or recycled, and then donated overseas and locally, or sold at womderful prices. what an awesome spot

California Bicycle Coalition / #CalBike 2024 Summit Advance Session "Success Stories from San Diego" included a presentation by Bike SD's ED Anar Salayev. He referred to importance of recognizing needs of small businesses while advocating for changes that make streets safer for people who bike & walk.
One idea he mentioned: small-business discount programs. @ 29:50 https://youtu.be/pPxwq0fs1xY?si=neFweJcmoT7isBI7&t=1790
In 2009 we launched such a program in #MontereyCounty; it remains in place, although impacted by pandemic, as well as by need for #RubyOnRails support. (As with all #Bicycling #Monterey projects https://bikemonterey.org/about/financial-donations/donations-some-ways-your-money-can-help, we've done all HER Helmet Thursdays work as a volunteer 2009-2023.)

This is a really good article about bicycle touring in Adventure Cycling Association.
"Andrea Gonzalez was a familiar sight biking around Philadelphia, helping community members connect with resources, and most recently, planning her wedding.
Last month, however, a bicycling crash left a void for the hundreds of Philadelphians she helped. Gonzalez, 33, was killed when her bike was struck by a car while she was riding in Cherry Hill."

ok so now we know.
a bigger car/truck is 45% more likely to kill someone.
""Poor and vulnerable people are paying a high price for this arms race among auto consumers," Schmitt said in an email.
Over the past three decades, the average U.S. passenger vehicle has gotten about 4 inches wider, 10 inches longer, 8 inches taller and 1,000 pounds heavier"
these things are ridiculous.
now, who is gonna do something about it?!

Help me out, Oakland/East Bay bike tooters

I took the northern route Google suggested (screenshot) and it wasn’t great. I didn’t mind the traffic, but very poor pavement and lots of debris

Another reason to ditch the car and use #bicycling or #PublicTransit to commute:
“Your car can keep collecting your data after a judge dismissed a #privacy lawsuit / A group of class action lawsuits alleges automakers ‘recorded and intercepted [car owners’] private text messages and call logs’ — but a federal judge doesn’t think that’s enough to violate privacy laws.”
"Murder She Wrote" Season 1, episode 6.
A "bicycle clip" and lack of it leading to marks on trousers lead to the capture of the guilty party.
I used those for years and then they suddenly just disappeared. I prefer them to the velcro straps I now use.
The last one I used was too small and ended up hurting my leg.

I just read this piece in Outside by a cycler disgruntled with the advent of disc brakes. Share with me your opinions on disc brakes on bicycles. I love mine. The only service I've done so far is changing pads. Once I looked at several videos and did it once, it was pretty easy. The pads are pricey, though. My levers aren't squishy to the point that I think I have air in the lines and need to bleed them. #bicycling #bicycles #discbrakes #brakes https://www.outsideonline.com/culture/opinion/disc-brakes-took-over-the-cycling-world-heres-why-that-was-a-mistake/?_hsmi=280261039&utm_term=ool&utm_campaign=dispatch&utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter&_hsenc=p2ANqtz--Jn1KjBkaPkTedvSsNzWJ7hmf7LEbLZ12NTVsB5ZK0gePka752MZYUP8UXcIraIIkUmNBcaNhIUwDE2xKYBpZkdDpXhA

We strongly urge people to use the free AARP Bike Audit Tool Kit created by #AARP and #BikeLeague, whether in #Monterey County or anywhere. ICYMI, e.g., in #CalBike e-blast, Bicycling Monterey's Autumn Bike Buzz, or elsewhere, here are some details—including updates today (post-webinar) on how much time it takes to do a bike audit. https://bikemonterey.org/bike-buzz-autumn-2023-news-from-bicycling-monterey.html. The Tool Kit is available from AARP as a free download or free print edition. Spanish version expected Jan 2024.

So far I quite like Assos and Alé bike bibs but they both have the same obnoxious problem: the pad retains water like a sponge, something my Voler and Castelli shorts don't do. They take forever to dry out, with the pad still damp days after they're washed and hung up to dry.
(Realized I never pinned my #introduction so thus this re-intro.)
We appreciate @ascentale and others who took time to respond to our spring 2023 questionnaire. We've been posting some responses in a series, "Voices of People Who Bike," which will continue through 2023.
Part 3 of that series is now up! https://bikemonterey.org/voices-of-people-who-bike-part-3-including-inviting-drivers-and-inspiring-places.html It addresses making #bicycling more #inclusive, inviting others to #bike, impact of #drivers (both #BikeFriendly and dangerous drivers), and the most inspiring places to bike, anywhere in the world.
Missed the questionnaire? We welcome comments on that post. Perhaps add your input about favorite places to bike—in your local area or elsewhere—or about a place where you'd like to bike but haven't YET.
Do you see a lot of cargo-bicycles (trikes, two-wheelers with baskets, bikes with trailers etc.) in your daily life? And what appears to be the most common usage; work-bikes, kid-transport, general use, shopping?
Mine: Rural Denmark (town with some surprisingly large companies). Cargo-trikes and bike-trailers are a very common daily sight. They appear to be used equally for kid-transport and general use. Two wheeled cargo-bikes are less common.
Okay, having found an apartment (yay! whew!!!), I'm going to want an errand/commute bike, since most of my shopping/errands etc will be in easy range. Need to start thinking about ebike vs analog though. Inclined to stick with analog. Will start trying some out over next month or so.
(Maybe both? But not sure my budget will allow that. Maybe I sell my fancy road bike? 🤔)

Weekend #bicycling trip on the Greenbriar trail went wonderfully; we had an old (running) friend join us on her first-ever bike-packing trip and she really enjoyed it and wants to go again. :)
The weather was perfect and we got to swim in the river several times over the weekend. Stayed over at Watoga this time instead of the usual town park and it was lovely. (Close proximity to ice cream and drinks at Jack Horner's Corner store didn't hurt!)
My shoulder hurts.
I injured it sometime this spring, and it just hasn't recovered. So I visited a physiotherapist last week, and he informed me that I had a bog standard, easy to fix, rotator cuff injury.
So now I am the proud owner of some really large rubber bands and a very specific exercise routine.
I am avoiding other upper body work while this heals... but it turns out London is great for cycling.

"My car week tradition for the last few years has been to commit to biking to work each day. Since moving late last year, my bike commute grew from 10 to 15 miles each way, and I'm sad to say I hadn't tried it since the move. I gave it a shot this week and am happy to report that it is still totally doable! I didn't realize how much I had missed commuting by bike!"
