This is really interesting

#bike safety attire disguises people as highly visible non-humans?

Winning strategy! 🦺💀

Great insight though, that could lead to safety breakthroughs

I’m curious what “human” looking cyclists would have to look like to satisfy dangerous drivers 🫤

I wonder if putting eyes on the back of #BikeHelmets would help?

Like they put eyes on the back of helmets to prevent people from getting attacked by tigers 🐯

If you are in the market for an easy-to-use way to store your #bike then you should check out the 'Hornit Clug Pro'.

I needed to free up some storage space and this does the trick. Installed these yesterday and I'm quite impressed with them.

A car driver (without registration) ran a red light "at speed" and hit a 10-year-old cyclist, knocking her over the windscreen and "through the air". The driver then immediately drove off, abandoning the car a bit later, and running away.

Amazingly, in Bolton Crown Court, a £1600 fine and 12-month driving ban was considered enough.

I'm trialing some wax based chain lube instead of the usual 'dry' oil.

I've heard good things about wax, but it might be marketing.

I'm using a drip wax on both bikes.

New 10 speed Shimano cassette and chain on the gravel bike, and an 11 speed Campagnolo cassette and KMC chain on the road bike.

I stripped the lube off both chains and I've applied drip wax 3 times and left to dry before riding. Shifting seems good on both bikes.

"The Portland City Council this week asked the Maine Turnpike Authority to halt work on a four-lane toll highway to communities west of the city, arguing that the project known as the Gorham Connector is incompatible with local and state plans to combat climate change and that planners should consider reducing rush-hour traffic with rapid transit."

Another amazing day out there, seventy km, about half #gravel. I love the way the gravel bike has opened up new roads I’d never have chanced to explore on my old road #bike.

Felt bad for a poor #feral #cat who heard me coming and sprinted some 300m at 30 km/h before diving into the tall grass as I closed the distance between us. He never looked back and I’ve never seen a domestic cat run so far so fast.

An arrow-straight gravel road penetrates a thick wood of lush greenery, one of the few remaining stands of the great Carolinian forest that once covered what is now mostly industrialized farmland. A lightening bolt-shaped sliver of blue sky is visible where the boughs of the trees nearly meet over the center of the road; otherwise, apart from the road, the frame is all green with vegetation.

Very curious about the internal workings of #AppleMaps & #pdx #bike routing.

We've got a greenway network that Maps doesn't acknowledge. But it also invents bike lanes, putting you on fast, narrow streets. and it picks un-signaled crossings for arterials (e.g .Cesar Chavez). It's worse on intra-quadrant routes.

I try to report unsafe or misleading segments when I'm planning a route in advance & have time. I'm sure someone gets right on that.

(fwiw Google Maps seems to pick calmer routes)

The first sign of Summer is a sign. 'Summer pedestrian street. Slow down.’

Cars aren’t actually banned, but the speed limit is 15km and pedestrians & cyclists have the right of way. I adore the cartoonish car-slowing flower pots that are installed with the Summer Street signs. Any driver who bothers has to crawl behind the rest of us anyway, because we walk, cycle, chat, drink and dine in the middle of the street as if we think we own the road. Because hey, we do!

#Aarhus #Bike #ClimateDiary

Mid-city Aarhus in sunshine, looking along the street. There are people chatting, eating, resting, chilling at café tables, on random chairs, sitting on benches and walls. There are cyclists and pedestrians just visible ahead between the buildings and trees. In the foreground, close up, one of the temporary Summer Street signs.  “Summer pedestrian street. Slow down. Max. 15 km. an hour.’  (My translation from Danish.) It’s yellow with silhouetted figures of a cyclist; a pedestrian; and a cargo bike with one person pedalling and another sitting upright in the front. The council logo and name is at the bottom - these are official Aarhus policies and priorities. Above it, a permanent blue sign showing that it’s a street zoned with pedestrians as the priority all year around, with a smaller sign saying ‘driving permitted’. Just beyond, a gigantic red flower pot with tall grasses in it. Surrounding the signs, parked bikes, some with helmets left on them. The feeling this image gives me: A welcoming street, relaxed, a weekend atmosphere every day, you can almost hear the birds singing and the sound of people chatting and laughing.

Finally, the US will take some baby steps in regulating safety of pedestrians in roadways filled with cars; i.e., it will alter the NCAP (new car assessment program) go give a skill score of not only in vehicle injury potential… but also external vehicle (!pedestrian !cyclists) injury potential.

Good news for folks walking/biking… albeit a baby step. Comments requested at 2nd link.

you think you know how to #bike and then you bike in amsterdam during rush hour on a borrowed bike from the hotel, which has a coaster brake (a thing you haven’t had on a bike since you were 8), a regular hand brake that barely worked, AND since the hotel bikes only had one size, a bike too tall to get your foot on the ground when stopped.

it was a disaster which, now in hindsight, i shall just deem an adventure.
