– Pony: e-bikes designed for sharing
– The company also helps you earn money through sharing if you purchase your own fleet of bikes.

Interesting model that can be rented in France: “The Double Pony is a two-seater electric bike, ultra-robust and designed like a motorcycle to withstand shared use with a range of 100km.”

An e-bike with two riders. The rider on the back has a handle that they can grab with their hands (to steady themselves) and prongs on which they rest their feet.

Absolutely love walkable green cities and bike lanes

Why can't existing traffic controls (lights/stop signs/ intersections/crossings etc) on main roads consistently apply to bikes

Not everyone can afford an uber.

Not everyone can ride a bike.

Many need disability car parking (especially (at least) near their own suburban homes)

#bikes are not for everyone

Got myself a wheel upgrade from Hunt Wheels for Black Friday, 44 deep - the bike looks super, wish I could try it out but with the cold, crazy wind, half snow & half rain & dark day going to have to wait.

I love how my old pieced together street bike with the 30 year old XT rear derailleur, mid level old stock Grip Shift, and $15 Microshift cassette shifts like butter, absolutely smooth, quiet, and precise.

Today our local daily carried #Providence Urbanist Networks' response to the #RhodeIsland Department of Transportation's revised Carbon Reduction Strategy.

tl;dr: While there are improvements, it's still nowhere near where it needs to be. Response by @shadow and I.

I'm sure many other states are going through the same thing right now.

I can't find the post, but someone was asking for recommendations on bike tools recently. At the time, I couldn't recall the name of the brand of my favorite bike tools and was too lazy to go check my toolbox. Anyway, it's and they're having their annual sale RIGHT NOW. Enter "BLKCM23" at checkout for 15% off.

A professional mechanic recommended their Crombie Tool to me and it's AMAZING.

If you can afford it, donate old bikes to a group like "Free Bikes For Kids" to refurbish. This will help get more functional bikes in your community and provide experience maintaining bikes.

Buy bikes this holiday shopping season! Not only are they fun and good exercise, but bicycles may be a critical from of transportation as we resist the next attack from the far-right (perhaps triggered by Trump's conviction or election loss in 2024). Our fuel infrastructure is vulnerable to attack -- whether cyberattacks (like the Colonial pipeline in 2021) or physical attacks. This could be especially bad if the far-right gains control of any territory in the US (they already have control of many large companies, and may decide to cut off supplies to some areas). Bicycles and e-bikes would be incredibly valuable to maintain some mobility within our cities. They have even proven to be useful in military operations outside of cities.

In August, I traveled to Finland with my family. Now that it is *checks watch* nearly December, I've started to wade through all the videos I took on the bike.

Here's a short snippet from Espoo, towards the end of a ~45 km ride my dad took me on.

I tested out tons of bikes this weekend at @cargobikefest -- It's exciting how much this industry is evolving.

Three #bikes were outstanding to both pedal and be a passenger in. Two others had noteworthy cargo / logistics innovations.

So much to look forward to in the #decadeofthecargobike!

#biketooter has been making cargo bikes for decades. This bright red rickshaw model is a recent addition to their catalog. It's super fun to both pedal and be a passenger in. 

Responsive gearing that takes corners beautifully. is chainless! 

It is a very smooth ride, does tight turns, and is fun for both riding in and pedaling -- though it is intended as a freight vehicle. 

The bike uses a linear hybrid drive system, removing the chains and gearing system and replacing it with just a generator at the crank and motors in the rear hubs.
NÜ is an electric trailer with sensors that automatically accelerate and brake with a millisecond precision. The eTrailer can hook on to any bicycle, feels incredibly light when you move it, and works as an electric handcart in pedestrian zones.

The Royal Mail is a pedaled mini-truck and probably the most popular vechicle to demo at the festival. UK-based brought this easy to drive mini-truck/bike to the festival, along with a few other fun light vehicles. 

Tell me again, why do we need cars in cities? Longtail bikes that are large enough to fit an adult or 3 children! Smart batteries. Good passenger opening mechanism.

Lots of things I dislike about Bay Area public transit, but being able to take your bike on almost all buses, trains, ferries, is a huge win.

So many fun trips here start on a bike, onto BART, or ferry, then SMART train, then golden gate transit bus, and more.

You can take them on almost every mode of transit except Muni streetcar. (But Muni bus is fine and has good bike racks)

I love this, but that's because I feel like 90% of bike trends, especially MTB, of the last 20 years have been for no good reason except marketing, and aren't even neutral, they're worse.

Hello! is live! It's a small (but growing) #queer #community around #bikes and #bicycles. It leverage #Signal groups with 4 weeks ephemeral discussions and enforce a strong moderation.

Don't hesitate to join, invite your friends, talk to #queers about it around you!

The idea is to have #private space(s) where we can freely talk about our interests and passions. Getting to know each other and maybe even be able to organize little gatherings in the end!

@Allium is working on the illustrations, where just like for the design of the website, some work is still ongoing.

Contributions are welcomed and don't hesitate to reach out if you have any question. Thanks for sharing!

They have a car-shaped bike rack outside, taking up their car-parking spot. 🚲🚲🚲🚲🚲

And I got a pair of NL bike lights! Came with minimalistic cardboard packaging 💡🌍

An orange envelope containing a ballot, held up in front of the Dutch embassy door and the royal crest.
An orange bike rack, with the outline of a car on one side. It has the logos of Helsinki and the Netherlands.
Front and rear bike LED lights. They have "NL Netherlands" logos on them, and #LetsGoCycling on the minimalistic packaging card.
Back of the packaging card for the lights. It reads:

"Let the Dutch embassy light your way: spot on!

Yesterday we at Providence Urbanist Network submitted our comments on the Rhode Island Department of Transportation's "Carbon Reduction Strategy."

In its current form, it's not a strategy to reduce #carbon. It's a strategy to avoid contributing to meeting the state's Act on Climate targets. It represents predatory delay.

Thanks to RMI for making the Shift Calculator publicly available.

Lots of interesting data in this 2014-2019 German study.

"Cycling rather than driving was positively associated with orientation towards the common good in all models. Cycling was the only variable that was a significant positive predictor for all four facets of orientation towards the common good after controlling for possibly confounding variables (homeownership, personal income, education, sex). "

"According to DOT data, 12 pedestrians have been killed by all users of electric two-wheeled vehicles since 2014—that's e-bikes, e-scooters, Revels, stand-up scooters, "hoverboards," etc. That's roughly the same number of people who are killed by car drivers in a single month, in a typical year."

I almost did not answer, figuring if it was real they could leave a message.But Kaz was taking her time, so I answered. Guy asked if I still accepted bikes to give people. I said "Yes, with qualifications; what kind of bike do you have?"
He said "My name's Jeff; you ⤵️

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! 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.
