– 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.”

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)
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.
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 abbeybiketools.com 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.
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.

"Imagine #cities without locks on #bikes, #cars or front doors, with #PublicSpaces where you can take a #seat without being required to #BuyStuff and where you might encounter #people beyond your echo chambers. A dream, perhaps, but one that still sounds worth fighting for, even #beautiful."

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!

"…Coming back to the U.S. and saddling back on my bike, I felt a visceral loss of freedom and safety…
…To reach their vision of a safer, more livable city with a smaller carbon footprint, Amsterdam made biking the easiest way to get around town…
…I am convinced the Dutch ride less for their health, and maybe even less out of concern for the environment, and more for pure convenience…"
For a band of queer cyclists in southwest Colorado, biking is a “form of liberation”
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)
Just for our friends on Mastodon, we're getting a jumpstart on Black Friday...on Tuesday.
Save 10% on everything in our official store with code BIKEFRIDAY. Pick up a t-shirt, sweatshirt, hat, stickers and other great gifts for the holidays.
Have a great Thanksgiving, everyone!
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.

What is the Most Overrated Thing in the Bike Industry?
Do you like kid-focused bike rides? Join us on 12/16 (come as early as 3, rolling at 4) at Cathedral Square for a bike ride to enjoy Milwaukee's downtown holiday light displays.
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!
#bikeTooter, this is your time to shine! a friend of mine would like to recreate this outfit to the best of their ability. they think the material is probably wool, but are looking for any more info that y’all might have.
"Any genuine transport solution will not involve electrifying the world's currently growing addiction to private motor vehicles but by finding ways to avoid the need for private motor vehicles"
"Cycling and walking provide a particularly clearly win-win situation, offering both mental and physical health benefits while also decarbonizing Urban transport"

@simplicitarian What a fascinating site! The Hocken Collection has lots of old historical images of Christchurch in there too.
I like how people used to dress up fancy and get their portraits with their bicycles.
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."
🧵 Why I Do This
1) Today my phone rang just as I was taking @OldeEnglishKaz out to the back yard to pee. Phone said it was a verified number, but it was not one I recognized. 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 ⤵️
New analysis finds that bike trips in the USA rose 37% from 2019 to 2022.
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.
