Who doesn't love to see a bride on a bike?
Decca didn't sign the Beatles…
And in 1987, Peter Lumley, editor of a British bicycle trade magazine, said the newly-introduced Brompton shouldn't win a 'best of show' prize because – a 'sad sign of the times' - it was just a bike "you fold up and chuck in a car boot."
Hit the mark but missed the point.
Bill Posters will be
Little more than a year ago, Evelyn Stevens was just another associate on Wall Street, working 50-hour weeks with an investment fund and trying to stay in shape by sneaking the occasional jog.
Then she bought a bike.
Bike Shop Girl: Helping women find their way in cycling
I Am In Like With My Bike: "You put it between your legs. Why wouldn't you kiss it?" (Umm, well I could think of a few reasons, but I get where they're coming from.)
Live long and pedal
Dave Moulton says cyclists live longer.
Hating urban sprawl
The Government says more than half of 600,000 homes built in the next 20 years will be in established areas, perhaps on some of the sites The Age has identified. Yet there is no commitment to build infill housing before building new suburbs on Melbourne's fringes. And developers are flooding to those fringes, where many consider development easier.
Much more could be done to compel developers to make smarter use of existing land, experts say.
It seems odd that there's such a gold rush to greenfield development when renewed or new inner urban sites are always going to be more valuable and more saleable. Greenfield is clearly easier and cheaper to do.
Reasons to oppose safe passing laws
San Antonio Express News reports that in Texas
The father of a driver accused of killing two bicyclists last summer recently urged Gov. Rick Perry to veto a bill that generally would have required motorists to give vulnerable road users more space when passing them.
Talk about insensitive.
"I never really thought about it being something that was going to be public. It was probably not a wise thing to do in retrospect," Bain said.
We've got ourselves a really deep thinker there.
Some explanation required
Shooting a cyclist in the head is not attempted murder, apparently. No, I can't work it out either.
What is he on about?
What is The Age's columnist Geoff Strong on about?
Like Britain's Light Brigade, which charged into the annals of military disaster, and turgid poetry, in the mid-19th century Crimean War, the charge along Beach Road and any other Melbourne thoroughfare can be a grim, joyless affair.
Out of that mangled prose I extract that he thinks Melbourne's cyclists aren't having fun. Pffft! I know damned well that my cycling isn't some "grim, joyless affair". There are some good responses over at Melbourne Cyclist.
What a performance

It's the law
Xtracycle + Recumbent = Longtail Recumbent—as if recumbents aren't long enough…
Every summer, here at Adventure Cycling, we enjoy the parade of bicycle travelers who drop by our office here in Missoula, Montana. These cyclists come from all over the world. Their variety of style, equipment, route, and purpose is endless.
