Circa 1890. "Frances Benjamin Johnston, self-portrait, dressed as a man with false mustache." The Washington, D.C., photographer was one of the first women to rise to prominence in the profession.
I'm fashionable, again
I don't know much about fashion, but I know what I like. I also know that if you do just about anything for long enough (with perhaps a few notable exceptions, such as masturbation or genocide), it eventually becomes fashionable. Or, indeed, fashionable again*. [And so it is with g].
* That said, I can't really see the mullet or stone-washed stretch denim making a big comeback any time soon. But then again, who can comprehend the addled minds of the trend-setting elite?
Road trip, anyone?
The World's most spectacular roads—some good cycling to be had in some of these places, I reckon.
Bristol City Council provides evidence on the benefits of cycling and walking:
Key evidence from peer-reviewed literature, often from a public health evidence base is being used to strengthen the case for current policies and practice
Let's get physics
Utter bloody disregard
The war on error
The war on bicyclism is a just war:
"... if you asked which killed more people in the last 10 years in London, international terrorism, or bicycles, the answer would definitely be bicycles"
Bike lanes squeezed
Cycle lanes can make roads more dangerous for cyclists because they encourage motorists to drive closer when overtaking bicycles, a study has found.
Drivers give cyclists a wider berth on roads where there is no lane because they assume that they should share the road and make more allowance for the risk of wobbles.
This is not the first time such a theory has been proposed—see: [The of Cycle Lanes on Cyclists' Road Space] [PDF] by the Warrington Cycle Campaign. And Dr Ian Walker's overtaking study is not a million miles away either.
In Chicago, we share the road

highways, and toll bridges [PDF]:
The danger to bicyclists is overwhelmingly concentrated at intersections, driveways, and other places where traffic patterns cross. Elimination of cross traffic and the reduction of turning maneuvers are among the features that make freeways so safe for motor traffic. These same advantages benefit bicyclists, and many surface streets are more dangerous than freeway shoulders.
Dressing for the conditions
"There is no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes." The basic winter bicycling clothing temperature table may help in this regard.
