  1. Wyoming to require hi-viz vest, ID, lights

    Apparently a bill was introduced to require all bicycle riders to wear 200 sq inches of hi-viz, have a photo ID at all times, and have a rear light.

    Besides the general stupidity of this whole...

    Davis is a good example of the final pillar of Dutch cycling and one that they put considerable emphasis on — efforts to make bicycling a good choice of transportation must never cease. They are...

    Is that true throughout the 2.5 million people Portland metro area or just pockets? If you did a survey of every grocery (and that might be a good measure) in the metro area what would the ratio of...

    Good reasons to ride a bicycle to work:

    I agree with you that we should have better metrics in the U.S. That said, the road counts done by bike/walk have been quite close to census data though lower.

    That is certainly one option. A quite poor one in my opinion.

    Another is to advocate for protected Dutch standard infrastructure that will allow everyone of every age, gender, and physical...

    Think about this, if you are riding on the road you have approximately the same probability of being hit by an errant driver as if you are driving in a car for the same distance (e.g., I have to go...

    The trick is to not ride so hard that you sweat and to dress appropriately. When it's in the 30's I usually wear jeans, mock turtleneck or oxford, maybe a sweater, jacket, and gloves. If I start to...

    OP, a few things to consider. Your weight will be putting some stress on those bikes. Others more knowledgable can chime in but bike shops around here get very cautious with people over about 225 lbs...

    About 99%. Don't do it. There is no need to 'kit' unless you're racing or on a training ride. Wear normal clothes.

    Better to not enjoy it on your commute than have it stolen and not enjoy it at all. Millions of people routinely ride 40 lb 3-speed bikes 10-30 miles each way on a daily basis. It's not difficult. 6...

    I quite strongly disagree. Vehicles are quite deadly. A driver is responsible for the operation of their vehicle and they need to be held responsible for any results. If there is sun glare then the...

    I'd be surprised if SF is at 6%, at least based on a week there in December.

    Was the decline in Davis actually due to an influx of new people choosing to drive or did the number of people riding...

    I agree with the final comment — the guy on the bike looked ridiculous. Don't know why he didn't just wear normal clothes like normal people. :-)

    Many people in Europe take a train to near their workplace and then have a bike that they keep there for the last bit and for getting around during the day. Works quite well.
