    Well Danes don't follow the rules too closely either. My own policy is to only run reds at small empty intersections. Got a ticket for that once, plain clothes bike cops in Copenhagen!

    I think I must be fairly innocent from almost 5 years commuting in Copenhagen, but I thought it was kind of a remarkable display of chaos, inefficiency, rudeness, and lack of understanding of the...

    I'm kind of curious to know how changing clothes to ride a couple miles is practical for anyone. (That said I will soon be attending to some business and unable to respond today.)

    I can guess what you wear!

    I stand quite firm with my assertion that a great deal of them are dressed impractical and ride impractical. Very little utility to be seen on bike or rider. Its true...

    Munkedamsveien by Sjøgata, right near at the Oslo-center end of the big "tour de finance" coastal commute route.

    A person could ponder the Google street view for some time. The two-way bike path...

    A regular bike is not well balanced though, 2/3 of the weight in back plus only one front tire to push through the snow. I've been noticing how this works on my trikes...

    The guy who founded and owns the company seems to have a vision of what he wants, and he sticks to it. For example, that "dog" model is just a regular model with a door in front. One would think it...

    I've got two Niholas, which are tadpole cargo trikes with ackerman steering (i.e. the "box" is welded into the rest of the frame). Pretty...
