The Great Big New Year's Resolution Bike Blog Roundup

It's 2015 and we're back from our Christmas break all ready to, well, go back to bed, frankly but that's another matter. Out there in bike blog land resolutions were being made - mostly to cycle more - although if you are resolving to give up your car then Kim Harding has a dire warning for you - life may never be the same again.

The Great Big Christmas is Coming Bike Blog Roundup

It's that time of the year when all thoughts turn to Christmas and that tantalising bike-shaped parcel under the tree (which you all fetched by bike of course, right?), and your blog roundup compiler's thoughts turn to her Christmas break, but before I can spend the festive season looking at nothing more demanding on the internet than kitten videos, there's

The Great Big Autumn Statement Bike Blog Roundup

OK, so technically (and meteorologically) it is definitely winter - with Chicago working out how best to clear its protected bike lanes of snow, and the Dutch (of course) undauntedly cycling through the rain - but the airwaves, newspapers and bike blogs were also full of the implications of the Autumn Statement and with it the

The Great Big Day of the Dead Bike Blog Roundup

No apologies for starting with the States this week, where the Governors' Highway Safety Association decided to celebrate Halloween by publishing a report on traffic deaths that seemed to be all about the dead, drunk, helmetless cyclists - despite the fact that cycling fatalities were

The Great Big Trick or Treat Bike Blog Roundup

Halloween is almost upon us, but when it comes to trick or treating, it seems cyclists have been on the receiving end of more tricks than treats this week, with the bomb squad having to be called in to defuse one Portland booby trap (you think your bikelash is bad...), while the Green Audi of the Apocalypse helped recruit one cyclist to the Near Miss project.
