The Great Big Bumper-to-Bumper Bank Holiday Bike Blog Roundup

As fine weather and a bank holiday amazingly coincide, we shouldn't be surprised that decades of car-centric policy leads inevitably to gridlock - even though the private car is apparently doomed according to one think tank although sadly not because we're all going to be riding cargo bikes.

The Cut a Slice of Cake, Grab Your Headphones and Take the Armchair Audio Blog Roundup

This week we’re looking at - well, listening to - audio coverage of cycling in various forms from around the world. Strangely audio is somewhat rarer than video, perhaps because helmet cameras and mobile phones have made video easy and obvious where only a select group of enthusiasts would focus on the sounds.

The Great Big Me, You and Froomey Too Bike Blog Roundup

I'm sure a lot of cyclists secretly like to think they've got a lot in common with the pros - but it turns out what joins the rest of us to people like Chris Froome is encountering a road-raging driver, followed up by some unsolicited advice on how to ride a bike on Twitter.

The Great Big After the Voting, Now for Action Bike Blog Roundup


Although overshadowed somewhat by a looming general election, last week saw people going to the polls to vote in a range of local elections across the country, with councillors being asked their position on cycling (and walking) in Scotland (with handy manifesto summaries from Walk Cycle Vote), and in

The Great Big Unearthing for Earth Day Bike Blog Roundup

We're used to the fact in the UK that some of our best infrastructure was built by the Victorians (in the form of old railway lines - although maybe not when you have to tackle these ramps on and off them), but now Carlton Reid proposes unearthing some historical infrastructure of slightly more recent origin - the forgotten c

Evidence roundup - the importance of infrastructure in enabling cycling

For this week's roundup we've compiled another of our 'one off' specials - we've previously looked at the evidence for shopping on the high street and how designing for walking and cycling actually boosts business.

This week we are looking at the evidence for the importance of cycling infrastructure, particularly when it increasing cycling levels, and the effectiveness of different kinds of interventions.

The Great Big Bikes not Bombs Bike Blog Roundup

In an increasingly uncertain world, one thing is certain: bike lanes cost a lot less than bombs and deliver (if you'll pardon the pun) more bang for the buck, as long as the 'bang' you want is things like savings on health care.

The Great Big Changing Minds not Just Streets Bike Blog Roundup

We're taking a step back this week on the bike blog roundup and asking how we can change not just our streets but our car-dependent mindsets so that all of our rational, well-evidenced arguments don't just fall on deaf ears, and we can recognise that what for some are the worst places to live are in fact the best - as long a

The Great Big No Fool Like an Old Fool Bike Blog Roundup

Pity your poor blog roundup compiler at this time of year when all blog posts have to be scrutinised for inherent implausibility as well as read, bookmarked and digested into a pithy sentence - anyway, call us kill joys but we're pretty certain that Birmingham cyclists won't be using an app to trigger a green light, and nor will horses and bikes be appearing on the motorway hard shoulder any tim
