The Great Mid-April Bike Blog Roundup

Right, before you get too comfy and settle down to read this, some dates for your diary, with Climate Rush's Spring Clean on Thursday and, of course, the 28th April, whether you're in London, Edinburgh or Rome.

The Almost Miraculous Easter Bike Blog Roundup

Ah, Easter, beloved by cyclists everywhere as a chocolate fest, not to mention the whole miraculous rising from the dead thing. And let's start with the resurrection side of things, with Beauty and the Bike to rise again, and Darlovelo given a new lease of life, courtesy of Darlo Bike Girl's resurrected biking mojo.

Paris

As promised in my earlier review of the French city of Strasbourg, here is my report on Paris, a city that I found rather less civilised for cycling than the Alsatian one.

The Great Big April Fool Blog Roundup

Well, top marks to the government for the biggest (if a little premature) April fool of them all: the great-fuel-crisis-that-never-was (and look who they have to send to close down a petrol station).

The Great British Summertime Bike Blog Roundup

Hooray, winter's over, it's British summer time at last (and for once the Weather gods have got the memo) with cyclists (and bloggers) everywhere coming out of hibernation.

Blog Roundup 11/2012

Well, it's Mother's Day - and while I'd love to be putting together a grand mother-themed blog roundup this week, unfortunately mother-and-cycling blog posts were a little thin on the ground, possibly because mothers don't cycle much here because cycling in the UK is still something fit men with no dependents mainly do or, more likely, because mums are mostly too busy to blog. Are you a cycling mum? Did we miss you and your fantastic blog? Let us know in the comments

NY and Philly on a Bike

When I was planning this trip, I had intended to spend as much of my time as possible in New York on a bike. Then everything else I still wanted to do and the cost of hiring a bike as opposed to gadding about on the subway got in the way. Renting a bike in NY is not cheap – this is a city that will benefit massively from its proposed bike share scheme.

Blog Roundup 9/2012

This week, we celebrated International Women's Day (the chaps get the other 364, apparently) and so we kick off with the news that 2012 could be a good year for women on bikes although, of course, even better would be if every year was. Any male readers out there shouldn't feel too bad though - as cyclists we all get to be an oppressed minority - or at least a loathed one.

DC on a Bike

 

When I last came here, in the dark final days of George Dubya, the Rough Guide of the time advised that “given the traffic, few visitors will actually want to brave the DC streets on a bicycle.” Since then, like much of the partly-civilised world, the city has started to respond to the wishes of those who want to get around without spending half their days in metal boxes. In fact the Capital Bikeshare website proudly proclaims the city as one of the US’s most bike-friendly.
