@[email protected] I saw lots of other bikes on Wednesday night, despite the storm. The truth is that weather, climate, darkness may well stop some people from riding. But plenty of other bike riders embrace it. The idea that biking in Boston just stops between October and April is totally wrong.
Love doing my shopping by bike. Loading up and cruising home at my own speed. Reminds me of summer touring. Also: no parking problems thanks to Roche Bros quality #bike parking. Included apples, oranges potatoes, 6L wine, zucchini, asparagus, celery, garlic, 2 boxes of BellaVita, some sole, bell peppers, lettuce x2, endives, Fruit’n’nut chocolate. You get the idea. #biketooter #boston #shoppingbybike
@DurableAce I’ve been liking GCN+. Not only races but some really good documentaries too. And I enjoy watching the presenters just enjoying what they’re doing too.
The main thing that makes it hard to have nature and green in cities isn’t density of buildings or density of people — it's density of CARS. And the better you’ve designed the density of people and buildings, with real multi-modal choices, the fewer cars you need.
@fooeynet It’s nice to have to see the difference between r/l but the difference is so small, I think just the Uno would be fine.
@Klaffy And this is repeated at so many junctions, on so many highways/motorways, in so many cities across the country and across the world.
@ash I popped on SRAM eTap onto my Cannondale SuperSix about 4 years ago (myself too - it’s not that difficult!) and once they’re set, they’re set. No maintenance, apart from a charge of the batteries once every few months. And you can pop the little batteries out and charge them on your desk or wherever. I snapped a rear derailleur in a bagel-related incident, and when the new one came, I still didn’t need to futz with the thing. Hearty recommendation.
