@[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.

Always love the "license cyclists" angle. Even if there was an issue (there isn't) with "reckless" cyclists, we've been licensing drivers for a century and we still can't get one of them to stop at a stop sign.

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 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.

@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.

COP: Know why I pulled you over?
ME: Austerity policies and tax-cuts for the rich made you a bagman for corrupt revenue quotas?
COP:
ME: Blink if yes.

@Malaclypse “Does democracy better than anywhere else…” 🤷 sure.

#mbta utterly feckless service level truly something to behold. January cannot come soon enough.

Here’s what Mayor Anne Hidalgo knew when she took office in 2014:

It wasn’t the hills, weather or culture that was preventing Parisians from cycling; it was a lack of safe infrastructure.

With that revelation—and some immense courage—she has unleashed a revolution in the city.

Saved by curvature.... "To the naked eye it appeared over the line, but the decision was made that the curvature of the ball was hanging over the chalk, to the delight of Japan's players."

Tom Simpson (1937-1967) was the first British cyclist to wear the yellow jersey in the Tour de France. During the 1967 Tour he collapsed and died one kilometer short of the top of Mount Ventoux.
Happy #BicycleBirthday, Tom!

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.

@ternbicycles Certainly beats a $60k SUV in price, looks, and environmental impact. 🤘

@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.

Pleased as punch to find @TheWarOnCars here - one of the best #podcast shows going. Here is my #ebike cargo crate customized with one of the show's famously cheeky stickers. I get lots of positive comments on it as I cruise around #Vancouver.

@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.

We love seeing Tern riders exploring their city & sharing their #MuralMonday. Tag us in photos of your Tern in front of a local mural!!

@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.

Attention Boston area urbanists - pool night this Thursday with @JeffSpeckFAICP - 6:30 pm at Scholars - 25 School Street in Boston. Easily accessible by all modes, especially walk, bike, and transit. Hope to see you there!
