Bike news briefs

This just in.
Here are some great articles that are worth the read on bikes, bike lanes, and bike commutes. In that order.

This one speaks to european style bikes which are terrific for commuting comfortably.

This one is particularly interesting because you wouldn't think that a city like Boston would just be dedicating the first two stretches of bike lanes this last week. It's true. You know how I know? I found it on the internet!

I only have to bike 2.1 miles form my house to work. It is an easy, easy commute. I have asked around and no one seems to know the breaking point at which people would no longer consider riding their bike but would drive instead, For me it is about 5 or 6 miles. I'm spoiled. But check out this article about a guy in New York that does 12 miles, one way!

Stay safe out there!

Hello to you too.
Glad you like it.
The more bikers that are out there, the better our chances of improving the situation!
Give me a shout when you get into town.
