Kumar attached the bin to his bicycle which has made his daily task much easier. He can now get around faster. The Bicycle Bin is a simple yet innovative idea by a common man.

When we were planning our trip, I’d admitted to Claire that I might not be a good cycling companion

I had turned my phone off. I didn’t want it to go dead. I was worried about an emergency—like wobbling into a ditch, falling off my bike, getting all banged up, and having to spend the night on the trail somewhere with a broken leg.

A bicycle with no gears – also called Manyi g’ekifuba by the Baganda – has one speed ratio and is usually exhausting to propel forward when riding uphill since one relies mostly on their strength to move it

Well for me, given my enthusiasm regarding exercise, I think of such a bicycle as the crème de la crème and best of the bunch.

The Canadian Bike Brigade (Toronto) connects non-profits and individuals with an Internet-connected army of volunteer cyclists willing to help do anything from deliver essentials to those in need, deliver food to homeless shelters, or even marshal anti-racism protests

I pull up to the Biking Lawyer’s office and there are 5-6 other cyclists there. Outside volunteers are carrying out boxes of produce. Some are emptying the boxes into panniers, others are putting them on racks strapped down with bungee cords. I have signed up to bring five boxes with me and am disappointed when the first box comes out. I can’t even get it through the opening in the top of the trailer. But not to worry – it turns out that inside the box are plastic bags full of produce. I take the bags out and stack them inside, and five fit perfectly.

Let us give due recognition and gratitude to our cycling friends in Iloilo and the thousands of cyclists who have made their beautiful city the biking capital of the country

Keywords: the region

The Iloilo City Government will interconnect bike lanes all over the metropolis for easier and safer mobility of those biking to work and back home.

Biking has been running as a convenient option amid COVID-19 pandemic which has paralyzed portions of public transport.

Is free bike sharing economically feasible for cities and towns?

Keywords: homes , new homes and condos life

Studies show that creating a km of bollard-protected bike lanes is about $380,000, which may sound like a lot. But in comparison, a one km stretch of a bus rapid transit system comes in at $500,000 and it’s a big jump up to $326 million per km to build a light rapid transit line, such as the Eglinton Cross town LRT. But all of these numbers are a fraction of the $1 billion per km needed to build more subway lines.

Riding bikes (bicycles) in city traffic — how to appropriately respect other people

A lot of peoples ride their bikes like dicks. Daredeviling, riding on the sidewalk, cycling with a speedy sense of entitlement or superiority, blithely cutting off both pedestrians and other people on bikes. For a mode trying to get more traction in a country born and raised on the car – especially up against a large, loud and lethal culture of drivers who hate people on bikes – it’s not a good look.

This isn’t to deny the noble war being fought against the scourge of car culture. I count myself as a soldier in that war. But among soldiers fighting a war, there are codes of honor. As I see it, the same idea applies to the battlefield of our city streets.

Not everyone plays clean in this war. I get it. A lot of operators of cars, trucks and motorcycles are horrible, literally putting people’s lives in danger or even ending them. It’s a dirty battle, sometimes stained in blood. But I never presumed that this harsh reality buys me a license to carry on with a reckless ‘fuck-you’ flair when I’m on my bike.

Against this backdrop and the decades of experience I have riding a bicycle in the city, I’ve learned to maneuver around the metropolis on my two wheels with a simple code: Ride like a gentleman.
