Bicycle Neglect

I posted about this months ago, but it’s worth another mention. Bicycle Neglect is a series of articles by Alan Durning about why most Seattle area cities don’t treat bicycles as transportation, which communities are doing the best job, and what’s at stake.

Elsewhere:

Bicycle Design on the NYC better bike racks contest.

Like father like son: Taylor Phinney goes fast. And here’s the whole Phinney/Carpenter family in the New York Times.

Kansas City on a bike.

Brian informs me that Land Rover started out as a bicycle: the Starley & Sutton Co’s Rover Safety Bicycle, which replaces the unstable penny farthing bicycles of its day.

The Cheeseburger Footprint.
