Details still sketchy, but remember, this is the city that drew attention for a “yellow bike” sharing program. Crudely yellow-painted bikes were made available for free — ride it where you need it, leave it there for the next rider. But theft and other issues eventually depleted the program. Attrition has been a perennial challenge for bike-sharing programs, for even the most widely acknowledged success in Paris. For all the issues, bike sharing remains a highly visible tool for seeding additional rider interest in metro areas.

Wish I could have been there at the finish of the BC Bike Race. Bike magazine was, thanks for their report.

I’d go for this: Fully enclosed bike parking pods with showers!

Fighting back: What’s the value of a YouTube video? If Christopher Long, a Critical Mass cyclist, wins his case, it could be $1.5 million. Long, who was riding in a New York event, is suing the city’s police deprtment for assault after an officer filed a false report. A YouTube video shows an officer assaulting the cyclist.
