Dog on bike

Reading Time: < 1 minute This is kind of the ultimate Dutch bike picture. Lady who lives in the town of Bergschenhoek, a 10 minute bike ride from Rotterdam, carries her dog around in a basket on her bike. But not only that, she also has two panniers, a bag hanging off her bars and a seat cover (that is supposed to keep her seat dry when the bike is out and it rains). And of course, no helmet….

Quelle différence!

Reading Time: < 1 minute Eighty percent of people are apparently afraid for change. In Ottawa it sometimes appears that 95% is nervous. The management of the condos on Laurier, afraid for a bike lane in front of their building, put a sign out expressing anger their worries. But what a difference in Montreal: condo management uses the bike lane on Maisonneuve to their advantage. They printed four banners with bicycles on it to use the bike lane as a unique selling point (in the world of marketing: a USP). Le2100.com Latter photo by Eric Darwin.

Canadian cyclist in winterstorm

Reading Time: < 1 minute Walking outside during a snow storm, trying to spot a cyclist. And yes, there is one. A courier. And some people claim it is too cold for cycling in winter. It is not really too cold (with some exceptions), it is the condition of the road. And even on this picture, it doesn’t look so bad.
