Not quite sure when or where this intense fascination with cargo bikes of all shapes and sizes came from, but I’m loving every second of it! I am really contemplating saving up for a Larry Vs. Harry in the near future. Check out this flickr album i ran across, i believe it’s from the Copenhagenize blogger. http://www.flickr.com/photos/16nine/sets/72157603273698845/

MPLS: Best Bike City in the US

Was flippin around on my twitter account and found a post from Bicycle magazine and they did an article for the upcoming mag for May 2010 on the 50 top biking cities in the US.  You would think that Portland would be top dog but no, Minneapolis eeked out the top spot on their list.  It has some good stuff on the culture and has some pics of Geno from One On One and Hurl from CRC!  Make sure you get the May edition of Bicycle.

I was super excited to see this. You wouldn’t think a place that gets feet upon feet of snow to even be in the running for this but as you can see the incredible culture in this city is great and even better then the culture is the people that live here. I’ve only been in MPLS for 3 years but my entire outlook on how to live life has changed from being here and enjoying the greatest city in the US. Thanks Minneapolis

Hipsters Vs. Hasidic Jews fight over bike lanes.

taken from Wend Magazine’s online blog:

“I used to believe that nobody would be more excited for the Williamsburg hipster trend to pass than those of us who live in Portland, Oregon, where the style has somehow managed to garner leagues of dedicated, skinny-jeans-clad adherents. It turns out that I was wrong. Hasidic Jews and hipsters are in the midst of a turf war over bike lanes in Williamsburg, the former believing the influx of cyclists in the traditionally Hasidic neighborhood in Brooklyn poses a “safety and religious hazard” and the latter wanting a safe place to ride down Bedford Avenue. The two unlikely groups came to a head last week after the New York Department of Transportation removed a 14-block section of the Bedford Avenue cycling route “as part of ongoing bike network adjustments in the area.” According to a report in the Huffington Post, opponents to the change claim the city is just giving in to demands by members of the religious group, who complained to the community board that many of the young, female cyclists who rode through the neighborhood were “hotties,” who “ride in shorts and skirts,” both of which are against their dress code. In response, a group of local bike riders has taken it upon themselves to repaint the lane lines themselves. Ironically, the group of guerrilla line painters reportedly included members of the Hasidic community who are not opposed to the lanes as well. Unfortunately I’m going to have to side with the hipsters on this one. Bike lanes, even if they are used to traffic hipsters into the city, trump religious fundamentalism every time. Watch the footage of guerilla line-painters at work above.”
