pothole or pavement cracks

description

There are a number of gaping, cavernous, frightening cracks along where bikes might be riding, along market street, in various places. I noticed this going southbound, and I know I was near sanpablo, and near 27th, but I don't remember exactly where the cracks were. I had to stay pretty far left into the lane to avoid them though.<p><a href="http://www.you-sexcam.com/">sexcam und camgirls</a></p> <p><a href="http://www.q1-event.de/">stromvergleich</a></p>

pothole or pavement cracks

description

The asphalt bunches together (like a mountain) into a large unexpected bump which sent me flying off my bicycle, possibly bending the front tire, but I'm not sure. The bump is a few yards up harrison, right next the the whole foods, I think it extends both lanes but I was in the left lane, as I was getting ready to turn.

Surf the Green Wave in Copenhagen

The Green Wave in Copenhagen from Colville Andersen on Vimeo.

The Green Wave in Copenhagen is in place with high levels of bicycle traffic. If you bicycle at 20 km/h, the traffic lights are timed so that bikes hit green all the way into the city center.

This video is taken along Nørrebrogade, a main arterial which (until a few weeks ago) was one of the main arterial roadways for automobiles, but now reserved for bike and bus through-traffic. While the East Bay bickers over exclusive bus lanes on Telegraph, Copenhagen is well on its way to reaching its goal of 50% bicycle mode share by 2015. Currently, they are at a whopping 36% – nearly even with automobile mode share.

    2nd annual Scraper Bike Day - Halloween bike ride

    I rode on the first ride last year, and hope to make it again to this year's 2nd annual Scraper Bike Day ride on Halloween. Similar to Oakland's Critical Mass, (which rides on the first Friday of each month...my shameless plug), Scraper Bike riders enjoy their safety in numbers and rule Oakland's arterial streets...for one evening per year at the present.

    Get your wheels blinged-out, skip the Frisco Mass, and instead, meet up at 5pm at the Mac Dre Mural next to Fremont High School, High & Foothill. This ride is sponsored by Oakland's Silence the Violence organization.
