Bike News Glut

This is what I get for not checking my RSS feed for a few days.

More folding bikes on London trains are creating more rush-hour resentment. I love this quote:

"A Brompton folding bicycle, it's the bowler hat of modern commuting"

From WEEK-TV in Illinois, "Please Don’t Squeeze" – starts today and is funded by a grant from the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) Division of Traffic Safety to the League of Illinois Bicyclists (LIB). The radio campaign aims to educate drivers about the new law requiring motorists to give bicyclists at least three feet of space when passing.

The Denver Post discusses Share the Road license plates, Bicycle Colorado and gives some handy advice on riding safely.

In central Texas, the King's Daughters Clinic and Texas Medical Association are teaming up to give away 700 helmets and 4 bicycles to boys and girls in the community.

Green Bay Cyclist builds "Franken-bike" while volunteering in New Orleans and decided to ride it home. Cool video.

From Charlotte, NC: With gas prices up, you'd think more people would be out on their bicycles for their commute.

"Not so, says Ethan Grossman, who opened Black Sheep Cycles three years ago."

The LA Times has a nice article about the Trek Lime.

And with 136 stories to go, I'm giving up and marking them all as "read."
