youngmanhattanite: My Flag is on Fire: “White Bicycle” Reno band My Flag is on Fire produced a video for their song “White Bicycle,” from their album Europa Song, in which indie folk meets an expansiveness. Much of the video is filmed in Lincoln Lounge, a Reno bar aggressively decorated with Abraham Lincoln memorabilia, where I saw my friend Louis play his last show before he moved to South...
placesweusedtogo: I know my New Year’s resolution was to see a cat riding a bicycle—and that still stands, mind you—but I’m wondering if I should add “get out of Brooklyn and the media entirely and start a successful catamaran/rum swizzles business in Bermuda, leaving my computer behind forever” to the list, but then I remembered Bloomberg lives in Bermuda too and FOILED AGAIN BY NEW YORK. So,...

viewsfromthebus: The American rite of passage of getting a car for your 16th birthday may be over. Young folks these days aren’t that interested in driving. Try getting them a bicycle. Time was, not having a car meant you were a loser (see TLC’s 1999 hit “No Scrubs”). But the idea of the car as a requisite…

viewsfromthebus: this TEDx conference video looks at an interesting opinion on the harm bicycle helmets do to ” bike culture”.
rendit: Three Capitol Police bike cops riding west in a v down a deserted M Street at Wisconsin smiling at each other, oblivious to the rest of the world like it’s a gym ad or a syndicated mid-90s action drama cheesecake program about bike cops in the mold of Baywatch. I always have the urge to body snark the NYPD into having more of a bike presence.

viewsfromthebus: Seems like every time I post a bicycle related post there are a few angry, f-bomb filled replies and/or rebloggs. Hate is more often an adjective used to vent these folks frustrations with the two wheeled peddler. It’s what I like to call “off road rage” and it’s a little creepy. Especially when…
Delightful Cycles: Helmet choice →
delightfulcycles: yes it should be up to the rider whether or not he or she thinks a helmet is necessary. a recent survey came to this conclusion: “there was an inverse association between riding frequency and support of the helmet legislation: the non-riders were most likely to support helmet legislation and more frequent riders less likely to support it.
