A Cafe Where You Can Ride Your Bike On The Roof
The roof of this bike rental shop and cafe in southern China is actually a functioning cycling track. And it’s climate-appropriate, too.

Canadian winters are tough; it’s no wonder why every year ‘sun bird’ cyclists fly south to Arizona to escape the cold.
We might not live in igloos, but the stereotype of the long Canadian winter is pretty accurate for most cyclists north of the 49th parallel. During the winter months in Arizona it’s warm, it’s dry and it has some great road cycling routes. In fact, cycling is one of Arizona’s main draws, so there are many routes throughout the state that are marked specifically for this abundance of road riders.

Cycling stories

By: Bogdan Fink

Not all cycling teams are purely commercial entities
Adria Mobil is a Slovenian pro cycling team and I am its manager. We are a Continental team with ambition to become ProContinental so on the surface, we’re not so very different to lots of others. However, our story is different, and probable unique.

 Spinning Class

My First Spin Class
Tonight I finally made it out to an indoor spinning session with Speed River Cycling Club. I was a little worried because I don’t have a stationary type bike trainer and I wasn’t sure how it would work out on rollers. I decided not to clip in… which turned out to be a good move since I did slip off the trainer 3 or 4 times.

How to Start Bike Racing
Getting more kids to ride to school is a key success predictor of any country’s cycling future – and indeed obesity rates. As a European Commissioner stated: ”One might say that Europe (Australia!) faces a choice. Do we want to pursue an American-style approach where kids depend on their parents to take them to school for many years?

Back country roads, rolling hills, vineyards and stunning views!
The Niagara Escarpment is a range of hills created by the last glacier and is characterized by steep hills. Niagara Falls, on the river between Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, is the most spectacular feature of the escarpment. I was at Halton region in October to explore the area on the bike.

My Thanksgiving weekend in the Halton Hills region
I’m thankful this last Thanksgiving weekend I spent in the area of Halton Hills, close to Campbellville, Ontario. My goal for Thanksgiving long weekend was far from anything ‘turkey related’. Instead, it was to meet my newborn grand-daughter Sophie and to ride the bike until my legs give-out, since winter doom was fast approaching. Plus, riding is the best way to check out October fall colors in the area!

 Wandering Albania

Leisure Cycling

Sastavila: Snežana Radojičić

First Kilometers in Albania
We were excited about crossing into Albania as if we were crossing into another world. The first sights greeting us along the Bojana river coast were an absolute contrast to the bling and opulence of the Montenegrin coast that we had left behind. Driving towards Skadar through Albanian villages and small towns we were struck by poverty – ugly, dirty, smelly poverty, the kind you would expect to see in Africa or Asian countries, but not in Europe.

Have bike, will travel… Zdenko hits the road in Costa Rica!
This year we went to visit Costa Rica for the first time. Visiting Costa Rica is like nowhere else in the tropical Americas. I had an awesome road biking holiday there in a vibrant and fertile Central American paradise, blessed with a pleasant and hot tropical climate and an abundance of natural beauty.

Bicycling renaissance in North America – cycling trends and policies
Pucher et al recently examined cycling trends in North America,1,2 detailing cycling rates, funding and safety over the last two decades. The authors also explored bicycling trends, policies and safety in three large Canadian cities (Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver) and six large cities in the USA (Portland, Minneapolis, San Francisco, Chicago, Washington and New York). Understanding the elements of initiatives that led to the cities’ success in promoting cycling may provide valuable examples for other cities.
