Easy or extreme As Dutch people, you could say we were born to cycle. A relaxed ride through the valley or a challenging mountain bike tour with a good steep bit, we love it all. So when we found ourselves in the mountains, biking was naturally at the top of our list One thing is for sure: Additionally, the valley’s summer mountain lifts came up with made to measure packages for all-mountain bikers. Bicycle transport is available in the following holiday resorts: All-mountain riders can indulge in no less than 5 kilometers of the Alps’ finest single trails on a total distance of some 25 kilometers.

The Department for Transport will look at whether a new offence equivalent to causing death by careless or dangerous driving should be introduced for cyclists.
The news caused a heavy debate between road users on our Facebook page. Cyclists were quick to point out the risks faced by cyclists from impatient motorists – and drivers hit back with claims of dangerous manoeuvres and a lack of thought from those on a bike.
Government planners fanned out along Spring Garden Street on Thursday to consider replacing its median with a bicycle pathway. Armed with clipboards and checklists, the federal, state, and local.
The myth around cyclists riding single file by Shannon Molloy 0 There’s little love lost between most motorists and cyclists in Australia, and drivers have a long list of gripes about how some riders behave. A campaign by news. But perhaps the biggest issue people on four wheels have surrounds the practice of cyclists riding two abreast on the open road. The feeling is that riders jutting out into the lane is dangerous and there’s also a perception among many that it’s illegal.
Before this death, Mr Frewer – a campaigner for greater awareness of safe pass laws , requiring motorists to leave at least 1m when passing a bike – spoke about riding two abreast. The year-old father-of-three from the Sunshine Coast even produced a video about it, using footage captured from his front and rear cameras, to demonstrate why it’s good practice.
Cameron Frewer is being lovingly remembered by the national cycling community for his tireless efforts in promoting safety awareness.
Cyclists and drivers in Doncaster have among best relationship in the country, study finds
Nov 21, Is riding with headphones really such a big deal? America is a strange place. From bloomers to hip hop to the iPhone, we’ve been the driving force of cultural change for much of the world. At the same time, we can be profoundly uptight—and there are few things we’re more uptight about than riding bikes. Granted, we mostly get cycling as an athletic pursuit, but we’re considerably less comfortable when confronted with people riding bikes who appear to be
Duncan Dollimore, head of campaigns at Cycling UK, said PCF was a ‘tremendous example’ of cyclists engaging with a local authority in a ‘constructive manner’.
Do you have a secret to riding well? I actually hate competition. The inaugural TCR was my first experience with ultra racing, but to me it was just a ride. I ride my own ride. I listen to my body. During the Indy Pac, I was only sleeping about an hour a night, and I started seeing strange animals on the road and hearing strange noises. Everything went into slow motion, and I wondered what was reality. I eat a lot of ice cream—ten to 12 bars a day is pretty standard.
What were one or two of your favorite rides? Some of my favorite rides have been close to home.

As the dark autumnal mornings and evenings close in, Northumbria Police has issued safety advice to cyclists. A spokesman said: “It’s a legal requirement for cyclists to have lights and reflectors fitted if they’re travelling on a public road after dark.
Type 2 Clydesdale Cyclist Type 2 Diabetic. The bicyclists are enjoying unprecedented success with bike lanes and bike parking. Jannette Sadik-Khan , the city’s aggro Bicycle Commissioner is kicking ass. Bike advocates say it’s all about their rights, but Sadik-Khan says it’s all about safety – and she has the numbers to prove it. New York’s Finest regard the Critical Mass rides as intentional disturbances somewhere between civil disobedience and anarchy. The city’s recent focus on statistical policing using software called CompStat generates numerical ticketing quotas goals for police officers, and ticketing cyclists is a relatively easy way to make their numbers.
There’s been some public pushback against the new bike lanes. Cyclists demand that police enforce the bike lanes. People who park delivery trucks in the bike lanes are upset to get tickets from the police. That’s not all; there’s the Hipster War. Hassidic Jews have had bike lanes removed because they contend female cyclists, dressed in shorts, skirts, and spandex, are inappropriate. Bicycle advocates came back in the middle of the night and repainted the bike lanes.
The police have probably had enough of bicyclists, and that frustration is expressed in a variety of ways, some clever and some ridiculous.

The ‘basta buche’ enough holes appeal was launched by mother Graziella Viviano, whose year-old daughter died in a motorcycle accident Viviano says was caused by the poor road conditions. On social media and in an open letter published in the Corriere della Sera , she called on people to use spray paint to draw attention to hazards such as potholes and tree roots — both to alert road users to potential dangers and to push city authorities to act.
Viviano sprays and marks with an ‘E’ the pothole which she says was responsible for her daughter Elena’s death. Since her appeal, dozens of images of people painting the potholes have been shared on social media. The below image was shared on Facebook by Luciano Benedetti, who said he had previously fallen into the same pothole while on his own bike.
A spokesman for Lancashire County Council said: “We are keen to encourage all people, whether they are cyclists, horse riders or pedestrians, to get out and about to enjoy Lancashire’s beautiful.
Unique new road signs will also warn drivers to give cyclists space to prevent them being forced to cross tram lines at dangerously sharp angles. Three new turning lanes, with red chips embedded in the surface, will be installed there. The city council said the measures were being considered before the incident, although not at that location.
Similar surfacing will be added to cycle lanes in Haymarket Yards. They are designed to guide cyclists to cross tracks at an angle of 45 to 90 degrees. The crossings will be accompanied by new-style signs, which have to be approved by the Scottish Government, warning drivers to give cyclists space beside and in front of them.
The Daily Illini
The last time I looked, cycling on the footpath, unless on a designated cycle lane, was illegal. I have nothing against cyclists per se except those cycle clubs that go out on country lanes on Sundays, take up the room of an articulated lorry, and won’t let cars pass them — they should pay road tax. I sometimes cycle myself, but I wouldn’t dream of inconven-iencing pedestrians by riding on the pavement.
I know it can sometimes be quite hairy riding on the roads, but most of them are quite wide enough, and some even have cycle lanes. I have even seen people with prams have to go into the road to get out of the way of some thoughtless riders. It is only a matter of time before someone gets hurt, either a pedestrian hit by a cyclist or a car, or a cyclist knocked off their bike and into the path of a speeding truck, and no-one wants that to happen.

Driver showed no remorse: Cyclist killer jailed WHEN Ken Altoft was hit and killed by a car while working on the Bruce Highway, close friend and fellow cyclist, Dave Fellows struggled to come to terms with the tragedy. The death had a profound effect on him. The two men shared similar beliefs, lifestyles and family environments. You’d struggle to find anyone who had something negative to say about Ken,” Dave said.
With that has come a lot of goodwill which has risen and emerged, and wrapped itself around everybody. That has since stopped. By his own admission, Dave now rides solo a lot more and uses that time to reflect. Ken was hit and killed while working as a traffic controller on the Bruce Highway in Contributed A pragmatic man, Dave wanted something positive to come from the heartache. He established The Good Wheel Foundation, a unique charity based on what it means to be ‘a good wheel’.
Riders are often referred to by the quality of the wheel they present to those behind. There are bad wheels, average wheels and good wheels. A good wheel is easy to follow – consistent and reliable.
‘Tinder without clothes’: New dating site lets Brits post nude photos for dates
But participants said what is otherwise a fun social gathering on two wheels was spoiled by a small number being rude to fellow cyclists and motorists and creating unsafe situations, including riding on sidewalks and crossing the line to face oncoming vehicles. There was littering along the way and some participants consumed open alcohol they had brought with them. Hired guides — there were eight on Friday, said Ciotoli — help lead the way and control the flow and some basic rules are explained before departure.
The noodle, as you can see above, sticks out a couple feet to the side of the bike to give drivers a visual indicator of how far away they should stay.
Brisbane Brisbane cyclists believe they’re the victims of “mantraps”, after damaging their bikes on handfuls of thumbtacks spread out along their favourite riding spots this past month. There have been at least four instances throughout February where cyclists riding throughout Wynnum, Manly and Birkdale have punctured their tyre after riding over thumbtacks on the ground. In the worst case, a group of cyclists came across thumbtacks glued to a strip of metal and left on the ground.
Tracey Yatras and her husband were on a Sunday cycle through the area this past weekend when both suffered punctured tyres from thumbtacks spread out “along a three-metre stretch”. Ms Yatras and her husband both suffered punctured tyres during their Sunday ride. Tracey Yatras “We were riding along, come out of a side street and came back onto the main road which is Birkdale Road and on the verge there, and I said to my husband, ‘you have a flat tyre’,” Ms Yatras said.
Anybody could be hurt. I’ve seen elderly people on their tricycles ride down there as well. Laith Beveridge, owner of Cranks Bicycle Garage, said his wife and a friend were riding in a group when one cyclists caught the trap in his back wheel. It could’ve locked up and caused an accident,” Mr Beveridge said. He said it was disappointing to see so many recent incidents in the local area.
It’s unlikely it was a coincidence. Another cyclist had their tyre punctured by a tack along the Esplanade in Manly in late February.
Pedal Safety Song
Christian Freer, 42, was coming home from the laundrette when he said one of the cyclists came dangerously close to hitting his car at around 1pm on August 3. As the two briefly argued, the other cyclist came from behind and threw an orange liquid at Christian. While the liquid is believed to have been a sports drink, Christian was alarmed by what was then an unknown fluid and said he got out to grab hold of the man.
One of his attackers then began to punch Christian in the face with what he fears was a knuckle duster, knocking him to the floor and causing fractures and a break in his cheekbone and damage to his nose. Christian was driving his car when he came across two cyclists Christian told the Mercury he could not see if he was hit with anything more than a naked fist, but doctors told him his injury was not typical of a simple punch.
The damage is quite horrific.
The CTC negotiated special rates for cyclists, and in it began placing 2ft diameter cast iron circular plaques on establishments that had its seal of approval.
Christopher Moore, 33, of Page Street, was charged with two counts of felony hit and run, authorities said. Authorities said four cyclists were traveling toward Old Apex Road when a vehicle driving in the same direction ran over two of them. Another man called to report that a man in maroon Saturn stopped in his neighborhood to discard a bike that was on the hood of his car. Both were taken to WakeMed with serious injuries, but their conditions weren’t known Wednesday.
The two other cyclists were not injured. The group of four cyclists had met before their evening ride at Cycling Spoken Here in Cary, where people were heartbroken Tuesday about the hit-and-run. They ride quite a bit nowadays. So, I don’t want to see anything happen to them either.
