#Unblock Bike Lanes - Petro's Bread Distributers

Want to see what happens when a truck from Petro's Bread Distributers blocks a bike lane? 



Thanks a lot Petro's, keep on trucking.

Friday Funnies - Safe Driving

Two in a series of safe cycling and safe driving commercials created in Norway



The text at the end reads; For those who do not have nine lives -- 

share the road


And one for people who drive cars. In my local supermarket I have

 seen all of this.




Enjoy your weekend and good luck getting the song in the first video out of your head. Its pretty infectious.

Hal Ruzal 2014

Over the years Hal Ruzal, bike mechanic and co-founder of New York City bike shop Bike Planet, created a series of videos grading people in New York City on how well they have locked their bikes. I posted two of the videos here.

Now he has a new video out and as usual he is at his finest, even when recognized by tourists. Have people gotten better about locking their bikes? You'll have to see for yourself. My personal favorite as the fixie that got a “D”. I see plenty of bikes like this and I am never surprised when I see them stripped.
