Bike, run or walk

As someone who walks a fair amount, at least on my lunch hour at work, I thought I would continue on this path by posting an article entitled “9 Great Things Walkers and Bikers Know about Their Communities that You Don’t” by Starre Vartan at Mother Nature Network.

Bike to the future

So while I love everything green, I’ve also have a love for history and so this article sort of combines the two just a bit. Since I’ve also been trying to restore my bike, it includes that too.

The article is about a bicycle highway in England that was actually established back in the 1930’s and is entitled “280 Miles of Hidden British Bike Paths Rediscovered on Google Street View” by Matt Hickman over at Mother Nature Network.

Biking through Paris

Okay, I’ve been to Paris and I’ve definitely biked but never have I biked in Paris. That said, it seems like Paris is way ahead of us when it comes to biking and the roads.

The city I live in has some bike roads but the one thing I’ve noticed is that not everyone reads the directions the same way. To stop or not to stop at a red light, signaling to turn or even which side of the road to bike on.

According to this article, “City of Paris to let cyclists go through (some) red lights” by Lloyd Alter over at Treehugger, the Parisians are making an attempt. At this point, I need to make an attempt to get my biking working again. The last time I road it was probably sixteen years ago, the age of my oldest son.
