1. Today's The Planet newsletter has pictures of my village, where cyclists mostly have their own roads as you often see in the Netherlands.

Here they are warned to slow down at a crossing.

A short thread 🧵

3. In the main street of the village, there are horse chestnuts everywhere.

Do you pick them up or leave them on the ground?

How it started... how it's going... #cycling #cyclinglife
My first cycling computer and my current one.
Sigma BC 301 vs Garmin Edge 1030 Plus Sigma BC 301Garmin Edge 1030 Plus
My first and my last Polar. The workout data could be read from the device via infrared. With the S725 you could set a 15sec recording interval.
Polar CS 200(cad) vs Polar S725X Polar CS 200Polar S725X
The SRM PowerControl 6 (VI) was my bike computer after the Polar S725. Here was a recording interval of 1sec possible. SRM PowerControl 6 (PC 7) was also great and the current SRM PowerControl 8 (PC 8) is still in use. SRM PC7SRM PC8SRM PC6

Meine Mobilitäts-Geschichte. Achtung, lang!

Würde man meinen alten Freundeskreis fragen, würde dieser mich wohl eindeutig als Auto-Person bezeichnen.
Denke ich jedoch an meine Mobilität seit meinem 18. Geburtstag, war das Auto nur so lange relevant wie ich auf dem Dorf...
gewohnt habe. Zur Schule, Wehrdienst (ja, so alt bin ich schon 🤭), dann Ausbildung und Arbeitsstelle in die nächste Stadt (15 km), alles mit dem Auto. Das Auto war ein gebrauchter Astra F, der, als ich ihn für einen Fuffi an den Exporteur verkaufte, 14 Jahre alt war und ...
230.000 km runter hatte.
Ich wechselte den Job, jetzt 50 km entfernt, und gönnte mir ein "richtiges" Auto. Seat Leon FR, 201 PS, sportlich, LPG-Anlage, knallgelb. Jeden Tag mindestens 100 km pendeln für 1,5 Jahre.
Private Änderungen brachten es mit sich, dass ich dann näher ...

#B4063 @GlosCC 'Signature' Glos-Chelt cycle route proposal. This will be slow thread analysing each element.

#B4063 But doesn't LTN1/20 say minimum at 'constraints' of 2m? Yes, but constraint is "where there is a physical constraint on an existing road." c44% of the 3.6 mile route is only 2 metres wide, inc. where ample spare road space. It's narrowest at busiest sections as well. (2/x) A section of road illustrat...

A better thread of #wintermaintenance of #Oulu 🇫🇮 main #bicycle routes: General info, quality requirements, control & implementation. Oulu shows you can maintain your #cycling infra round the year even in extreme conditions. Where there’s will, there’s a bike path! 1/x
It’s a bit unusual joint contract with two municipalities @oulunkaupunki & @KempeleenKunta and state road adminstration @POPELYkeskus. Due to joint contract, the area borders will show no quality variations or other visible deviations. #MeanwhileinOulu 2/x
This contract consists of 125 km of most important regional routes. Many of them are connections to/from #Oulu city center, but there are also important ring routes and areal paths. The total amount of bike paths in #Oulu region is over 1000 km, naturally maintained as well. 3/x

The U.S. has ~300 cities whose population exceeds 100K. Most of them have "buffered" (by PAINT: 0 protection) bike lanes, with the (car) #parking lane along the curb. SWITCH the bike & parked car lane, and you'd have traffic-calming and a MUCH safer #cycling experience. @PBOTinfo
I cannot stand seeing streets that are "improved" for "cyclists" by putting a wide bike lane *between* parked and moving cars. #Portland's N Denver Ave is a classic example. SWITCH the bike lane & car #parking lane; it solves many issues simultaneously! /2
Biking between the curb and parked cars means that there's almost *zero* car movement around you, outside of intersections. Door-zone biking is nearly eliminated--and if a passenger door does open, you're not thrown into car traffic. /3

The most ridiculous article ever on #Cycling in #London appeared in the increasingly absurd Tory Weekly, The @spectator ... by Paul Burke. (@paulburkeradio) - an advertising copywriter.

And it's just so laughable it deserves a thread to debunk it's idiocy. Image
@spectator @paulburkeradio "Of course cycling is inherently right-wing"

He's not even trying to be ironic. He means it.

The 'Right Wing' can claim to ownership of many activities .. cycling is not one of them.

I have no data either way but my experience is that cyclists tend to be centre or left-ish. Image
@spectator @paulburkeradio Cyclists apparently "terrorise motorists with violently bright and flashing lights .."

Not ever seen this. Ever..

Perhaps he means legally safe, approved and recommended lighting, ideal for catching the attention distracted car drivers on their phones .... Image

Bike is back from repairs so it's time for a Leicester city cycle tour, first one in a while. Also first winter ride of my adult life I think! The gloves went back in the bag after the first hill however.
#leicester #cycling #cycleinfra #ActiveTravel
This is the A563/A5630 Anstey Lane rbt. Despite Leics CC recently upgrading it, only one arm is signalised although the cycle route crosses at least two. 3 lanes of busy traffic on each arm. Less confident or mobile users have absolutely no chance.
Towards Strasbourg Dr the path goes behind the bund. Like most New Town developments more land was used to futureproof the ring road. Now it makes a reasonable path along with 70s segregated track heading into the estate

1⃣ People want LTNs and cycle lanes, and opposition has been inflated.

People overestimate other people’s opposition to walking and cycling infrastructure. Concerns about new infrastructure are quickly overcome when people see the benefits.
2⃣ LTNs & cycle lanes reduce congestion.

Studies have shown that installing LTNs results in some people driving fewer trips, combining multiple trips into one, travelling at a less congested time or switching to public transport, walking or cycling.
3⃣ #LTNs and cycle lanes are good for business.

Our #PedestrianPound research shows footfall increases 20-35% on streets where the pedestrian experience has been improved.

For well-designed projects, sales can increase by 30% when footfall is boosted.

Today in pulp... I look back at Raleigh bikes: the most exciting bikes on the planet! #ThursdayMotivation #cycling
Raleigh was the all steel bike that defined a generation of cyclists: for many it was their first introduction to the joys - and perils - of cycling!
The brand was named after Sir Walter Raleigh - inventor of the cigarette. And it was built in Nottingham - home of the cigarette. So obviously everyone who rode one smoked...

Nine facts about #ActiveTravel #LTNs #walking #cycling

Fact 1: 75% of people would like to see more money spent on cycling in their city.
The types of infrastructure people would find most useful are segregated on-road tracks (64%) and traffic- free cycling routes (60%).
Fact 2: Cycle lanes move more people than car lanes.
A three-metre wide lane can move 700 to 1,100 people per hour in cars, whereas for bicycles and walking this increases to 2000 to 6,500.
Fact 3: Walkers and cyclists spend more in shops.
Retailers overestimate how many of their customers travel by car by a factor of 100%.
Per square metre, cycle parking delivers five-times higher retail spend than the same area of car parking.

(2/7) As is well-known, riding in peloton is aerodynamically more advantageous than riding in single paceline. Quantified here. Average drag in peloton is about half that in single paceline.
