“Cheating” Never Felt So Good! Peter Sagan vs. Grandma Joan

Yes it’s an ad. No Specialized didn’t pay us to feature them. Yes it’s brilliant.

“One hill climb in San Francisco to determine the fastest cyclist on the planet. In this corner, we have Peter Sagan: three-time World Champion, Paris-Roubaix winner, and all around badass. In the opposing corner, we have Grandma Joan: near-centenarian, two knee replacements, pacemaker…and a Specialized Turbo e-bike…”

What Cities Can Learn From The Giant Free Lunch That Is Dockless Bike/Scooter Sharing

Historically, the expansion of humanity’s horizons has often been paid for by the public. As Neil deGrass Tyson often points out, governments have frequently bankrolled endeavors whose costs were very high and whose risks were unknown such as such as long sea voyages or space exploration. These ventures mapped out the risks, learned by trial and error, innovated, and subsequently paved the way for commercial ventures.

Want To Solve Urban Mobility? Do The Complete Opposite Of What Elon Proposes – Part 1

Over the last decade, Elon Musk has been crying out his solution to urban mobility from the mountaintops. His vision is replacing our polluting, fossil fuel based cars with electrified cars and replacing (very) fallible human drivers with machine learning algorithms. At first glance, not terrible ideas.

Now having lived in Los Angeles for the past few years, he’s noticed another problem with our urban mobility: traffic. So he has another solution: tunnels. Lots of them.

His solutions are dead on. That is if you take his ideas and do the exact opposite!

The Astonishing Healing Powers Of The Bicycle And Human Spirit

“The people who hadn’t been talking in years had started talking again.

People suffering from dementia would lose their aggressions and actually lift the spirit at the nursing home upon returning from their bike rides.
