The man who cycled the world

Had not seen this series before and I have to say that it is quite impressive. Even though it would not be my way of travelling the world (by bike yes, but not this fast). Have a look!

The big picture - Pedal Power

Have a look at these (almost 50!) great pictures at!
(Thanx Katrien, for the link)

Quoted from the site: "For well over a hundred years, people have hopped on bicycles for transportation, recreation, competition, and more. In many parts of the world, spinning pedals moves goods and generates electricity. While usually attached to two wheels, pedal power takes many forms, adapting to a wide range of needs. Globally, over 100 million bicycles are produced every year - over 60% of them in China - easily doubling world production of automobiles. Efficient, clean, and cheap, pedal power in all its forms can solve modern problems with basic technology, and offers a health benefit to those cranking away. And it's hard to beat the simple joy of riding a bike. Gathered here are images of people around the world as we pedal for a reason, or just because".

Best bicycle to car ratio ever

No need for words ...

I feel good

Yet another advantage of the bicycle!? Note the woman in the car when she says: "next time we will take the bicycle again". I guess the message is that it does feel good to ride a bike.

Cycling with Rutte

For weeks now, coalition partners of our (dutch) government have been negotiating about new plans and (financial) cuts. I am quite sceptical about this existing government and its destructive policy. However, there is one positive thing to tell. Our prime Minister Mark Rutte has been going to these negotiating talks by bike almost every day. This has captured quite some attention and I guess is helpful to promote the bicycle as an alternative to other, more poluting means of transport. At least on this point a good example has been set.
Click here for the article in NRC and more pictures.
