Biking the Freeze Where You Live

It’s time for another Streetsblog Network slide show. This time, we asked to see your pictures of people biking in snow and cold. Once again, you came through, big time.

Some of the photos make cycling in winter look divine. Others make it look brave. All of them prove that a drop in temperature is no reason to leave the bike at home.

Enjoy, and be inspired.

Thanks to all who sent in submissions: Dottie at Let’s Go Ride a Bike, Ellie Kingsbury, Dave Feucht of Portlandize, BicyclesOnly, Colin Murphy, Swany, Michael Kodransky of ITDP Europe, Transportation Alternatives, M.V. Jantzen, Xander N’Dante, Scott Redd, Sebastian Niehaus, Randy Rasa, Mike Lydon of The Street Plans Collaborative, Mitchell Nussbaum, Ryan Kucera and Dave Johnson.

You guys are terrific.

For People of Color, Barriers to Biking Go Far Beyond Infrastructure, Study Shows

|
When most cities try to make biking a bigger part of their transportation systems, they use a standard checklist: comfortable biking networks, how-to-ride classes, traffic-law enforcement. The full list is sometimes called the “Five E’s.” A first-of-its-kind survey conducted by Rutgers academics Charles Brown and James Sinclair shows that when you look at biking from the perspective of a Black or Latino American, the Five E’s are missing a lot.
