Just love this photo. Separates the flesh for speed that a rider must become and realigns the human to the heart of his family.

“The source of much driver contempt toward cyclists is a basic cognitive bias called the fundamental attribution error.”
— Eric Jaffee looking at why we’re seeing growing levels of frustration directed to cyclists in CityLab (via cadenced)
“We were concerned to hear about the cycle lanes that have not only failed to increase safety for cyclists, but were in some cases more dangerous than cycling on the carriageway. In too many cases our cycling infrastructure not only fails to protect cyclists, but also treats cycling as an add-on to roads – an optional extra to be added if there was spare space, rather than a valid mode of transport, as entitled as motor vehicles to space on the road.”
Transport Committee - Third Report Cycling Safety and quoted in Peter Walker’s analysis of the report in The Guardian (via cadenced)

I sat down in the field for a long time, and all I saw was wheat and a pretty sky. It was beautiful and peaceful, and it felt so far removed from bad. And yet, Verdun was only a couple kilometers away. My imagination is thankfully not good enough to conjure up an image of this place a century ago. #tdf
