Signs Installed For New Countywide Bicycle Wayfinding Program

Press release from Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission:

Oct. 9, 2020

As part of the new Santa Cruz County Bicycle Route Signage Program, the Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) recently completed the installation of bicycle wayfinding signage at 303 locations throughout the county. The signs, part of an effort to increase bicycle ridership and safety in the county, will assist all types of bicycle riders – commuters, families, recreational riders and visitors – in finding and accessing major destinations throughout the county. The revised routing of the long-distance Pacific Coast Route has also been signed.

Previously, there were few and inconsistent bicycle wayfinding signs in Santa Cruz County, so the RTC worked with community partners to identify and sign preferred routes that have connectivity to bicycle lanes or paths. The new signage will improve traffic safety by leading cyclists to better routes. The preferred routes include fully

Bicycle Crunch Proper Form: Here’s How to Nail It

When it comes to working the oblique muscles, trainers love turning to the bicycle crunch exercise.

In this week’s episode of The Right Way, Well+Good’s YouTube series that dives into exercise move fundamentals, Copeland reveals the four major form mistakes that she sees people make in the staple core move, all of which sabotage your ab work.

Electric bicycle sales are higher than ever, but it’s created a new problem

While the COVID-19 pandemic shook the world and the e-bike industry with it, the pandemic also led to a huge surge in electric bicycle sales.

Nearly every company that offered electric bicycles soon found themselves with empty shelves and warehouses.

Between people being at home with more time on their hands, riders exiting lockdowns and itching to spend more time outdoors, and commuters looking for socially distant ways to get to work while avoiding public transportation, e-bike sales have never been higher.

But now that’s created a new problem in the industry: supporting all of those customers.

Large e-bike companies who count their customer base in the thousands and tens of thousands were already tasked with managing a carefully orchestrated customer service balance.

But now those systems have been pushed past the breaking point as countless new riders receive bike boxes at their doorstep, a small portion of which inevitably

UC Davis Professor Emeritus Struck, Killed While Riding Bicycle In Yolo County

DAVIS (CBS13) — A professor emeritus at UC Davis has died after she was struck while riding a bicycle out near Davis.

The California Highway Patrol said, just after 10 a.m. Wednesday, a car was headed up County Road 100A in Yolo County north of Davis when a bicyclist reportedly crossed from a private road directly into the path of the vehicle.

The driver hit his brakes and veered to the left to try and avoid the bicyclist, investigators say, but it was too late.

Medics pronounced the bicyclist, a 77-year-old Davis woman, dead at the scene.

The name of the bicyclist was not released by CHP, but she has been identified by the Davis Enterprise as Marilyn Olmstead, a chemistry professor emeritus at UC Davis.

The Yolo County Coroner’s Office and UC Davis both later confirmed that it was, in fact, Olmstead who died.

Three years after China’s blooming bike-sharing economy wilted, local authorities are about to send the last of 25 million abandoned bicycles to recycling plants, pruning the remaining blight on cityscapes left behind by dozens of companies that have gone bust.

All the disused bicycles must be scrapped by the year’s end under a compulsory retirement scheme imposed by city councils to ensure safety. The costs of taking them off the streets and the bicycle graveyards are borne by taxpayers, as all but three remain from a crop of as many as 70 bike-sharing companies, each plying China’s streets with a different brightly coloured vehicle.

“Most bicycle graveyards have already gone,” said Wu Guoyong, a Shenzhen photographer who made a name for himself by using aerial drones to shoot dramatic pictures of abandoned bicycles piled into little mountains in almost every

Bicycle mechanic can’t stop tinkering – News – The Topeka Capital-Journal

NEWTON – Bicycles have been part of Everett Bradley’s life for as long as he could remember. One of the first things he saved up to buy for himself was a bicycle — he spent about $15.

“My first bike, I bought at 10 years old after mowing lawns,” Bradley said. “We had to do what we could to patch them together. Everywhere we went, we went on our bicycles.”

One of his first jobs was in a K-Mart, assembling Huffy bicycles. There, the emphasis was on speed and just making sure all the parts were where they were supposed to be.

But Bradley, who now works for Prairie View, liked to tinker.

Later on he went on to work for John Hobbs at a bicycle shop in downtown Newton — a shop that closed several years ago. That, at the time, could have been the end of Bradley’s tinkering
