Stop Your Whining

Right. Have a look at this photo from Tommy Nelson on Flickr.

Now I really don't want to hear anybody's excuses about "oh, it's a bit too chilly to ride today..." or "the weather report calls for drizzle... I'll take the car..."

When I see a photo like this, no excuses seem to do.

On your bikes, the lot of you.

And check this out... a little film from Trondheim, Norway. We posted about a proposed bike tunnel in the town of Bodø, and this is another marriage of tech and bike. Built in 1993, it's the world's first bike lift - sykkelheis - in Norwegian.

We're not quite sure what to think about it. We like initative. We like new thinking in regards to bike culture. But that hill doesn't look that nasty. But hey, if it gets more Trondheimians on their bike, then so be it.
