Tour de Bicycling Blogs 8

Ladies, and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, Cyclists, and non-cyclists!

Welcome to the 8th edition of The Tour de Bicycling Blogs!

Do U Bicycle?

There are a growing number of Bloggers with sites dedicated to the proposition that bike riding is good for you and fun.

In various ways we all provide commentary, and opinion, reports about events, and news, write reviews, stories, and travelogues, share photographs, and spread the word about the wide variety of websites of interest to anyone who rides a bike.

BikeBloggers spread the word, and the word is BICYCLE!

This ongoing series is about bicycling, and bicyclists... Recreational Bicyclists, Bike Commuters, and Activists.

It is about those of us whose blogs are devoted to writing about our bicycling escapades, and about anything else cycling related that catches our attention.

Expect to read my own thoughts about some, or all, of what I bring to your attention.

Let's saddle up, and ride!

1. Wheels of Justice ( Au. ):

Showcasing a video of an Ad in a TV campaign to help foster greater respect between motorists and bicycle riders.

The link  in the story takes you to the Foundation website, but I was not able to see the whole video.

While you are there take a look around the website.

Watch the Amy Gillett Foundation’s TV commercial

2. Wheel Revolution (OR.):

Ride your Bike, make a Smoothie?

Okaaayy..... ;-D

Ride of the Bike Smoothie.

3. Velorution:

Financial Times columnist, Lucy Kellaway, gets wordy about the joys of Bicycling.

It's a very nice piece. ;-D

Effortless conversion.

4. Two Cities Two wheels ( St. Paul, MN. ):

A series of posts about a cyclist using the Drive-thru at the Bank.

This reminds successes, and failures, I've had when using the drive-thru of fast food joints.

Wells Fargo Refuses Drive-Through Service.

Wells Fargo Takes My Money.

Wells Fargo Refuses My Email.

Serious Transportation.

Wells Fargo First Communications.

Be there NEXT WEEK for the next thrilling episode of... Matt vs. Wells Fargo!. ;-D

5. Treadly and Me ( Australia ):

Is the Bike Courier an endangered species?

The Economist seems to think so... maybe.

Bike Courier = Endangered Species.

6. Tournez a gauche:

Tips for Riding in the Heat.

7. From the City to Suburbia ( Irvine, Ca. ):

I have always wondered what it would be like to take part in a fledgling Critical Mass. Last night I stopped wondering. I joined a group of about 25 for the monthly Costa Mesa Critical Mass.

Rocco writes about his visit to the Beach, and his encounter with the local Critical Mass, in a piece he calls "Critical Mass is a beach!"

Well, hell, I could have told him THAT! Oh, wait, he wrote BEACH, my mistake! ;-D

A great piece about riding in our region, and how this CM compared to what he his so used to up in San Francisco.

Nice collection of stuff as always. The TV commercial is a bad link.

Hotter than blazes in the Bay Area. I hear it's pretty hot down in your area too.

Temps in the OC have been over 100 all week, and yesterday it was a record 105 here in Santa Ana.

In LA County, some cities got as high as 115 in the outlying areas.

Any plans I'd had for cycling on my vacation were set aside.

Temps will be like this next week as well.

Though we did have a break today with a noisy, and wet, thunderstorm, spending the morning in the OC.
