Friday Round-Up: Bring on the Bikes!
Unless you’ve been living in a deep, dark cave… You may have noticed that there is a lot of cool stuff going on out there. So, we thought it was high-time we started rounding up some of our faves each Friday. Every month, we’ll be choosing a theme that fits with the Osprey lifestyle. Since we were so excited for the launch of our bike blog last month, we decided to continue with that theme for all of October. Welcome to the Osprey Friday Round-Up!
With bicycling infrastructure taking its sweet time to make it to American streets, some kids are taking things into their own hands. A group of high school students in Florida wake up early every morning to meet up and bike, as a group, to school.
“When I ride my bike, I feel better throughout the day. Like school is worth going to if I get to ride my bike.”
Some are there because they want to help the environment, others are psyched to be part of a sweet Florida bike posse (my words) and all love to ride their bikes.
“Riding your bike gives you so much freedom. You don’t have to wait for you bus. You don’t have to wait for your parents. It’s just you and your bike. You just pedal the speed you want.”
I found this over on Copenhagenize and all in all, it’s a sweet little video about a group of kids taking action to change their world. We could use a little more of this.
And we agree. We could use A LOT more of this!
So for our final bike-themed Friday Round-Up, we’ve decided to give you a couple more inspiring videos to get you on your bike…
Every day in Greater Copenhagen about 500,000 people choose the bicycle to get around. They do so on around 1000 km of separated bicycle infrastructure. Here is some footage of rush hour, Copenhagen-style.http://www.vimeo.com/13107694
Little girl likes little boy. Little boy likes BMX bike. Something has to give. What would you choose? The bike or the boy?
Now get on that bike! Happy Friday!
