Lane Love: Yarn Bombing Vancouver Bike Lanes

Colourful bike racks in downtown Vancouver

You learn new things all the time, and today was no exception. Did you know it was International Yarn Bombing Day a couple of weekends ago? This occasion was put to good use in Vancouver where the bike racks along one lane were beautified with yarn.

Sweden: “No Ridiculous Car Trips”

Every Wednesday on Ditch Your Car we’ll be bringing you just another reason to spend more time on two wheels. Be it a photo, a statistic or an inspirational video, we want to keep reminding you about why riding is great!

Props to Malmö, Sweden for this great campaign — simply titled No Ridiculous Car Trips — which is attempting to get people to switch their cars for bikes for all trips under 5 kilometers.

How many trips a week could you make by bike instead of car?

Via Grist.

DC Gets Nation’s Largest Bikeshare Program

Congrats to Washington D.C. who this week launched the nation’s biggest (and maybe baddest?) bike share program, Capital BikeShare.

The program has 1,100 bikes at 100 kiosks in the District and Northern Virginia. With an introductory yearly rate of $50, which will go up to $75, or a day pass for $5, the new bike share program certainly competes with other modes of alternative transportation, which means you should probably consider killing those cab fares next time you’re in town.
