pages). We wanted to shock you, to turn heads and to give you the exact opposite of what you have grown to expect from Momentum, hoping you were ready for a new approach, too. Approximately 90 percent of the feedback we received has been positive! People are excited and ready for more, see InBox on p.10. Not everyone will agree with our editorial choices, but if we can inspire even one more person to try

riding a bike, then there is hope that we can reach new people and increase our cycling mode share in Canada and the US beyond a dismal one percent. From the feedback we received and from browsing through ongoing web discussions, we are still stricken by cyclists that spend so much time arguing amongst other cyclists about rules of the road, helmet laws, proper gear and attire. These are important topics

of understanding if you ride a bike, but not worth the constant infighting amongst should-be allies. Why do we need to be purists? We forget that for many the simplicity of riding a bicycle is what makes it the most beautiful machine, no matter our style and our surroundings. Let’s embrace the different facets of bicycle users: the fixies, the family cyclists, the fashionconscious riders, the gear heads and the “serious cyclists,” and promote cycling to all. The beauty lies in its simplicity. It’s smart living by bike. tania lo and mia kohout Publishers, Momentum Magazine mia@momentumplanet .Com tania@momentumplanet .Com

takethelane Championing the Cause

W

hile attending an advocacy seminar at the 2011 National Bike Summit in Washington, DC, in March, I was reminded of one message in particular: we need champions of the cause. Movements, whether for civil rights, women’s rights, democratic freedom, etc., have all had figureheads – individuals who, by way of their charisma, public speaking ability and dedication, attract the eyes and ears of a lot of people and bring them together under one banner. Added to that, if the examples of the Libyan and Egyptian democratic uprisings have taught us anything, the willingness of the masses to get behind a cause has much to do with the success of a movement – that’s where you come in. David Byrne, on the cover of this issue, can certainly be counted among the notable individuals getting behind the cycling banner in North America. His work in New York City – including designing several themed bike racks – and speaking tours have done much to change perceptions about what it means to ride a bike, i.e., it’s fun and cool to bike in the city, and you don’t have to be an athlete to do it. People like Byrne and the many other dedicated advocates of cycling in North America make our job here at Momentum easier. They present shining examples of how mainstream, popular and natural it is to choose to include biking in your

transportation mix. And the more people recognize the utility and attractiveness of biking, the more policy-makers will take notice and the safer and more convenient city cycling will be. Safety is a key issue that is causing some tensions in the bicycling community. The whole discussion surrounding helmet use often seems to come down to a “you’re either with us or you’re against us” mentality, leaving “us” without a clear resolution (or message for that matter) in sight. Reporter Elly Blue does a great job of exploring both sides of the argument, and the gray areas in between, in our feature story about helmets, p. 36. We also have some fantastic Arts and Culture content in this issue, p. 16, along with our feature chat with David Byrne, which was covered by Arts and Culture editor Bryna Hallam, p. 34. And don’t miss our look at cycling in Minneapolis, p. 40, our MOHow about getting your bike on a plane, p. 50, Mia Birk’s load-bearing experience at a garage sale, p. 54, bikes we love, p. 46, kids’ helmets, p. 27, and much, much more!

re: biCyCling With neWborns, marCh/ aPril 2011

Bicycling with Newborns is a great article. As a physician assistant, I am sometimes asked this question from patients that know that I am also a cyclist. Ryan Mijker stated that “research produces very little information on bicycling with newborns.” In my search to answer this question for the parents in my pediatric practice, I came up with the same conclusion. The reason is that there are no helmets made for infants less than one years of age; therefore, no agency that researches safety issues with children will do research because it is generally recognized that all children should have helmets. With regards to “vibrations causing brain damage,” I also found no evidence to support the claim. I have recommended that using a lower tire pressure in a bike trailer may help abate this concern. Overall, Ryan wrote a nice article on a subject that needs more research. Thank You,

Louis Melini PA-C, Wasatch Pediatrics Salt Lake City, UT

more female PoWer, less allure

Congratulations on your 50th issue and your new look. I’m definitely into the design. However, I’m really frustrated with the image on your new cover, and I need to express this. First of all, yes, super aesthetically pleasing. Pretty and summery, and very evocative of summer biking in the city. I also understand it’s an image that’s featured as part of an art project inside the magazine, and one that seems really cool and is focused on New York, the city you highlight in the issue. I get all that, definitely. But I really wish you’d picked another picture from the project. It’s not that this picture isn’t beautiful and that the woman riding isn’t empowered to ride, and this isn’t a question of women not being able to wear whatever they want when they ride and feel empowered. I don’t have a problem with her outfit, I have a problem with the picture and what it represents when it’s on the cover of a popular cycling lifestyle magazine. Women are sexualized in this society every single day, and this is ESPECIALLY true for bike culture, to the point where it can be alienating to a lot of women to even walk into a bike shop to learn how to fix a flat tire … And

Lau Mehes Vancouver, BC

helmets on heads Please I recently picked up a copy of your magazine, intrigued by the concept. While I really enjoyed many of the articles, I was astounded how many pictures and advertisements showed people riding with no helmets! I would love to see more images focused on a message of “safety is sexy” and less about fashionable people riding (for instance in a swimsuit and see-through skirt) with no helmets. The gal on the cover in particular was riding in the meridian lines of a crowded street; not obeying traffic laws, not wearing a helmet and possibly verging on indecent exposure and a causative agent in traffic accidents. It seems like a dangerous message. When biking is truly your lifestyle, it should be made as safe as possible. We should also encourage acceptance from cars and trucks by following the rules and being visible on the road – but not distracting. Otherwise, keep up the good work. I look forward to reading another issue.

What do you HonestlY onestlY onestl Y think of the new momentum magazine?

iss there anything that you would change about the new layout and/or design?

62% i love it! 84% believe momentum (we) is going in the right direction 92% would pick it up if they saw it in a coffee shop 93% believe you are in momentum’s target audience

i love it! i’m not sure how i could have loved it more than before, but it’s even better!

This page follows a 9 column grid with a 0.1275 in. gutter.

I have my copy of issue #50 and I am very impressed with what can best be described as a complete rework of the magazine. It flows well, has a wide variety of articles and achieves success in carrying the message of cycling as a “lifestyle.” While the focus on clothing style is more than I would seek out in a cycling magazine, the magazine does give me much of what I am looking for: a validation of my choice of transportation, a strong sense of the larger community and a good look at other cities and how people there make their cycling environment work for them.

my only issue is that this is a great magazine and i always need more more more!!!

m mandatory helmet laWs aren’t the ansWer In Ontario, if you’re over 18 years of age, it’s up to you to decide

weather you want to wear a helmet or not. So, for me, it is optional. Saying that, I am of the opinion that wearing a “bucket” just makes good sense, much the same as lifejackets make sense when you’re boating. Still, mandatory helmet laws would be the wrong approach because it is next to impossible to enforce them. Technology, fit and, especially, style have come a long way in the past 15 years. Keep making funky, cool and functional helmet designs and the masses will follow.

Pat Verriet Kitchener, ON

helmets should be a ChoiCe Very detailed information related to your question of mandatory cycling helmets has been done by the Bicycle Helmet Research Foundation. … This is an issue of personal freedom – since helmet -wearing or the decision to not wear a helmet directly affects only its user – and parents should be able to decide this for their children for the same reason. … My accepted abstract for the last Velo-city conference in Seville, Spain, “Helmetism & Hyper-illumination,” provides further information and references. I have a Facebook page on the subject focused on Velo-city Global, which will take place in Vancouver, BC, next year.

i’m incredibly impressed all around; the only suggestion i would make, is to consider using 9-point body type (it looks like 8-point?) . the font size makes the text on the verge of hard to read .

i think you’ve done a fantastic job . Feels hip and urban . love it!

well, the cover was done under the rubric of sex sells . You could have given her a cool helmet at least! tHat at would have been a radical redesign!

i just received the newest issue in the mail . i was taken aback, i thought it was some new stylish catalog or something, then i read the title . . .momentum!

Yup . First, though, i think the new style will appeal to a larger audience . it’s clean and fresh . i think the logo is spot on .

w wow! totally cool, much hipper t look and feel . love it .

loving the new design . keep up the great work

no way! it’s beautiful :) no, it’s great as it is - nice & fresh! no, the layout and design look absolutely perfect professional, forward thinking and very eye-catching . i picked up the new issue at reading Frenzy in portland, ore . and couldn’t believe this was a free publication . momentum is a magazine i would gladly pay for for . i really, really, really like it . Content trumps design i like the new design . it gives the magazine a new fresh look with a cool retro style feel .

ity bikes were a big winner at the seventh annual North American Handmade Bicycle Show, which took place in Austin, TX, from February 25 to 28, 2011. They captured first prize in four categories, including, not surprisingly, the city bike category, which made its debut at NAHBS four years ago – the show has been running since 2005. Over 7,000 people attended the Austin Convention Center during the threeday show, which included over 150 builders and vendors. The exhibition of all things handmade and custom is a huge draw for anyone who enjoys the raw aesthetic and craftsmanship of personally-tailored bikes. Next year’s NAHBS is scheduled to take place in Sacramento, CA, from March 2-4. Out of 16 categories, city bikes scored top marks for: best lugged bike, Bilenky Cycle Works; best in show, DiNucci Cycles; best city bike, Signal Cycles; and people’s choice, Naked Bicycles.

our-year-olds can be pretty speedy on two wheels. So Shelly Horton suggested to her husband, Brett Horton, that they invest in a town bike for her that would be comfortable and fast enough to keep up with their son, Trevor, on the streets near their home in San Francisco, CA. A simple-enough request, unless your husband is a famous bike racing memorabilia collector with a penchant for lugged steel. Within three hours of getting on the phone, Brett Horton had secured some of the top handmade builders in North America to design and construct a fully custom bike. His pitch to the handmade craftspeople: “Let’s see if we can build the coolest bike that the world has ever seen.” Horton started racing in the 1970s and now owns one of the largest collections of original bike racing memorabilia in the world. It probably won’t come as a surprise, then, that the Shelly Horton mixte bike was designed around a vintage French chain guard. Bilenky Cycle Works (BCW), of Philadelphia, PA, was commissioned to do the job of designing and building the frameset because of their expertise and experience building bikes for women. The inspiration for this, Horton said in a telephone interview, was drawn from a door that BCW owner, Stephen Bilenky, came across while at a train station. The town bike is considered to be part of the constructeur tradition that began in post-Second World War France. The Art Deco aesthetic of the frameset is complimented by a custom handmade Brooks, England saddle, built around the B67S ladies saddle – something, Horton said, they were very lucky to get. While the Shelly Horton bike isn’t complete yet – some newly fabricated elements will be added before it is shown at Interbike 2011 in Las Vegas, NV – Shelly is already happy with the design, Horton said. The Shelly Horton bike was debuted at the North American Handmade Bicycle Show in Austin, TX, from February 25-27, 2011, where it took home the grand prize for best lugged frame by Bilenky Cycle Works.

arts & culture not your y a average High School Prom “It’s making a kind of political or social statement,” Warbeck said. “But it’s not a kind of political or social statement that people find unapproachable or confrontational. It’s something that amuses, delights, entertains and creates a sense of fun around choosing an alternative method of transportation.” In Victoria, what began as a dance party at a local shop soon grew into a three- or four-day festival with everything from bike polo and group rides, to film festivals and art shows. Soon it wasn’t just the Victoria bike community in attendance, but

yclists are showing their truest friend – their bicycles – some love by dressing up and letting loose at the prom. “Bike prom is essentially a party for bike people … where your bike is your date,” explained Lauren Warbeck, a core organizer of Victoria, BC’s bike prom for the past two years. Participants get decked out in whatever they deem to be their personal best – and the same often goes for the bike – and cycle en masse to the big dance, playing music and dancing all the way.

people from all over the Pacific Northwest. And whereas the first event in 2007 had fewer than 100 people, last year there were upwards of 500. Overall, Warbeck said, the event is a celebration not just of bike culture, but of the DIY community in general. “You think of a high school prom as more of a traditional and conventional and kind of circumscribed occurrence. I think bike prom is kind of an ironic play on that,” she explained. “It’s this alternative community of people coming together to create … an event that they would actually enjoy and appreciate and that would actually reflect their values.”

oe “Metal Cowboy” Kurmaskie’s new book has something for just about every type of cyclist in his new collection of riding affirmations. From a list of 2,000 entries, the book has been whittled down to 250 pages, but with each one-liner split onto two pages, it’s hardly heavy reading. If you can’t find something in the book that makes you simultaneously laugh and nod knowingly, well, maybe you’re not a true cyclist.

1. Bike Prom is a fundraiser for the Living Arts and Science Center in Lexington, KY. Participants ride through downtown in their formal duds and use a prom map to collect stamps on dance cards. At the balloon draped photobooth, a couple have their picture taken before doing a quick obstacle course and heading out to the next spot on the map.

ith the weather finally turning in our favor, it’s high time to dust off our bikes, pump up the tires and get back on the open road. The problem is, if you’ve been off the road for a while, or you’re planning on hitting it for the first time, the idea might seem a little haphazard. Don’t worry, it’s not. Of course, there are a few guidelines (written and unwritten) that riders of all levels should follow. Riding on the road can be dangerous, whether you’re on a bike or in a car, but this shouldn’t be an excuse to let your bike go unridden. No matter your cycling skill-level, a prescribed mixture of safety-consciousness road knowledge and a few drops of common sense are enough to cure even the worst case of “Unridden Bike Syndrome.” The formula is simple: it’s a matter of knowing where to start. Use the following points to equip yourself with the courage to log some miles on your cyclometer. Once you’ve been on the road a few times, these approaches to cycling become second nature and make getting in the car that much harder (which isn’t a bad thing).

cyclists). When passing a parked car, keep at least three feet between you and it and watch for opening doors. When passing other cyclists or pedestrians, call out to notify them of which side you’ll be passing them so you don’t catch them off guard. Don’t assume drivers will signal their turns. And if you’re near an intersection or corner with traffic, don’t overtake anyone or cross without first looking both ways for oncoming cars and bikes.

knoW your road. Some roads have two lanes, some four; some have shoulders, some don’t. A busy, high-speed road may be the shortest distance between two points, but that doesn’t make it safe. Use maps and local resources to chart safer alternate routes using any combination of slower roads, roads with shoulders and bike-specific avenues, such as bike lanes (where bikes share the road), bike paths and separated bike lanes (which are exclusive to bikes) and trails or even the occasional sidewalk (if allowed).

knoW your bike. While this may seem obvious, this point is often the most ignored. Think of it as “Zen and the art of bicycle maintenance.” Keep your derailleurs in line, your skewers tightened, your wheels trued and your tires filled to the correct pressure. If you’re not comfortable doing this, bring it to your local bike shop at least once a season for routine maintenance. Check your tires once a week, too, because tires lose pressure periodically. The best bike is not the newest or the fastest, it’s the bike that’s best for you and the roads you choose to take.

knoW your Conditions. When the weather is adverse, things become more precarious for everyone on the road. Try to keep your bike off the road when there isn’t a lot of visibility, as in a rainstorm, blizzard or heavy fog. Different road textures, like gravel or sand, can be equally precarious. If the going gets tough, walk your bike. knoW your drivers. You’ve heard of “Defensive Driving?” This is “Defensive Cycling.” Ride confidently, but watch for bad drivers (and

knoW your rules. In some places, cyclists are subject to the same laws as automobiles. In others, different laws apply. Most municipalities will have cycling laws publicly listed on a website or other civic resource. No matter where you are, however, you should form a few basic conscientious habits: Use the appropriate hand signals to indicate when you’re turning or stopping, use flashing front/ rear lights at night, consider wearing a helmet and don’t ride on busy sidewalks. Though some cities are more serious about enforcement than others, cyclists should apply these common practices whether they’re in Miami, Cincinnati or Toronto.

ride With others. Many cities have local cycling organizations that run riding skills courses. Check with the one nearest you for information about how to ride on the road safely and legally. Riding with a more experienced cyclist is also a great way to learn the tricks of the trade. Consider recruiting a friend or coworker to ride with you to work, home or on your lunch break. @benvanloon M O M e n t u M p l a n e t. C O M

hen our daughter, Anna Sierra, mastered riding a bike with no training wheels, kindergarten was one of her first destinations. Parking her little bike next to the big kids’ bigger bikes was a rite of passage. It was easy for Anna Sierra to learn to ride her very own bike. We are a biking family. Long before she rode on her own, Anna Sierra rode on our bikes, first in a bike trailer, then a front seat and a back seat. As soon as she showed the slightest interest in biking, we made sure Anna Sierra had a properly fitting helmet, a great little bike and every possible opportunity to ride. But not all kids grow up in families where biking is such a high priority. Not all kids have helmets, or bikes, or enough supervised time to gain the skills to become safe and confident riders.

a school bike Club

An elementary school bike club can fill this gap and provide kids with the opportunity to become skilled cyclists. Helmet fit, basic bike maintenance and repair, hand signals, shoulder checking, general bike handling skills and route selection can all be taught in a school bike club.

reSourceS For School Bike cluBS

At my children’s school, we initially planned to start an After-school Bike Club. This might work well at some elementary schools. But given that the majority of kids at my children’s school go directly to some form of after-school care, this option would exclude some of the very kids we are trying to reach. The whole school has a common lunch hour, so we decided on a Lunchtime Bike Club. There are already lunchtime yoga and chess classes at the school, so a bike club is a natural next step. The only problem was space. My kids attend a downtownish school with limited outdoor play space. At lunchtime, the children who were not in the Bike Club would be playing in the schoolyard so that space wouldn’t be available.

Jennifer McGowan of Halifax’s Active and Safe Routes to School program runs the Making Tracks program that teaches kids how to safely walk, bike, in-line skate and skateboard to school. She suggested we use the school’s gym. “Many of the components of our Making Tracks program can be taught inside,” said McGowan. “We drop a melon with and without a helmet on it to practice helmet safety. We play ‘Name that Bike Part,’ and we teach the kids how to fix an inner tube and change a tire. You can do all of those things inside if your access to outdoor space is limited.” McGowan also noted that some schools offer cycling instruction as a phys ed class.

bikes for everyone

Gord MacGregor, the City Wide Sports coordinator who runs CAN Bike courses for Ottawa, ON, realizes that not all kids have access to their own bikes and helmets. To keep his program accessible, he said: “We’re making ‘handlebars’ out of old and broken hockey sticks so everyone can learn basic traffic rules and practice signaling.” McGowan contacted Halifax’s Bike Again! recycled bike shop. The volunteer mechanics were willing to tune up and provide her with a set of kids’ bikes that schools could borrow. “Most cities have an equivalent recycled bike shop that might be willing to tune up donated bikes,” said McGowan.

Kids know bike clubs are awesome. If teachers, principals or parents ask why, tell them: + Biking helps to stave off childhood obesity and all the health risks that accompany obesity. + Biking encourages independence and responsibility. + The Making Tracks Program is designed to meet elementary curriculum expectations. + In some school districts, high school students need to volunteer a set number of hours in order to graduate. Teaching elementary kids to bike is a great way to volunteer. + Biking is a kid-friendly form of active transportation.

helmets

Used bikes can be repaired, reused and widely shared. But any helmets distributed to kids should be new to be sure they meet safety standards. This is especially important at a bike club run on school property. Local bike stores may be willing to partner with your bike club to donate helmets or sell them to your club members at a discount. Kathleen Wilker also writes about Families on Bikes on her blog. Visit momentumplanet.com/blogs/families-on-bikes for more suggestions, tips and stories about riding as a family.

t-girl Risa Fay and Black Swan guitarist, Marinho Maelissa, are snapped as they leave Blue Water Cafe + Raw Bar* – a well-know celeb hangout in Vancouver, BC – and head to pick up their bikes from the bike valet. Our reporter caught up with them after their meal. “Over and above the mussels, the reason we keep coming back to this place is because they offer bike valet,” said Fay. “It’s great to be able to bike up to a place and not have to worry about finding a bike rack and everything. It’s a total perk!” Fay, a huge fan of sustainable fashion, is wearing the Wild Flower Frock from Adhesif’s Spring/ Summer 2011 collection. “This dress is perfect to cycle in because of the loose skirt,” Fay said. “The rich colors are absolutely to die for. This dress feels like spring to me!” Fay’s look is completed with chunky square sunglasses and a topknot. Fay favors this look because she can easily let her hair down when it comes time to put on her Nutcase helmet. Maelissa is wearing a Ben Sherman bomber jacket and a Ben Sherman L/S Henley Sweater in red. Dark jeans and a vintage shirt complete his look. The jacket is great to cycle in because of its warmth, but it’s stylish enough to wear dining out or going to a show. When asked about his “typical riding outfit” Maelissa said, “Whatever I can wear both on and off the bike. I’m super busy and don’t have time to change into a different outfit every time I want to jump on my bike. If it’s something that I can wear on stage and on my bike, that’s a winning outfit.” Speaking of which, what are they riding? Fay is riding a white Hearts Desire cruiser by Marin Bikes and Maelissa is riding a green Raleigh Hybrid Route 4.0. The cruiser style of the bike is perfect for a relaxed Saturday evening of dinner and drinks; said Maelissa: “The bike I ride completely depends on the task I need to accomplish that day.” A huge thank-you to models Risa Fay, Marinho Maelissa, designer Melissa Ferreira of Adhesif Clothing Company (2202 Main St., Vancouver, BC), Lloyd’s of Gastown (157 Water St., Vancouver, BC), Reckless Bikes (110 Davie St., Vancouver, BC) and the Blue Water Cafe + Raw Bar (1095 Hamilton St., Vancouver, BC).

lever Cycles got its start when two ingenious sets of strangers eyed each other’s rides. It was 2006 and Martina and Todd Fahrner pedaled over to a party at a friend’s house in Portland, OR. They rode their Xtracycles for all sorts of everyday activities. But their bicycles weren’t exactly the standard model: Todd had enhanced each with a bright-red electric-assist motor. Portland being a bike-curious town, the Fahrners weren’t the only folks who showed up on creative wheels. Dean and Rachel Mullin also attended that gathering, arriving on a tandem bike with a daisy-chain of trailers hitched to the back. “So we were ogling the Mullin’s tandem trailers and they were ogling our Xtracycles,” Martina Fahrner said with a laugh. “It took off from there.”

The show floor of Clever Cycles in Portland, Or.

The two families quickly discovered they had a lot in common. They lived just 10 minutes apart. They viewed bicycling not as a way to burn calories, make a statement or win some sort of competition. They loved riding because it was simply the most efficient and enjoyable way to get around town. Relying on bicycling for all the necessities of transportation, though, meant both families needed more from their bikes than some commuters and recreational riders. “Dean and Rachel had four kids under 10 years old and they were trying to figure out how to get four kids onto one bike or onto bikes in general,” Martina said. At the time, there was one Dutch woman who transported her two kids around

That was enough to send Todd and Dean on a trip to the Netherlands to test ride some bakfiets for themselves. They were inspired and, almost immediately, knew they needed to import them to North America. So, in March 2007, Clever Cycles opened its doors. Co-owned by the Fahrners and Mullins, the shop sells a number of European-inspired city bikes, such as Breezer, Linus and Retrovelo. But what makes Clever Cycles unique is its impressive selection of cargo bikes. Need to transport two kids and a week’s worth of groceries – and not exhaust your body and lose your mind in the process? Clever Cycles has some smart solutions. They carry bakfietsen and Gazelle Cabbys with big cargo seats in the front. They sell Xtracycles with hitchless trailers capable of hauling up to 200 pounds (91 kilograms) in the back. They’ve got tricycles, WorkCycles and a wide array of children’s seats for any style of bicycle. If their mission could be summed up in one word, it would be “utilitarian.” “Biking is supposed to be fun,” Martina said. “You’re not supposed to have to dress up for it. It’s something you just do. Just as easily as you grab your car keys and head out for your car, you should be able to head out to your bike and put a laptop on the back and pick up something to eat and even pick up your kids from school. It’s all about bikes as active

he secret is out, though it’s not really a secret to those who live here: Minneapolis, MN, is the number one bicycle city in the US. As Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak is fond of saying, referring to the 2010 Bicycling Magazine decree where the Mill City recently usurped Portland, OR, for top honors: “Portland is just another street in Minneapolis.” And Rybak’s employer practices what he preaches. At the National Bike Summit held in Washington, DC, this past March, the City of Minneapolis was honored by the League of American Bicyclists with the Gold Award designation for a Bike Friendly Business. Hyperbole aside, this big city with a small town feel does have some incredible bikefriendly features. In June of 2010, the bike share program ‘Nice Ride Minnesota’ launched making 700 bikes available for rent at 65 kiosks located across the city. Ridership that year topped 100,000 trips. For 2011, the popular program is expanding into North Minneapolis and Saint Paul, with the number of kiosks rising from 65 to an impressive 85 and the number of bikes reaching a total of 1,000. According to the federally-funded Bike Walk Twin Cities, cycling in the Twin Cities of Saint Paul and Minneapolis increased by 33 percent between 2007 and 2010. Simply put, getting around town via cycle is easy, thanks to the city’s grid-system of streets and avenues and, perhaps more so, the ever-increasing network of trails, bike lanes and paths. The Midtown Greenway extends from the Mississippi River on one end, all the way to the western suburbs, and is used by thousands of commuters every week. The Cedar Lake Bicycle Highway, which also brings commuters downtown, is just finishing its final extension which passes under the new Minnesota Twins stadium and connects to the West River Parkway.

2. This is a bicycle gathering billed as “A Casual Bike ride Through the Backroads and Byways of Minneapolis with Hundreds of Yer Friends.” True to the billing, 200300 bicyclists are common during this summer ride. The Midtown Greenway, shown here in the foreground, is a bicycle path through an old freight rail right-of-way, bisecting south Minneapolis from east to west. phOtO by MarK eMery

he most impressive part of cycling in Minneapolis is the infrastructure. The light rail line into the city comes equipped with out-of-the way bike hooks that prevent them from blocking seats and falling over. The city has 46 miles (74 kilometers) of streets with dedicated bicycle lanes and 84 miles (135 kilometers) of off-street bicycle paths. Although the warmer months are the most pleasant, cycling is embraced in all four seasons. Word to the wise: some of the most beautiful trails are along the Mississippi River. And you can leave your bike at home. Visitors can easily enjoy the sites listed below on a Nice Ride bike, available through the eponymous city-wide bike sharing program.

These bikes should make you feel like a kid again, and this is every bit as important as anything else. – DAN NGuYeN-TAN

PUBLIC bikes are built to be savored.

Their sleek simplicity is pure urban eye candy. Their signature colors are mouthwatering mandarin orange and the pale baby blue of birthday cake frosting. And that decadence is more than frame-deep. “They ride like butter,” said Dan Nguyen-Tan, the company’s spokesman. Based in San Francisco, CA, PUBLIC sells crave-worthy commuter bikes, but their brand is a lip-smacking hybrid of retro utility and ultramodern design. So, it’s not surprising that the man behind the brand is a star in the art world. Rob Forbes is the founder of Design Within Reach, a modern furniture retailer that exemplifies a clean, simple aesthetic. But long before he imported his first Danish armchair, Forbes had a love affair with bicycles. In 2010, he created PUBLIC bikes to put his passion for pedaling within reach of the general masses. “Sometimes he jokes that he spent years getting people on couches at DWR and now he’s inspired to get people off their couches with PUBLIC,” NguyenTan said. “Rob has a strong passion for design – bicycles as a design object that provide significant social and personal well-being benefits – and urban design as it relates to how we build communities.”

To meet those two missions, Forbes debuted with a modest fleet of city rides: single-speed, seven-speed derailleur and three- and eight-speed internal hub bikes in three different frame models – diamond, mixte and step-through. The colors were inspired by, among other objects, a 1968 Vespa scooter. The frames drew from elements of the “double diamond”

– a style that flourished in 19th century Britain. The prices cater to the general masses, starting at less than $500 USD. The one-word company name sums up Forbes’ desire to serve cyclists’ present needs while pushing the envelope for a better future. PUBLIC bikes, NguyenTan said, are for everyday people who commute to M O M e n t u M p l a n e t. C O M

fly with your bike hOW tO

writer: torrey Pass

F

lying with your bicycle can be a real gut-wrencher. Aside from the handling surcharge that can sometimes rival your airfare, there’s also the risk that your baby will get mangled in transit. Every time you fly, it’s a roll of the dice. The airline employee who checks your luggage and the baggage handlers at either end are the variables. You can stack the odds in your favor, however, by doing a little research and packing your bike with care. read up!

Read and compare each airline’s baggage policy before you book your flight. The fine print will likely help you decide which company to fly with. Most major US and Canadian airlines will accept a bicycle in lieu of a checked bag and won’t add a surcharge. You just have to stuff it into a box smaller than 62 linear inches (length + height + width). Given that a standard bike-shipping box is roughly 90 linear inches, the 62-inch standard is effectively going to leave you with a hefty oversize luggage fee. Unless you have a folding bike, the only workaround is to put your wheels and your frame (with seat post, pedals, stem, bars and fork removed) in two different boxes. Consider this option if you have the mechanical expertise to strip your bike down and build it back up again.

how to Find a Box

You should be able to get a free box from your local bike shop. Have one set aside about a week before your flight; boxes are usually broken down and stuffed into the recycling bin as soon as they’re emptied. Ask for a pair of plastic braces that snap into your dropouts (every new bike is shipped with them). These will keep your fork legs from puncturing the cardboard and prevent your frame from being bent due to side impact or stacking. Ask for some plastic inserts that snap into your hubs. They’ll protect your wheels and keep your axles from punching through the box. If you decide to go with two small boxes, grab one designed for shipping wheelsets – a perfect fit for your hoops. The box should also include some anti-crushing cardboard sections.

how to

• Your ride will fit into a standard bike box with pedals removed, handlebars turned or removed and one or both wheels removed. If you remove both wheels, place your frame in the box upside down. Never rest the frame on the derailleur hanger. • Deflate tires to about half the max PSI written on their sidewalls so they don’t explode at altitude. • Turn or remove the handlebars. To turn, loosen the stem bolts that clamp onto the fork steerer. To take the stem off, remove the headset adjustment bolt, loosen the stem bolts and work the stem off the fork. Have someone show you how to adjust your headset upon reassembly if you aren’t sure how to do it yourself. • Remove pedals, remembering that the non-drive side pedal is reverse-threaded (clockwise to loosen). Using an Allen key, remove your rear derailleur from the hanger, first making sure there’s no tension on the chain; this will keep the hanger from getting bent or snapped. Zip-tie or tape the derailleur to the inside of the chainstay. • Remove quick release skewers from the hubs to save space and prevent damage; tape or zip-tie them to your spokes. Snap the plastic inserts into your hubs. • Snap the plastic braces into your fork (and frame) dropouts. • Keep all parts separate and organized. Make sure there are no loose bolts rolling around in the bottom of the box. • Wedge sleeping pads, clothes, shoeboxes or cardboard inserts (shipped with new bikes) between the frame, parts and box to prevent crushing due to impact or stacking. Your boxed bike should be able to withstand a karate kick or a kung-fu punch from any direction.

50

Unless you plan to bag your bike, take a taxi to the airport. Specify that you have a boxed bike and ask for a van.

What to expect at the Airport

To avoid problems, print the airline’s baggage policy and keep it handy when you check your bike. Make sure you’ve measured and weighed your boxes so that they meet the airline’s requirements. Be nice!

preventing damage and the unthinkable “What if?”

Some airlines require that you sign a limited release form that prevents you from claiming damages incurred during handling. If you refuse to sign, your bike simply won’t be accepted. Again, read before you book. Take photos of your bike going into the box. Pack with care to prevent crushing. “This Side Up” and “FRAGILE” stickers can’t hurt.

putting the pieces together

If you’ve boxed your bike yourself, putting it together again shouldn’t be a problem, assuming you’ve remembered your tools. All you should need is your set of Allen keys and a pump. • Carefully thread in the rear derailleur with an Allen key, making sure it’s snug. Reinsert the quickreleases, put on your wheels and reconnect the brakes. Turn stem, make sure headset is properly adjusted and tighten stem bolts. Insert seat post (of course you remembered to mark the height with some electrical tape!) and thread in pedals (clockwise for the drive side, counterclockwise for the non-drive side). • Inflate tires, hop on and ride!

Want a bag With that?

some airlines (such as air Canada) provide a big plastic bike bag . some recommend placing the bag over the box on the assumption that a baggage handler will treat a bagged bike with more care . these airlines will definitely have you sign a release form .

some numbers:

handling fees for biCyCles/ oversized baggage + Continental: Baggage over 62 linear inches and/or over 50 pounds (23 kilograms): $100 each way for domestic (us) flights, $200 each way for international flights .

diy?

Many shops will box your bike for a fee. This is a good option only if you aren’t comfortable doing it yourself and if you’re sure someone can assemble your bike for you at the other end.

getting there

+ us airways: Baggage over 62 linear inches and/or over 50 lbs (23 kgs) $200 each direction . + american airlines: $150 each way if over 62 linear inches . + Westjet: $50 oversize baggage charge if over 62 linear inches . + air Canada: $50 each way regardless of box size .

dear advocate:

I really want to get my grandparents out of their cars and onto their bikes. How can I get them interested in riding? Are there bicycles out there built specifically for the comfort of seniors?

– hoPeful granddaughter

dear hopeful,

Many seniors love to reminisce about their two-wheeling days. I would first talk with your grandparents to help revive their interest in saddling up. Cycling gives seniors a relatively low-stress means of exercise that has been proven to increase health and longevity. It is also a great, inexpensive and social activity that can help them stay active and connected to their community in their retirement years.

while boosting their confidence. The League of American Bicyclists hosts an online directory of these courses at bikeleague.org/programs/ education/course_schedule.php. Lastly, support your grandparents in their new mode of travel. Invite them to go on a ride with you. Buy them a membership to their local bicycle advocacy group. See if there are any senior bicycling clubs in your area they could ride with. If

Then, help them find a bike that’s right for them. Go to a bike retailer rather than a big box store. They will be more passionate about cycling and more knowledgeable about what’s on the market. Step-through frames make it easy to get on and off a bike. Recumbents may be the right choice for seniors with back issues. Tricycles may work for those who have trouble balancing or are afraid of falling. If hills are a major deterrent, they could try an electric bicycle that will give them a boost up hills and help them save energy for the flatter parts of the ride. Once they find a bicycle that suits them, they’ll need a safe place to ride. Many people, seniors included, are nervous about riding in traffic. If your grandparents are in this camp, look for some car-free trails or off-road paths to start. You can also seek out local road riding classes that can help them hone their skills

Before you could say “lickety-split,” my wallet was empty. Thank goodness they didn’t take credit cards at this garage sale. Sasha, standing by the ever-increasing pile of merchandise, clutching her pink gorilla, looked worried. “Mom, I think you got too much.” “Silly Sasha,” I smiled. “When I was in India I saw a guy carrying a big crate of dishes, a load of rebar, his wife, uncle and four kids!” She looked confused.

how does a chain work?

each link of a chain is held together by a steel pin/ peg . with the chain tool (or a hammer and pliers) you can push out and push in the pins, allowing you to remove or attach links . Fixing a broken chain amounts to removing the broken link and re-attaching the remaining loose ends . on bikes with derailleurs, there are enough extra links that it’s no problem to remove a couple . on a single-speed bike, you probably won’t have enough slack in the chain to remove a link, you’ll need to borrow some links from an old chain or else buy a new one .

how do chains break?

the most common way is by pedaling full force at the same moment that you are shifting your front derailleur . other breaks i’ve seen were caused by an assortment of seemingly one-in-a-million occurrences, yet i’ve seen enough of those cases that i guess, if you ride long enough, onein-a-million happens . things like a nail getting thrown up by my front wheel and lodging in the chain, then getting cranked across the sprocket . who’d a thunk?

expert do-It-yourselfer and Instructables.com co-founder dan Goldwater has the hands-on solution for just about any bike project you can dream up. In this issue, he gets back to basics with the best approach to fixing a broken bike chain.

1 COLUMN

nless you do a lot of mountain biking, it isn’t often that you’ll need to repair or change your bike chain. However, chains do break now and then, and being able to fix one on the street is no harder than fixing a flat tire if you are prepared. To fix a broken chain, all you need is a chain tool. These are compact and built into many common multi-tools, such as the one shown a . You may even already have one on your multitool – now you know what it’s for! At home in your garage, it’s possible to repair a chain with just a hammer and pliers, but a chain tool is easier, and really the only option on the street.

if you are on the street and your chain breaks:

1

Are you wearing nice clothes that you care about? Probably best to lock your bike and take the bus. Come back later with your old jeans and fix it then. Fixing a chain is the dirtiest job there is on a bike. Okay, you’re back and ready to go. Flip your bike over so you can get at the chain more easily. Take a look at the two broken ends. You’ll need to remove two segments of the chain because the two types of segment alternate. If you just remove one segment, you can’t reattach it. Place the chain into the groove in the chain tool b at the spot you want to disconnect. If you are replacing a worn but non-broken chain, you’ll do the same thing here. Turn the screw on the chain tool to start pushing the pin out of the chain c . Be careful to keep the pin on the chain tool lined up with the pin on the

2 3

chain; they sometimes like to slip around a bit. Don’t push the pin all the way out! Only push it just far enough so that the chain comes apart d . You need to leave the last bit of the pin in the chain so you can push it back in later. Okay, now feed the chain back onto your sprockets. It helps a lot if you have a friend who can hold the two ends in position while you reattach them. Now use the chain tool to push the pin back in e . The trickiest part is to keep the tool lined up with the pin. Note: if you are putting on a new chain here, many new chains come with a special link that makes the firsttime installation possible without pushing any pins in. Once the pin is in, the link you just attached will be stiff. Work it back and forth f , until it loosens enough to bend. Take a look at your hands and feel proud. You have done something real today.

if you were putting on a new chain in the comfort of your home, you’ve now got an old worn out chain to upcycle! since you know how to remove links and reattach the segments, you can use part of the old chain as a cable to lock your seat onto your bike g . this is very handy in urban areas . You can also make yourself a bike chain bracelet h or an earring . You’ll need a fairly big piercing and a tough ear to get that stud through .

is a one page opinions article, that showcases two writers differing views on a subject. The topic is the central focus of the article and beneath that the two writers present their opinions.

I’ve been riding my bike for years on the road, fighting for space, fighting for visibility, fighting, rather dramatically, for my life. The recent emergence of separated bike facilities in cities around North America, such as San Francisco, New York, Portland, Vancouver and Montreal, among others, means that the fighting style of riding is no longer a necessity. A more leisurely and comfortable way of riding bicycles, whether for transportation or recreation. is a real possibility. When cities include well-designed and developed spaces for bicyclists to ride, it shows that people’s lives are valued in that community, no matter how they choose to get around. Riding a bicycle is a beautiful way to live, and separate facilities make it available to everyone: from an eight-year-old child to an 80-year-old grandmother. Different speeds and needs demand different solutions; we’ve seen this at work for the last decades in the evolution of urban design for pedestrians. We move more slowly when walking and so spaces were created in the urban environment to accommodate and – when done well – encourage people to walk. Bicycles require a solution independent of roads made for cars and sidewalks made for people strolling. Separated bike lanes are often visually striking, making it much easier for motorists, cyclists and walkers to anticipate approaching bicycles. If we provide a space where people can safely and comfortably ride away from heavy, loud motorized vehicles, more and more people will be apt to ride a bike. Separate bike space slows down the pace of life and provides a safe place to observe the world more casually, without having to race to keep up with automobiles. lolly Walsh is a bicycle advocate living in pittsburgh, pa. she loves the elegance of the bicycle and rides hers for transportation, convenience and pleasure. she manages the membership and outreach programs for Bike pittsburgh and writes about cities, bikes, possibility and pittsburgh at reimagine an urban paradise.

elly’s rebuttal Separated bike lanes take a lot of heat – and rightly so. Yes, they separate bikes from cars, creating a safer environment – until you get to an intersection. You’re riding along and suddenly someone in a car is turning right across your path, because they did not see that you were coming. This conflict is avoided only if the cycle track has been wisely planned, with expensive signals at each intersection. In North American cities, this isn’t usually done right. Cycle tracks eliminate your choice to share the road and merge with car traffic. What if you want to turn left? Left turns from a separated bike lane are awkward and not intuitive; unless, again, proper markings and signals are installed. People love to walk in cycle tracks; park in them; drive quickly through them to get around traffic. These uses all pose a major hazard to everyone involved and create difficulties for people bicycling. That is, unless the cycle track has been designed to minimize these conflicts and their proper use is enforced. When done well, cycle tracks are dreamy. But when done halfway, they’re worse than nothing. We know how to build them, but do we have the guts to demand they be done right? elly Blue lives in portland, or. she writes about bicycling, including a column about the bicycle economy for grist.org, a regular news roundup for Bikeportland and a zine called Taking the Lane. she is the co-founder of pDXbyBiKe.com. @ellyblue

yclists have had a love/ hate relationship with chains since the first chain-driven bicycle rolled off the line in 1874. Simple in their design, inexpensive to replace and easy to diagnose, chains are also dirty, heavy and not particularly robust in the urban setting. Frequent hard-acceleration, varying pedal pressure, track stands and a myriad of automotive-grade grime are all part of the daily grind that can cripple a chain. Quite simply, city bikes take a lot of abuse from the road, yet need to perform reliably. Enter the belt drive. Made out of polyurethane, carbon belt drives don’t require lube, making them a cleaner option. They are also lighter, quieter and more durable than a chain. Gates invented the automotive V-belt in 1917 and subsequently has the industry know-how to ensure that bicycle belt drive technology is more than a flash in the pan. According to Gates spokesperson, Paul Tolme, “Paired with today’s wide-range internally geared hubs, belt drives have produced a super lowmaintenance commuter bike.” Portland’s Joe Bike takes advantage of Gates’ carbon-reinforced belt on the shop’s premiere front box utility bike, the Shuttlebug, where the belt’s increased durability boosts rider confidence. While the advantages are many, there are challenges, too. Belt drives only work on bikes with internallygeared, fixed gear and single-speed hubs, as they cannot be used with derailleurs.A belt drive requires an opening in the frame, often positioned where the chainstay and seatstays meet at the chain-side dropout, so if you’ve already got a bike you love, upgrading might not be an option. You cannot take apart a belt, so installation is a bit trickier and you will need the right size of belt for your frame. Also, paired with an internal hub, a new belt-driven bicycle is likely to cost more than a freehub and derailleur-powered bike. Fortunately, the rewards to urban cyclists are worth any added upfront expense. Riders can expect their bicycle’s drivetrain to have a long, trouble-free life. They offer smoother operation with less friction. And, if you get a pant leg or skirt caught in your belt drive, you are more likely to get it back intact and grease-free. @toWseyfrenCh

what is your bikeStyle? B iking is a huge part of my life, but it doesn’t define my style. I can’t imagine myself changing wardrobes just to bike to and from work, and I have no intention of showing up to brunch in spandex. Most days I look for something that works well in all scenarios – somewhere between classic and kitschy. You’ll often see me on my vintage Motobecane Mixte sporting skinny jeans, heels and lots of layers on top. where are we most likely to spot your bike? Somewhere in the Pike/ Pine Corridor on Capitol Hill. I love biking the eight blocks to Elliott Bay Book Company or Oddfellows Cafe + Bar on a Saturday afternoon.

what do you like most about riding your bike? Biking just makes the most sense for me. It’s the easiest and quickest way for me to get around Seattle, but I’d be hesitant to say that’s what I like the most. Perhaps the best part is the thrill of being on my bike and feeling like a part of the city and its landscape – your perspective and awareness really changes on two wheels. what are your favorite clothes to bike in? My J.Crew Minnie cropped pants and Camper patent leather heels (a little stretch and a rubber sole make a world of difference).

what did you eat for breakfast? Greek-style yogurt and strawberries. what song is most played in your iPod? Lately – Lykke Li’s “Get Some.” basket or panniers? Basket. I thought about purchasing waterproof panniers for a while, but a basket just feels classic, offers a bit more flexibility and was much more affordable.
