Day 9 of not driving my car. Today I have to commute into Carlisle, so my journey is a combination of the folding e-bike and the rail-replacement bus. Lovely ride to the station under a beautiful starry sky.

Born on this day, November 26:
Major Taylor, cycling legend (1878-1932). Taylor won the 1-mile sprint event at the 1899 world track championships to become the first African American to achieve the level of cycling world champion.
Happy #BicycleBirthday, Major!

I’ve worked in and for hundreds of cities all over the world. The cities that are doing amazing and innovative things aren’t cities with ideal weather, or topography, or size, or demographics, or wealth, or regulatory systems/powers, or even politics.

They’re the cities that have stopped making excuses.

The B & B Hotels-KTM saga is still going on. There is a race against time with less than a week left before it needs to find a main co-sponsor or be out of the peloton next year

Despite a report yesterday the team had told its riders to look elsewhere, which the Breton team immediately denied, team manager Jerome Pineau is still looking for the extra cash without saying much

My own view is that its now probably too late

Having seen a number of used, but only 5 year old, electric cars where the mileage capacity on a charge is down to less than 50miles I really have to say there is no way I’d buy an electric car. I’ll wait for hydrogen and in the meanwhile I’ll cycle as much as possible, walk, train and use car alternatives unless I have to drive. Cutting car use is more real and effective than changing cars. #ElectricCars

Even the Telegraph is now saying UK should embrace onshore wind farms. It's utterly ridiculous that we aren't putting up turbines all.over

Your Black Friday reminder that the economy is at least 50% more concentrated now than it was in 2005. Shop small if you can. Please.

Reducing traffic speed from 50 to 30 km/h in cities is now implemented in the Netherlands. The big issue here is that road design should be in line with the allowed speeds. This means that you can’t have separated bike lanes om 30km/h roads. Many of the 50km/h roads are too congested to allow mingling between cyclists and automobiles. To overcome this paradox Leiden implemented these traffic lights. They turn red when drivers exceed the 30km speed limit. Resulting in an almost serene atmosphere.
