Biking in Stockholm is finally prioritized

In today's DN there are two articles on biking in Stockholm. Biking in Sweden's capital city have been much debated the last years as the numbers of bikers have increased by 80% in 10 years. During this time the improvements in bicycle infrastructure have been minimal. Now as Dn reports there is a new plan to prioritize biking and making cycle possibilities more equal to those of cars and buses. Biklanes will be widened and better connected.
In the same paper there is also an article which headline indicate that the Stockholm air quality is to bad to be biking in. The article says that your life could be shortened by a week on average by biking an hour a day in this air. On the other hand the article also says that at the same time the excersise you would get from that hours biking would at the same time prolong your expected life time with a considerably longer period of time.

Bike Kitchen Malmö - Video

On Thursday the 31 of March, what is belived to be Swedens first bike kitchen, will open at Stapelbädden in Malmö. We meet up with Ola and Bertil, the founders of bike kitchen, to get to know more. Bike kitchen or Cyckelköket in Swedish will be a place where you take your bike and fix it yourself using the tools that will be available as well as guidance from the Bike kitchen crew. There will also be a plentiful supply of abandoned bikes that can be used for spare parts or even as foundation for a brand new bike. All in all a very good idea!

Malmö Lund Cycle Chic will be showing pictures at the opening party for Stapelbädden and Cykelköket. There will be a report on this house worming party later on.

Every fifth Swede considers to buy a new bike this spring

According to a survey quoted in DN today every fifth Swede is considering to buy a new bike this spring. Well... New or used would be more correct as almost half the deals are done over the net where secondhand site Blocket is the largest actor. Se if you can find a "new" bike on Blocket.

Very very cool

I think this girl is the coolest. not only does her clothes match her bike but she also have one of the coolest bicycle gadgets I have seen in quite some time; bottle holder mounted to the handlebar. The bottle holder of course does not hold a water bottle or a sports drink but a brand of soda internationally known for its high sugar content. Well done!

Last day of winter?

I took this photo some week ago but it actually snowed heavy yesterday as well. I think I share my wishes for sudden increase in temperatures with most Swedes right now.
