A tandem bicycle is something you do not se everyday. Here is Jenny and Ronja riding their Cresent tandem in Lund.


A bike for two is a bike for friends!

Excelent article on cycling, bicycle helmets and traffic safety

Erik Sandblom writes a lot of god articles on biking but this one I find especially interesting. Statistics clearly show a very strong correlation between city's were people bike a lot and citys were people do not use bicycle helmets:

The conclusion is simple and you might have heard it before; biking should be kept simple! No helmet, More simple!

In addition the article also shows this interesting diagram (from Trafikanalys):

It is very clear that the risk of getting killed per kilometer traveled is much higher when biking than when driving a car (4 times higher). However the risk of dying when walking is actually much higher,  times higher (almost double compared to biking). Yet, no one would argue that you should wear a helmet walking. The contrast to the travel modes where helmets are currently requested by law in Sweden is stunning. It is so much more dangerous to drive a moped or motorcycle than even to walk...

However, if we look not at risk of dying by traveled kilometer but by time spent driving a car, biking or walking that kilometer we see that each of these transport modes is about equally safe while driving a motorcycle or moped is much more dangerous.

Magnolias are kind of a trade mark of the city of Lund. This is in my view one of the most beautiful ones. It is not one of the largest but it is nice and located right in the city center.

Also in the picture is a very cycle chic girl wearing a great classic spring outfit.

Stockholm; the bike trend continues

The number of bikes in the streets of Stockholm have ben increasing fast and steady for several years. Latest surveys shows that this positive trend continues. Politicians has also recently realized the incredible possibility's that lies with increased city biking and are now planning to invest big bucks in bicycle infrastructure.

The payback time of such investments should be very short when considering factors such as improved mobility, lower costs for car infrastructure, lower air pollution, lower noise pollution, decreased health problems and increased feeling of well being for the citizens of Stockholm.

DN have a good article on the subject it is worth reading mainly as it includes a few wise words from fellow bike blogger Elin Bandmann from Put the fun between you legs.

Winter Biking

A good thing with a bike is that you can always walk it when the ground is to slippery. Check out the nice vintage bike. Lund is really the world capital of vintage bikes.
