- Fabian Cancellara wins Silver
- London's bike sharing system starts. 4700 biks at 400 stations for $70 a year. No tourists for the first month.
- Retired Admiral, one-time candidate for Senate, executive director of the state Department of Veterans Affairs and the son of former Gov. LeRoy Collins, LeRoy Collins Jr. was killed while biking in Florida (which I believe is the most dangerous state for cycling). Driver, of course, didn't see him. "Collins... was hit while riding in a crosswalk near downtown Tampa at about 6 a.m., police said. The 27-year-old driver was making a left turn and apparently didn't see Collins." It has been ruled an accident, and no charges will be filed. He was wearing a helmet for those who care.
- Remove 8 car parking spaces, get 74 bike parking spaces. In Portland, of course.
