- WaPo on BikePlanner. "There is a limit to what a map can provide. Only someone who travels through an area knows about a particularly steep hill or an endlessly congested spot. That’s where the hive mind comes in. BikePlanner relies on OpenStreetMap, an open-source service that is basically a map version of Wikipedia. Maps can be edited, and users will be able to draw on the collective experience of Washington bicycle riders to plan routes."
- Game theory and track cycling. It's OK to go slow - or even stop. Sometimes it's good to intentionally crash. But never, ever, ever half-ass badmitton.
- The New York Times new transportation reporter didn't know how to ride a bike, so he started taking classes. "According to a federal survey conducted in 2002, 3 percent of Americans 16 or older who did not use bicycles said they abstained because they did not know how to ride." WABA has similar classes, in case someone ever asks.
- A bicycle made out of cardboard. Maybe someone will make one to compete in next year's bike fest. It reminds me of this (even though on rewatching it, I realize the box is not made of cardboard).
