Daily Roundup: Bus bike rack fails! Return of the L.A. bike fee, Lance does good, London bike planner

In Bicycle advocacy, Daily Roundup, Mountain Biking on June 25, 2009 at 10:28 pm

Just the kind of thing we all worry about: A bike rack failure on a bus going 60 mph. dodged the bullet this time, but as we in the Seattle area know, the Sportworks racks have their “issues.”

Los Angeles had a bike license fee, then rescinded it. Now they’re talking reconstituting it. Confusion reigns. From Bike Rumor:

A bike commuter “got a ticket for not having a license on his way home from trying to get a license where he was told they were out of licenses at the moment.”

And BikeRumor riffs on Lance Armstrong’s Twitter call-out re a Texas “3-feet-please” law that the governor may veto.

For the first time since 2005, the World Cup will return to the United States — in Windham, New York, for 2010.

Wonderful informative interview from with the city of London’s bike planner. Worth reading!
