Hami and Mia

Hami Ramani is a neurologist who has a big interest in making biking safer and reducing the usage of cars. He’s now in Portland and seems to be leading a resurgence of active transportation advocacy in the area.

Jason Aufdenberg says, “Dear Sprocket Podcast, I enjoyed the discussion on bike commuting in EP 571! Like Guthrie, I too am interested if anyone is making bike maps with routes that optimized for shade. One easy upgrade that will make many city bike maps more usable is to make the maps available as a geospatial PDF files. This type of file, on your phone, allows you to see your location on the bike map using only the phone’s GPS signal, no internet connection/data plan required. My city, Daytona Beach, has no official bike map so I made one of my own and published it as a free geospatial PDF file that works with the Avenza Maps App. More info on my map here. I’m curious if any other Sprocket Podcast listeners live in places with no official bike map and have made their own maps.

Bradley Bouch told us about the Tour de Tulips in Orange City, Iowa.

E566 – Rethinking Streets During COVID-19 with Marc Schlossberg and Rebecca Lewis



 

A streetscape with a protected bike lane on the left and car lanes on the right

Marc Schlossberg and Rebecca Lewis from the University of Oregon talk about their new open access book, Rethinking Streets During Covid-19, part of the Rethinking Streets project, and how cities around the world changed streets for pedestrians, bicyclists, and more during the pandemic.

The Stuff We Talked About
Rethinking Streets
Sustainable Cities Institute
Bicycle Transportation Study Abroad

Headlines
Forget Tech Bro Fantasies of Self-Driving Cars and Just Invest in Buses Already
Via Bike Portland, in the New Republic: “What we need are not more energy-efficient cars or self-driving cars or, as Zimmer fantasized, privately owned fleets that are available for hire, but fewer cars entirely. We need people biking, walking, taking buses and trains and subways, or otherwise riding in something besides a free-ranging, 3,000-pound metal exoskeleton with an error-prone operator, digital or human. If safety is often cited as a prime reason for developing autonomous vehicles—about 36,000 Americans die in car accidents every year—then perhaps a better way of saving lives is to have fewer cars on the road, replaced by mass transit and other public options.”

Mail
From long-time listener and Patreon supporter Emma Rooks: “After listening to Guthrie and Joan talk about herbs and herb spirals a few episodes back, I wanted to share the one my girlfriend and I (mostly her) put together recently. It’s still waiting on some seed starts to hurry up and get ready to be planted.” Emma inspired Joan to finally plant her own her garden.

Where’s the Beef?
As electric vehicles become more popular, a growing number of detractors have come out of the woodwork to express their anti-electric car views. While most just simply turn to social media to voice their opinions, there are a few out there who have taken a more hands-on approach.

All Bodies on Bikes

“Kailey Kornhauser and Marley Blonsky are on a mission – a mission to change the idea that people in larger bodies can’t ride bikes. The duo aims to make cycling more inclusive, beyond just inviting people of all sizes to ride bikes, but by changing the entire idea of what it means to be a cyclist — not just on screens, but on trails and in people’s minds.” This is a new short film from Shimano. 

EVENTS

Biking for Big People Webinar, April 13 & April 22, 5:30pm PT, led by Marley and Kailey, covers issues of concern to bigger folks on bikes, including gear like types of bikes that work for larger bodies, seat choice, and clothing, and has practical tips for shopping at bike shops, shifting, gears, building endurance, bike fit, pain while riding, and much more. 

Would also be great for folks who lead bike clubs and groups, to think about making your events inclusive to a range of folks.

Air quality soars in school streets that banished cars

From the Times of London, a report on new research that showed that “closing roads around schools to traffic at pick-up and drop-off times has cut toxic nitrogen dioxide levels by up to 23 per cent” after pollution sensors were installed at 18 primary schools in London, and then streets were closed right around the school at half. (Then we hit the paywall.) 

What Happened to Pickup Trucks?

“As U.S. drivers buy more full-size and heavy-duty pickups, these vehicles have transformed from no-frills workhorses into angry giants. And pedestrians are paying the price.” By pedestrian safety expert Angie Schmitt, in Bloomberg City Lab. A great overview of the change in truck design. Also mentions the concept of petro-masculinity, which I talked about a few months ago.

Less traffic, more death: A bizarre 2020 should make us rethink our transportation priorities

Thanks to new data from the Federal Highway Administration, we now know just how many cars vanished from the roads. Americans drove 13.2 percent fewer miles in 2020 than the year before. On average, Americans drove less last year than in any year since 1989…

Even as the number of miles traveled on American roads fell in 2020, the number of traffic deaths rose by 8% – to more than 42,000, with an estimated 4.8 million injuries requiring attention from a medical professional. The estimated cost of all those deaths, injuries and property damage from crashes: $474 billion.

E557 – Peter Flax



Peter Flax

We take a moment to chat with Peter Flax,

Peter Flax is a journalist and lifelong cyclist. As the editor in chief of Bicycling magazine, he got to cover the Tour de France and ride more than 500 different bikes. He has ridden with Eddy Merckx, Greg Lemond, Miguel Indurain—and has maintained a complicated relationship with Lance Armstrong. He has ridden cross-country and raced bikes for year with great passion and little success. Six years ago, Flax moved to Los Angeles, where his bike life has become centered around transit riding, and that experience has shifted the focus of much of his writing to advocacy. If pressed to express his mission statement, Flax says that anyone riding a bike is doing it right.
