After successfully closing Times Square and Broadway in 2009, the city of New York is looking to ban cars in the Central Park Loop starting in 2015.
Today, we’re taking a close-up look at the German-made TWIKE. A 50 MPH, all electric, human-pedaled hybrid that nearly won the Automotive X-Prize!
Need a mood booster today? Regular exercise and time outdoors are big contributors to happiness, and you can get both of those things by riding your bike!
Built by crowdsourcing favorites Local Motors, the electric, adult size BigWheel above is called the Verrado- and this drift trike is every kind of awesome.
Stunt harder, faster, and weirder with a BMX Rocker minibike, which promises full-size performance from a pint-size frame and guarantees ALL the attention!
Environmental issues aside, we all know Americans are at the mercy of expensive gas prices and we all frankly need more exercise in general. When it comes to saving money and getting fit a bike is a relatively inexpensive alternative than a car. However, studying a place where bike riding is prevalent shows it’s own distinct set of problems.
As a bike commuter living in San Francisco a few years ago, I was very impressed at the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition’s ability to get new bike lanes put in (increasing bike safety quite a bit), to get bicycle safety training to thousands of riders, and to lobby the city council for any number of […]
The new-for-2013 Voltitude is an all-electric, Swiss Army bicycle that promises high-end folding construction and a 25 mile range. Perfect for commuters!
Introduced last year at the Oregon Manifest bike competition (which it won), the Faraday Porteur is finally (almost) coming to market. All they need now is $100,000. The bike itself is a pedal-assisted ebike that Porteur likens to having an “electric tailwind” everywhere you ride. Having ridden a few ebikes in my time, I think […]
Whether it’s slinky lingerie, cheap beer, or electric cars: sex sells. I’m not gonna lie to you, either – I didn’t even notice the bike underneath the girl’s skirt on first glance. Hiding a product between a pretty girl’s legs is usually a bad sign, which makes me think that BRINK’s owners have made a […]
As any car guy will tell you, the most entertaining motoring show on television right now is Top Gear. But while I enjoy the antics of Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond, they are not exactly what you would call green car friendly. Their portrayal of the Tesla Roadster drew a lawsuit, and the […]
In what can only be described as a deliberate act of road rage, friend and Gas 2.0 writer Susanna Schick was struck by a car on Friday night while riding her bicycle. She’s conscious and being well taken care of, but was seriously hurt with six broken ribs, a broken collarbone, and a broken pelvis. […]
Car’s are not a cheap proposition, and with rising fuel costs, they are only getting more expensive. But it can be hard to put a number on just how much cars are really costing us in the long run. Streamline Refinance came up with this handy infographic and, if the figures are to be believed, a car is actually costing you a lot more money than you realize.
Happy Hump Day! Halfway through the week, and the world of green news keeps on a spinnin’. Some of today’s highlights include a new record run for the Predator electric racing motorcycle, police ignoring crime because of high fuel prices and slashed budgets, and BYD finally starts selling EV’s in China.
It’s only Tuesday, but there are some pretty big stories floating around the net. Some of this morning’s highlights include an electric Fiat 500 caught testing in Michigan, China has more shale gas than the U.S., and Mitsubishi’s clean new cargo hauler.
Cycling is a huge part of urban life already, and – as gas prices climb and the desire to be more ecologically responsible becomes more mainstream – it is becoming an even huger part. Even major automakers are starting to push out electric bicycles! It’s understandable, then, that as bikes and cyclists are enjoying something […]
To what extent should one follow the law? That’s the question raised by a pissed-off New York City bicyclist, who was ticketed for riding outside the bike lane. His argument; sometimes the bike lane isn’t the safest place to be. First, I’d like to address this guy’s slight superiority complex. Stating “I’m doing the world […]
We’re all about getting around in the most efficient way possible, but comparing trains and cars and buses and biking can be quite a headache. Luckily, the fine people at Wellhome have provided with an infographic that does just that. I could blather on and on and on about the info in this graphic, but […]
The concept of tiny homes is not new- hello, yurt! But the small house movement has been more of a subculture, until, we hope, now. “Mainstream” construction company D.R. Horton’s introduction of 29 microhomes to Portland’s Division 43. D.R. Horton is taking advantage of an opening in the “nichest” of niche markets, Portland, OR, to […]
