Time for a change

To quote an often repeated phrase, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans”

After 20 years online, the old Self-Propelled City site was looking a bit dated to me. And new posts on it had slowed to a crawl. So tonight I decided to just chuck it all and start fresh with a site that will make adding content a breeze.

Most of the original content will get added back somehow. I’ll figure it out. ¬†But tonight is not the night for that. ¬†Tonight I throw caution to the wind and start something new and try to capture some spontaneity and exuberance at the temporary expense of a well thought out plan of action.

There’s so many new and positive things happening now for bicycles in cities all around the world! I want to collect links to news reports of this Bicycle Renaissance here.

I’ll be talking about the explosion of interest in cargo bikes, the urban bike rental initiatives picking up steam, folding bikes on public transit, city-bike “style pioneers” like Linus and much more.

Read and ride with me . . .
