Bicycle powered home appliances could provide the ultimate 2-in-1 solution for many people (ie. get some exercise while doing your chores). A great example of this is a bicycle-powered washing machine created by a fellow who goes by the name Homeless Dave. The spin cycle is powered by bicycle, as is a TV for entertainment during the “spin”. As for the dryer…well, I suggest a clothesline.

Other than riding, that is.
How to make cycling popular? Get famous people to do it! Well, that could be one strategy, I guess.
Anyhow, here is a fun music video by British pop star Lily Allen. And yes, she is riding a bike.
Found this over at Momentum.

The city of Portland, OR is regarded as one of the most bicycle friendly cities in the U.S. and even the world. What has Portland done right? Well, as this video points out, it’s a number of factors: support from the city, community history, and the general atmosphere, to name a few. A few decades ago, Portland was not a bike friendly place, per say, but it just goes to show that living amongst others who utilize the bicycle for transportation makes it easier for others to take part in the activity as well. So what can we do in cities that are not yet as bike friendly as Portland? Ride!
(Sorry for the commercial at the beginning.)

This is a great video by John Bonner on the seemingly impossible task of cycling to Boston from the towns located north of the city. He brings up some really important issues about cycling and city planning, and he spices it up with a bit of humor and sarcasm. Well done!

I posted a video a few weeks ago about Sue Abbott, an Australian woman who was fighting a fine for not wearing a helmet while riding a bicycle. Here is the follow-up video of Sue’s court case by documentarist Mike Rubbo.
