Why I Love Cycle Chic

The cycle chic movement started with a blog called Copenhagen Girls on Bikes. It was an apt title for the content, but it would never have gotten where it is today if pretty girls was all it was. Cycle chic is also part of the resurgence of cycling. Sadly many people today are not accustomed to everyday cycling and assume it must be very complicated. Cycle chic is a fast way of fixing this misconception. Cycle chic shows that cycling is a four-season, all-purpose form of transportation that anyone can do. Cycle chic is also an educated response to the idea that cycling is dangerous and requires special equipment.

Car industry talks bike helmets, silent on car helmets

Experience from Australia, France and Sweden shows that among car occupants who end up at the hospital, the head often has the worst injury. In Sweden, car occupants need more hospital days for head injury than any other road user group.

Engineers at the University of Adelaide have designed a helmet-like headband which would reduce the number of injuries by 44 %. For some reason the car industry has not picked this up. But they have started some campaigns for cyclists to wear helmets.

Cycling boosts local economies

Motorists like to point out that they pay a lot of tax, and it's true. In Europe, half the price of gasoline is made up of taxes. So, the reasoning goes, if people drive less the government's revenue will dry up. But it's not that simple, because if people drive less the money will likely end up somewhere else, like at the hairdresser's or at the local restaurant. And as half the price of gas consists of taxes, the other half goes to the oil industry. Motorists also send money to the car manufacturer, which usually is a company far away.

So reducing car traffic can be a way of rerouting this money to the local economy. In today's globalised, financially unstable world this is worth a closer look.

Summing up the Biosphere Conference EuroMAB 2011

It is hard to sum up a week with a lot of content and meeting new people, but it would be a pity not to give it a try, eh? My main focus during the week has been to understand what a biosphere reserve is and how it can contribute to sustainability. What has this ostrich to do with that? Find out below!

What is the Purpose of a Biosphere Reserve?

As I am new to the Man and the Biosphere program, I want to find out what the purpose of biosphere reserves is. I have scanned a few MAB webpages know, listened to a number of key note speakers at the first day of the EuroMAB 2011 conference and interviewed UNESCO programme specialist Meriem Bouamrane. But still it is not crystal clear to me.
