Well, we'll be in it together! Does this mean kicking the other person's bum when one of us doesn't want to brave the rain? Perhaps! Does it mean helping each other stay on top of bike maintenance? Yes! But even better, I think this also means occasionally looking for and sharing inspirational material about biking - books, films, poems, events, and people.
I absolutely dislike cars and the like. I would love to completely depend on bikes to get around and to reject car rides when offered so people would be more exposed to this lifestyle. Unfortunately, there aren't many places nearby that people like to bike to but I would love to make it possible to everyone by raising awareness of biking and how safe it is- or can be when you are careful.
I just took my car off the road and have dedicated myself to improving using my 2 feet in whichever way I can to get around the city. I am rollerblading right now but really want to trying biking in the city as a faster alternative.
Can someone let me know when they have a bike to share?
I have JUST taken my car off of the road and am on my rollerblades for the summer! I am dedicated to improving my time-management skills during these sunny summer months so that when winter rolls around I have beaten my lazy streak and I do not put my car back on the road to save a mere 15 mnutes on my commute!
Ok Vancouver, I'm coming home. I'll be back in the park on the 10th of May. The boyos are waiting. If you've never gazed deep into the eyes of a heavy horse, you've never lived. We'll be meandering round Stanley Park and spinning yarns, telling tales telling the truth about Stanley Park... no not the politically correct hail to the far thinking entrepreneurs of old. No I shall tell you of greed and fighting and of politics and strange bedfellows... of cheatin and stealin and the mayhem that is the hidden legacy of the green jewel of Vancouver. We'll wander past the fallen giants of the Storms of '06 and wonder and speculate about their fate.
We've been using revived batteries successfully for electric bikes and scooters. Now, we have a 4-wheel electric vehicle that appears to be the first 4-wheeler to run only off "scrap batteries." By G. Tang and R. Matthies. First successful road run was on February, 2007, in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Gary Tang and I joined the hundreds of people at the Vancouver Electric Vehicle Assn fundraiser at Ridge Theatre in Kits. VEVA was showing its 1917 Detroit Electric car and there were other electric cars, but imho, only Gordon Wong's e-car was equal to a gasoline-burning (internal combustion engine, or ICE) car. The others were weak, or lacked durability -- one got wet, and had to be towed. However, a good point about joining the Car Co-op was stated, during the after-movie panel discussions: Use an e-car or ebike to get to a Car Co-op location, and rent the coop's car only for the few hours that long-range driving is needed. To me, that makes good sense.
