Why Isn’t It a Crime To Kill a Cyclist with a Car?
Nc bike01 cover
*The number of Americans who commute via bicycle jumped by 64 percent between 1990 and 2009, yet the laws that protect them have lagged behind.

In most states, the only law explicitly addressing bike safety is a safe passing law requiring drivers to give cyclists a cushion of anywhere from two to four feet. In only three states is it a felony offense to maim or fatally injure a bik... nextcity.org/features/view/...

Riki Bryan, founder of the Hard Boiled Holistics “functional movement studio” in New York City, has a surprising perspective on gyms: He doesn’t like them. “I’d rather be cycling or surfing or doing something fun outdoors,” he says. “But in NYC, it’s hard to do that on a daily basis. So, I thought, how do I keep my body ready for those times when I do those sports?”

The DJ, designer, and cyclist developed a unique fitness philosophy that borrows from tai chi,

I’m 44 and I Want to Get Rad
Get rad 02

The jump is fearsome, a steep wall of soil, frozen in a curl like a wave at Cortes Bank, motionless outside of geologic time. But there’s a twist: It doesn’t crash down on you. You crash down on it.

The consequences of said crashing aren’t exactly the same, but it feels close enough when you’re in your mid-40s and acutely aware of gravity and your lack of mastery of it. Acutely aware of being self-employed and purchasing your own h...

As executive director of Bikemore, a local cycling advocacy group, Cornish was giving a tour of the system to urban planning students from Morgan State University. She had hoped to show them how bike share worked and what it could do for the city.

What she found was a network in bad decline.

“It was spotty. It was isolated,” she said. “Out of two major stations, we were only able to get two bikes to wor...
