Bike News Roundup: That dreaded engineering manual

The Manual: The Movie from Cantankerous Titles on Vimeo.

  • To start things off on a solemn note, Arizona cyclists ride in honor of Rep. Giffords. Giffords went on a bike ride the night before the shooting.
  • But in happy news, a study in Baltimore shows that bike projects create twice as many jobs per million dollars spent as car-related projects. How many jobs will the Deep Bore Tunnel create? How many million dollars does it cost? Hmm…
  • Missoula to St. Louis on a bike? Sounds grueling (and fun!). Well try it on bikes from 1896 on poor roads. The Buffalo Soldiers did it, reports Tubulocity.
  • Custom frame builder Natalie Ramsland talks about biking while pregnant.
  • Our region’s rainy winter rides sure have funny names, Biking Bis points out.
