An estimated 600 cyclists gathered on the streets of London last Friday to commemorate the three deaths of cyclists during the London Critical Mass. The event was initiated after bloggers and forum posters sent out messages to pay respects to the three cyclists who died in recent road accidents.

Prof. David Vilaseca met a fatal accident on the corner of Tower Bridge Road and Druid Street last February 9. On March 9, Muhammad Ahmad suffered a deadly collision with a truck on the corner of Weston Street and Snowsfields, almost in the same vicinity as that of Prof. Vilaseca’s accident. Then on the day after, another cyclist named Shivon Watson was killed in East London, on Victoria Park Road.

The three deaths occurred at a time when the mayor of London had just launched his Cycling Safety Action Plan. This plan, however, was criticized as “inadequate”, and a…

If you will be cycling at night, then you must tell the road of your presence with Pedalite lights. Most accidents encountered by cyclists are 75% caused by the side close to an intersection. Most think that it would bring too much of a hassle if you would carry some generator right in your pedals due to its possible additional weight.

This is just one of the usual troubles that Pedalite secures to steer their customers away from. They never ever have any weight issue. For all you need to do is to clip it in along with the extra toe cages. They also offer metal stubs to keep the feet secure and safe during the entire ride.

They also offer the Anklelite which comes with a band that you can wear around your wrist, boots, arm and ankle. You can prove its level of comfort that even a dog…

Bike manufacturer Cannondale has announced in its blog that their conceptual commuter bike called the Jackknife will now be going into production as the ONBike. The Jackknife concept bike was a stunner when it was introduced a few years ago, sporting the single-sided fork technology from Cannondale and eliminating the need for a rear triangle in the process.

Cannondale previously had no plans of going into production with its conceptual urban commuter, but due to “overwhelming support and interest”, the company is now moving its conceptual design into production as the ONBike. However, there will only be 250 ONBikes slated for production, with each unit individually numbered.

What makes the ONBike design so special? Well, this urban commuter boasts of a unique drivetrain system that incorporates an enclosed casing with a connecting beam to the bottom bracket and rear wheel. This is built into one…

Republic Bike introduces a novel concept for a classic product to the enthusiastic lovers of high-quality bicycles with its build-your-own Dutch city bike offering. The bike is called Plato, and you can have it for only $399.00.

Dutch bikes are famous for their quality, both in the building of the bike and the ride itself. If you have ever wanted to ride your very own Dutch bike but have been frustrated by the rather high prices being asked for, then this is the chance you have been waiting for to enjoy a world-renowned classic.

Buyers have the option to customize their bikes before delivery. However, the term “customize” may be a bit of a misnomer here, since the only customizing you’ll ever do is for the colors.
