Make a decision
In 1992, I began a trial separation from my car. I garaged my slogan-crusted Honda Civic for use in a pinch and made better friends with my bike. After spending the next year cycling, walking, taking transit, and sharing rides with friends, I realized I weighed less, felt better, had more money, and had used my car only eight times–hardly enough in justify paying registration and insurance. I sold the Civic and chalked up my first car divorce.
Since then, I’ve had other relationships with cars. I had a brief union with an electric car that ended in disappointment. I’ve had flings with rentals and trysts with taxis. I now have a cordial though distant friendship with a hybrid owned by my husband, but I’ve never again held title to an internal combustion car. My history has convinced me that nearly all of us can drive less, helping ourselves as we help the Earth. [Read More…]

Overlooked at home, Canadian cyclists ride for respect in Atlanta
They are household names in Europe, famous in the United States, and some rank among Canada’s most successful professional athletes. They are also becoming more visible-sponsors with products ranging from shampoo to doughnuts splash their faces on national television. But the fact is, Canada’s best cyclists remain largely unknown in their own country.

That, however, might all change in Atlanta. Over the past few years, Canada has put together a cycling team capable of pedalling to Olympic victory. Among the men, track rider Curt Harnett is a realistic medal hope, and relative old-timer Steve Bauer, 37-Canada’s most accomplished road racer ever-could once again summon a great performance. But the real cream of the Canadian crop is in the women’s team: mountain biker Alison Sydor, road racer Clara Hughes and track rider Tanya Dubnicoff will all be among the favorites in Atlanta. “The women’s cycling team,” says Harnett, “has put the fear of God into opponents.” [Read More…]
Cycling on roads
Biking ought to be the healthiest way to get around. But cycling on roads meant for cars can be a very dangerous form of transportation.
Last Friday, six bikers on a busy highway near Montreal were bowled over by a pickup truck in broad daylight. Three died, and the survivors were badly injured. Then, on Saturday, a cyclist on a rural road in Quebec’s Laurentian Mountains was killed by an alleged drunk driver. On the same day, Michael Bitton from Listowel, Ont., was struck and left in a coma while biking in Louisiana, where he attends graduate school and is a member of the Louisiana State University cycling team.
It was an unusually perilous weekend, and yet every year between 50 and 70 cyclists are killed in Canada in collisions with cars. Given the many advantages, both personal and environmental, associated with biking, society has ample motivation to reduce these accidents. [Read More…]
