Bicycles - World's Most Efficient Means of Transport
by Hostelio, , submitted 2 September 2009

Man on a bicycle can go three or four times faster than the pedestrian, but uses five times less energy in the process. He carries one gram of his weight over a kilometer of flat road at an expense of only 0.15 calories. The bicycle is the perfect transducer to match man's metabolic energy to the impedance of locomotion. Equipped with this tool, man outstrips the efficiency of not only all machines but all other animals as well. [...]

Bicycles are not only thermodynamically efficient, they are also cheap. With his much lower salary, the Chinese acquires his durable bicycle in a fraction of the working hours an American devotes to the purchase of his obsolescent car. The cost of public utilities needed to facilitate bicycle traffic versus the price of an infrastructure tailored to high speeds is proportionately even less than the price differential of the vehicles used in the two systems. In the bicycle system, engineered roads are necessary only at certain points of dense traffic, and people who live far from the surfaced path are not thereby automatically isolated as they would be if they depended on cars or trains. The bicycle has extended man's radius without shunting him onto roads he cannot walk. Where he cannot ride his bike, he can usually push it.

The bicycle also uses little space. Eighteen bikes can be parked in the place of one car, thirty of them can move along in the space devoured by a single automobile. It takes three lanes of a given size to move 40,000 people across a bridge in one hour by using automated trains, four to move them on buses, twelve to move them in their cars, and only two lanes for them to pedal across on bicycles. Of all these vehicles, only the bicycle really allows people to go from door to door without walking. The cyclist can reach new destinations of his choice without his tool creating new locations from which he is barred. [...]

Explore California's Santa Ana River Trail - A Bicycling Adventure
by Nick Calif, , submitted 30 June 2009

The Santa Ana River Trail spans over 120 miles through Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties in Southern California. The trail is one of the largest non-motorized social boulevards in the United States. It is utilized by school kids, workers, walkers, runners, bicyclists, horse riders, bird watchers and its parks and open spaces are social gathering places for kids, families and communities. It is a favorite bicycling route in California. The Santa Ana Rover Trail is paved with handicap accessibility. Along the Trail there are parking areas, picnic tables, restrooms and local restaurants.

Friends of the Santa Ana River Trail is a volunteer community group involved in trail safety education, eco-friendly preservation and recreational multi-use of the Santa Ana River Trail system. Also, known as the Santa Ana River Bikeway, Santa Ana Bicycle Path and SART. Our goal is to encourage a high quality, family oriented trail system that blends an attractive mix of recreational amenities, neighborhood green space, and local cultural heritage allowing people of all ages and abilities the pleasure of outdoor recreation in a fun and safe environment.

As Santa Ana River Trail advocates our community oriented goal has three main parts: 1) to enhance public safety of the Santa Ana River Trail through public education and volunteer community watch; 2) to encourage the socio-economic recreational use of the Santa Ana River Trail as a conduit for connecting local communities, neighborhoods, families, friends and workplaces together; and 3) to act as the Santa Ana River Trail Mediator resolving trail use disputes, complaints, and injury.

7th Hillclimb to Mount Zavizan in Croatia from 0 to 1594 m
by Rajko Malojčić, , submitted 11 April 2009

For 7 years an amateur MTB race ``Hillclimb to Mount Zavizan from 0 to 1594'' starts from the Adriatic shore up to the mountain peak Zavizan at 1594 m. Last year organizers had to limit the number of participants because they could not accomodate them all in the tiny haven Sveti Juraj. This year they decided to extend the race to 40 km and move the starting place to Senj. You can learn more about the event which shall start on Saturday 20.06.09 from Senj by searching Yahoo or Google for ``Hillclimb Zavizan'', ``Aufstieg Zavizan'' or ``Uspon na Zavizan''. Race has no commercial interests and organizers want only to bring cyclists together and introduce them to the beauties of Mount Velebit forests. Information offered by .

Cycling before Lycra

The Twizi hostel directory - the cheapest places to stay on the planet
by Patrick Sexton, , submitted 6 January 2007

[The author travels around the world and reviews hostels, and has built up a large hostel directory.]

What are hostels?

The quickest answer I can give to you is that hostels are budget accommodations where you share a room with other travelers. To be more specific though and to give you a better idea of what to expect I will say that a hostel room is like a hotel room but instead of being just one bed there are a couple (or a few) bunk beds. There are also (gasp!) other people. People you do not know! These other people are travelers who are most likely very much like you in the sense that they are exploring and traveling and doing it as absolutely cheaply as possible. Hostels have been around a long long time. There are over 20,000 of them around the world. Hostels are very much a part of the culture of Europe, and are starting to be known in the USA as well. Hostels are a cheaper way of staying in a city where you do not live.

Programma IBAS week end MTB Val Calamento Lagorai Malga Cere
by Marcello Stampacchia, , submitted 22 October 2013
language: it

Ancora pochi posti per il tour di 2 giorni in Val Calamento nell'ultimo fine settimana di ottobre. Itinerario in Val Calamento, una valle poco conosc iuta e poco frequentata dove gli impianti di risalita non esistono e i rifugi ospitano i veri escursionisti di una volta e, oggi, anche i bikers.

Boschi alpini che nel periodo prescelto si colorano di macchie rosse e gialle dei larici che cambiano colore. Sentieri, piste e single track tutti da god ere nei panorami di un luogo conosciuto da poche persone per valli e resti di fortificazioni della p rima Grande Guerra.

Vi proponiamo un week end con due notti presso la M alga Cere, un rifugio alpino gestito da una coppia di giovani amici di IBAS e Percorsi Etnici, Giulia e Gigi, che vi faranno sentire dei veri appassionati a casa vostra. La cucina di Giulia e G igi è biologica, una vera rarità nei rifugi d'alta montagna, e il menù proposto è tipico trentino. La stagione sta per andare via ma se siamo fortunat i coglieremo uno degli ultimi week end senza neve. In caso di nevicate precoci o maltempo previs to dal giovedì sera rimandiamo tutto a Primavera.

Il tour viene condotto da una guida locale che per l'occasione ci accompagnerà per tracce a noi sconosciute spiegandovi anche i luoghi più signifi cativi toccati.
