EU Adopts New Anti-Dumping Rules; Implications for E-Bike Case:
http://www.bike-eu.com/laws-regulations ... e-10132222

Starts:
BRUSSELS, Belgium – Yesterday, the European Council approved new anti-dumping rules to help protect the EU against unfair trade practices. They will enter into force by 20 December and have implications for the current EU anti-dumping proceeding concerning imports of electric bicycles originating in China.
Includes:
In the current anti-dumping case on e-bikes imported from China, the European Bicycle Manufacturers’ Association (EBMA) is using Switzerland as “a country with a similar level of economic development.” When comparing the prices for Swiss e-bikes “with Chinese export prices to the EU for the representative product types and for hub and centre engines. The calculations clearly demonstrate that Chinese producers are heavily dumping e-bikes in the EU, with triple-digit dumping margins”, claims EBMA. The manufacturers’ association said that, on the basis of price information by Chinese e-bike exporters, calculations show a lowest dumping margin of 193% and the highest one at 430%.
... and:
The text on the new rules for anti-dumping was adopted on 15 November by the European Parliament and on 4 December by the Council and will be signed in Strasbourg on 13 December. The publication in the Official Journal of the regulation is expected on 19 December. It will enter into force one day later.

More states enacting specific e-bike use, labeling and equipment regulations as popularity surges

On October 30, 2017, Michigan became the seventh state to adopt specific electric bicycle (“e-bike”) legislation joining Arkansas, California, Colorado, Illinois, Tennessee, and Utah. States like Ohio, Wisconsin, and Minnesota have e-bike legislation pending.

While PeopleForBikes and Bicycle Product Suppliers Association (“BPSA”) have done a commendable job in seeking to standardized the e-bike regulations across the different states, it is no surprise that each respective state statutory framework is slightly tweaked to meet the needs of their respective constituents - and Michigan is no different.

Some of the material differences and interesting notes from the Michigan legislation (HB 4781-83) are:

Includes:
Limestone hasn’t been quarried in this cave since the 1970s. But over the past 10 years, it’s operated as a subterranean park, with tram rides, zip lines, electric bicycle tours and an obstacle course — all along, or above, 17 miles of roads criss-crossing Mega Cavern.

https://buckrail.com/e-bikes-ok-pathways/

Starts:
JACKSON HOLE, WYO – An increase in the prevalence of electronic bikes prompted government leaders to look into safety and legality issues regarding two-wheeled bicycles with motors. State statute has not yet caught up with the trend to declare definitively whether an e-bike is considered a motored vehicle or simply a souped-up cycle. Currently, an e-bike is considered by the state to be a moped, basically.

While waiting on legislation, town and county officials met yesterday to make their own determination by ordinance of what would be allowed on the countywide pathway system and in roadside bike lanes.

Although it's currently a one-off, he does hope to put it into production.

The Times Colonist is the oldest daily newspaper in Western Canada. It was created by the 1980 merger of the British Colonist, which started in 1858, and the Victoria Daily Times, which began publishing in 1884. The British Colonist was founded by Amor De Cosmos, who went on to become the second premier of British Columbia. The newspaper has chronicled the history of Victoria and Vancouver Island from the gold rush days of the 1850s to Victoria's present status as a thriving capital city and an international tourist destination.

• Take advantage free covered bike parking with electric-bike charging stations at four parkades.

Students aim to reimagine transportation through electric bike social enterprise:
http://news.psu.edu/story/496920/2017/1 ... ike-social

Starts:
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Electric bikes, or e-bikes, look just like regular bicycles. However, e-bikes have a battery-driven motor attached to them that supplies power to the bike. This allows riders to choose to either pedal like on a traditional bike or assist their pedaling with power from the battery. Through the project, student researchers hope to provide an enterprise that will make electric bikes as economical and accessible as possible.


Includes:
Bharadwaj and Cusumano started meeting on a regular basis to discuss research methods, how to get project funding and exploring the e-bike conversion process in general. During a summer research project in 2016, the idea for Project BYOB was born. After more than a year of research and brainstorming, the project was officially founded under the Penn State chapter of Enactus on March 15.

Enactus, a nonprofit that connects student organizations with a wide range of corporations, has chapters at more than 1,000 universities worldwide. By working with Enactus, Project BYOB has connected with major retail corporations. Through these connections, the group aims to be able to buy their equipment wholesale and potentially market any conversion materials they themselves engineer.

E-Bike Importers on New EU Anti-Dumping Rules:

Starts:
GAND, Belgium – The Collective of European importers of electric bicycles has issued a statement on the announcement by the European Union that it will adopt new anti-dumping regulations by December 20 on which Bike Europe reported. The importers statement is here in full:
Includes:
Totally unrealistic

“”Using Switzerland as an analogue country, is no less than comparing apples and oranges. Average monthly wages in China in 2016 were € 730, in Switzerland € 5,730. EBMA states explicitly that the case focusses mainly on EPACs, but chooses an analogue country with the relatively highest sales of speed EPACs in the world. In 2016, 22% of all electric bicycles sold in Switzerland were speed EPACs. The much more stringent technical rules for these vehicles than for EPACs are only one element in much higher price levels than for 25 km/h EPACs. But supplying the lower end of the market does not automatically mean dumping. EBMA ignores this world of difference between Chinese and Swiss EPAC production, which allows for the calculation of triple digit dumping margins (from 193% to 430%) based on normal values of in between € 1,782 and € 2,544. This is totally unrealistic.
"In 2016, 22% of all electric bicycles sold in Switzerland were speed EPACs." :shock:

Cycling Without Age Seeks to Enhance Lives of Elderly:
https://www.spcitytimes.com/2017/12/06/ ... f-elderly/

Starts:
STEVENS POINT — Cycling Without Age: A worldwide movement that has a place here in Central Wisconsin.

Cycling Without Age Stevens Point is a local non-profit organization dedicated to providing the elderly, and those with differing abilities and means, to enjoy the outdoors on a bicycle in a social setting. Known as “trishaws”, these tricycle-rickshaw hybrids help those who want to experience activities outdoors, and do so with electric pedal assists than can seat up to two passengers.

While the program started all the way in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2014, the Stevens Point branch is the only central Wisconsin location. According to First District Alder Tori Jennings, it’s the smiles that make this venture more than worth it.

The Athens Banner-Herald is an under 20,000 circulation newspaper in Athens, Georgia, owned by Morris Communications.
... and:
Athens (formally known as Athens-Clarke County) is a consolidated city–county in the U.S. state of Georgia, in the northeastern part of the state about an hour's drive from the global city of Atlanta. It comprises the former city of Athens proper (the county seat) and Clarke County. The University of Georgia, the state's flagship public research university, is located in this college town, and contributed to its initial growth. In 1991, after a vote the preceding year, the original city abandoned its charter to form a unified government with Clarke County, referred to jointly as Athens-Clarke County. As of the 2010 census, the consolidated city-county (including all of Athens-Clarke County except Winterville and a portion of Bogart) had a total population of 115,452; all of Clarke County had a population of 116,714. Athens is the sixth-largest city in Georgia, and the principal city of the Athens-Clarke County, Georgia Metropolitan Statistical Area, which had a population of 192,541 as of the 2010 census.
Student projects aim to make UGA sustainable:
http://onlineathens.com/local-news/2017 ... ustainable

Starts:
Student projects next year could have bats once again soaring above the University of Georgia campus, grow medicinal herbs at the university’s UGArden, help launch mobile farmers markets and estimate the material and energy needs of greenspaces on the UGA campus.

UGA’s Office of Sustainability announced its latest round of campus sustainability grants Wednesday, and those were among this semester’s entries. The office and the grants are funded by a $3 per semester fee UGA students overwhelmingly voted to impose upon themselves to create the office in 2010.
Ends:
UGA food composting also began as a student project, he said. Food services operations now composts 100 percent of its food waste, keeping it out of landfills, he said.

At UGA buildings there’s a network of composting bins tended by a UGA student riding an electric bicycle.

According to a campus master plan, the university should recycle more and reduce energy and water consumption in the future.

The Daily Camera is a newspaper in Boulder, Colorado, United States.
... and:
Boulder is the home rule municipality that is the county seat and the most populous municipality of Boulder County, and the 11th most populous municipality in the U.S. state of Colorado. Boulder is located at the base of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains at an elevation of 5,430 feet (1,655 m) above sea level. The city is 25 miles (40 km) northwest of Denver.

The population of the City of Boulder was 97,385 people at the 2010 United States Census, while the population of the Boulder, CO Metropolitan Statistical Area was 294,567.

Gary Urling: City should require equal respect for traffic laws:

... watt mentions electrics only to lump them in with the pedal-only bunch... :mrgreen:

Boulder to take new look at neighborhood parking
With expansion of parking zones comes fear of 'spillover'
:
http://www.dailycamera.com/news/boulder ... ighborhood

Started:
With parking restricted on Spruce Street, Pine Street and Mapleton Avenue, commuters have started parking north of Mapleton, and Boulder is working to expand the city's Neighborhood Parking Permit program to the blocks of Seventh, Eighth and Ninth streets immediately to the north.
Included:
'Commuters are pretty much a protected species'

Gary Urling, who lives in Whittier near 16th Street and Mapleton, has off-street parking himself, but he sees many of his neighbors parking far from their homes because people park there to go downtown, whether to work or shop.

Rather than protecting residents, Urling sees the program protecting the ability of commercial developers to add offices without adding parking,

"The homeowners are willing to give up to two spaces per block face to support the businesses, but the businesses are not willing to do anything to support the neighborhood," he said. "The three-hour limit, they don't really enforce that. The commuters are pretty much a protected species because that allows the property owners on Pearl to have more people without providing any parking."
One might assume that Garys "off-street parking" are for his extensive range of ebikes...

12 Reasons Bicycling Will Continue to Soar in Popularity:
https://www.ecowatch.com/bicycling-soar ... 06297.html

Starts:
For too long biking has been viewed skeptically as a white-people thing, a big city thing, an ultra-fit athlete thing, a twenty-something thing, a warm weather thing or an upper-middle-class thing. And above all else, it's seen as a guy thing.

But guess what? The times, they are a-changin'. More than 100 million Americans rode a bike in 2014, and bicycles have out-sold cars most years in the U.S. since 2003.
Includes:
7. The Dawn of E-Bikes

This technological innovation—in which riders' pedaling can be boosted by a rechargeable battery—answers many of the excuses people have for not biking: hills, long distances, sweaty clothes, strong winds, hot weather, cold weather and not being able to carry things due to weight, said bike activist Randy Neufeld.

As of November 2014, it was the second most popular online newspaper in the UK with over 17 million readers per month; with over 21 million monthly readers,
Véliberté, egalité, fraternité: is Paris's once-seminal bike sharing out of date?
("Ten years ago, Vélib revolutionised Paris and inspired the world. But a new operator, higher prices and a hi-tech competitor have shaken its confidence"):
https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2017 ... ycle-share

Starts:
It was past midnight, I was new to Paris and the city’s municipal bike sharing system seemed something to be regarded with mistrust. It was the first time I ever used Vélib’. It’s hard to believe now, but in 2009 – before the Boris bike, before Uber, and in the bureaucratic world of France – being able to rent a bicycle from a machine using nothing but my credit card seemed too good to be true.

I took the bike out, paid the €150 (£130) deposit plus the 24-hour rental fee of €1, and pedalled on to the streets. The city’s Haussmann beauty sped by. It was like I could feel Paris shrinking just for me. The name, a portmanteau of velo (bike) and liberté (freedom) made instant sense. I only realised that I was cycling direct on to Charles de Gaulle Étoiles – one of the world’s most perilous roundabouts – when I was already there, counting three cars converge at me over the cobbles.

It is now 10 years since Vélib’ was established. The scheme’s trailblazing success has seen bike sharing reach almost 50 countries and roughly 1,000 cities worldwide.

Now Vélib’s operator, JCDecaux, which won the contract in part-exchange for advertising space around the city, has seen its tenure expire. Its successor, Smoovengo, a French-Spanish consortium that runs bike share schemes in 26 other cities, is ushering in a systemic overhaul, due to be complete by the new year. And with rival schemes based on a “dockless” model already popular in China recently being introduced, the French capital is gearing up for major change.
Includes:
Distribution is one of the main problems that Smoovengo’s overhaul is aimed at solving. The new bikes will offer a pile-up parking system, already trialled in Helsinki, on overcrowded stations. Also, a full 30% of the Vélib’ fleet will be electric, making it easier to reach the more elevated stations, such as those in Montmartre and Belleville, hopefully encouraging riders to use bikes for their tired end-of-day journeys as well as their morning ones.

Vandalism and theft have also marred Vélib’s progress, with initial rates far higher than JCDecaux had expected. Two years into the scheme, close to 80% of the bikes they had brought into use had needed replacing. Headlines were made when stolen Vélib’s turned up as far away as Romania, and when authorities dredged Paris’ Canal Saint-Martin last year no fewer than 98 were found in its depths.

https://www.endurancebusiness.com/2017/ ... n-channel/

Watt starts:
Play Sports Network, the company behind Global Cycling Network (GCN) and Global Triathlon Network (GTN), has confirmed the launch of the new Electric Mountain Bike Network (EMBN) channel, which will be presented by Steve Jones, the distinguished mountain biking journalist and former Dirt magazine Editor.

Jones joins in December, ahead of the channel’s full launch early next year, with Specialized and Haibike confirmed as bike partners.

Steve Jones is a highly respected bike tester with an ‘encyclopaedic knowledge of bikes, mountain biking and downhill racing’. Play Sports Network noted that over the years he’s discovered several iconic bikes and this natural curiosity has led him to become an authority on the growing trend of eMTBs.
