Diabetes type 2 symptoms: Do this form of exercise to help control blood sugar levels
("DIABETES type 2 symptoms are not always obvious, but can include peeing more than usual, particularly at night, feeling thirsty all the time, and feeling very tired. But a trendy exercise could be the answer to helping control blood sugar levels."): https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/he ... se-e-bikes

Starts:
Diabetes type 2 symptoms could be improved with the help of an electric assisted bicycle, according to a new study.

An ‘e-bike’ is a standard pushbike that comes with an electric motor, giving a rider extra assistance when pedalling, up to a maximum speed of 15.5mph.

Their popularity has been surging in the UK, and now experts from Bristol University's Centre for Exercise, Nutrition and Health Sciences say ‘e-cycling' could improve the health of people suffering with the condition

Galveston.com made its debut in the fall of 1994. It was the early days of the internet, and the site was simple, very small, and graphically cryptic. But it was the dawn of a new era regarding Galveston Island tourism.
(Wiki:)
Galveston Island is a barrier island on the Texas Gulf Coast in the United States, about 50 miles (80.5 km) southeast of Houston. The entire island, with the exception of Jamaica Beach, is within the city limits of the City of Galveston in Galveston County.

Bird Scooters And Dockless Bikes Search For A Home In Atlanta
https://www.wabe.org/bird-scooters-and- ... n-atlanta/

Starts:
Birds seem to be Atlanta’s thing – think Hawks and Falcons – and now a new bird is in town. Unlike the city’s sports teams, it’s a new way to get around.

They are known as Bird scooters, and hundreds of them seemed to show up in the city almost overnight.
:lol:

Includes:
Options soon aren’t going to be limited to Relay or Bird. A company called Lime has already applied for a permit to bring its dockless fleet or bikes and scooters to Atlanta.

CRE Opinion: How Dockless Bikes Fit into Downtown’s Mobility Plan
("How those bright-colored bikes fit into our bigger mobility plan—and daily lives—in downtown Dallas."):
https://www.dmagazine.com/commercial-re ... lity-plan/

Starts:
Some call them clutter. Others call them transportation. Two wheels for fun. More wheels blocking our paths. This is the push and pull of bike share in Dallas.

Since dockless bike share first entered the market last fall, like all transportation, downtown has been the hub of activity—the center of excitement and the root of much consternation.
Includes: In addition, technology advances like electric bikes and scooters and integrated mobility platforms have potential to be big game changers.

The Colorado Electric Bike Expo Highlighting Riese und Müller and Blix e-bikes

Join us to Celebrate a Couple of Our Favorite European Vendors

Date: May 26th 2018

Time: 10 am - 5 pm

Location: 1919 Federal Blvd. Denver, CO 80204

Denver, Colorado: The heart of bike season is almost upon us, so help us welcome some of our German and Swedish friends with some good food, music, and, of course - some awesome bikes. This month’s Colorado Electric Bike Expo will be featuring all the latest brands, models, and accessories including the brand new Riese und Müller Supercharger and deep discounts on the beautifully styled Blix bikes. German manufacturer Riese und Müller has been producing great bikes since the introduction of the first full suspension folding bikes back in 1995. They’ve come quite a way since then into the electric bike world and have recently unveiled their newest pedal-assisted electric bike with the built in dual Bosch Powertube powered Supercharger. Our favorite Swedes over at Blix have become one of the fastest growing electric bike brands in America due to their perfect blend of style and smooth performance at a great value.
Notice how lots of folks are "one of the fastest growing brands in America"? :lol:

Traffic?! French diplomat, entrepreneurs use e-scooter:

French diplomat Yves Zoberman has scootered from Rockwell toQuezon City and Pasay City.

Starts:
At 65, French diplomat Yves Zoberman can use the embassy car as a privilege. But unlike other men of the right age, he’d rather get around the metropolis on an electric kick scooter.

The counselor for cooperation and cultural affairs of the French Embassy claims it takes less than five minutes to travel from his digs at Rockwell to his office on Gil Puyat Avenue in Makati.

Zoberman brings the e-scooter to the office and charges it as he does his laptop. The e-scooter has been part of his lifestyle in getting around the 3-km radius from his office to the French Embassy residence in Forbes Park, or his Pilates class in Bel-Air, Makati.

The Santa Cruz Sentinel is a daily newspaper published in Santa Cruz, California, covering Santa Cruz County, California...

Santa Cruz County, California, officially the County of Santa Cruz, is a county on the Pacific coast of the U.S. state of California. As of the 2010 census, the population was 262,382. The county seat is Santa Cruz.
LETTERS
The Sentinel welcomes your letters to the editor. Letters should be short, no more than 150 words. Be sure and include lots of whining and crying (sells more papers). Thank you.

Letter: E-bikes not appropriate for residential areas:
http://www.santacruzsentinel.com/opinio ... tial-areas

Starts:
I am very disappointed with our city government’s decision to allow Social Bicycles, a national for-profit company, to place Jump Bicycle electric bicycle hubs in residential areas. We are allowing this company to turn a profit, under the guise of providing a sustainable transportation alternative, by exploiting the natural beauty of our coastline. [Blah Blah Blah]
Ends:
A bike share program is an excellent idea for our city. However, contracting with an out-of-area company, rather than designing a nonprofit program that is in keeping with the ethos of our town, is a slap in the face of us who live and work here.
(The REAL concern pops out...) :lol:

Starts:
The ride-sharing company called Lyft may start renting out scooters. Lyft is exploring the possibility of starting to rent out electric scooters in San Francisco.
Includes:
One of the big questions that Lyft has to answer is how can the scooters be locked when not in use so they aren’t stolen. Another big question is how can the scooters be tracked if they are stolen. Because the scooters are relatively portable, theft is an unfortunate possibility.

Services for investors, brands, distributors and retailers.
Starts:
In the UK, I believe we will see e-Bikes accounting for 50% of sales by value within three years. Thereafter, I’d suggest 50% by volume within eight years. You just have to look at Europe and anybody could guess that may happen.

But I’ve come at it from a different angle, studying the demographics of the UK and our bike buying habits at different stages of our lives. And I have some worrying news. I suspect it won’t just be about the growth in e-Bikes, it will also be about a steadily accelerating decline in conventional bike sales.

Cheap, Eco-Friendly Transportation with Just A Little Extra Help
("Epic Cycles is proud to offer Magnum’s new line of electric bicycles, an affordable, environment-friendly alternative for today’s modern urbanist."):
http://www.crossroadstoday.com/story/38 ... extra-help

Starts:
With gasoline prices in a state of rising flux, 2018 is the year of the bicycle. Epic Cycles is taking this idea to the next level with Magnum’s electric bike line. Imagine being able to hop in the bike lane and bypass all that gridlocked traffic on the way to the office without having to sacrifice speed. Most bikes can top 20-28 MPH which is significantly quicker when compared to the average car speed of 18 MPH while city driving.

Don’t think that’s all easy driving! Peddling is still required while the electrics give that extra push uphill and against the wind. While being a great green alternative to automobiles it’s also a great way to keep in shape. According to health statistics, 6.3 million Canadians, or 1 in 4 adults were obese as of 2011-2012, and that number keeps rising. Age restrictions are lighter across most parts of Canada as well with age minimums running between 12 in Alberta and up to 18 in Quebec. For specific law requirements, please visit the Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Regulations website.

Powell River Peak and Peak Weekender provides local news, community stories and information for the Powell River area.
(Wiki:)
Powell River is a city on the northern Sunshine Coast of southwestern British Columbia, Canada.[2] Most of its population lives near the eastern shores of Salish Sea, which is part of the larger Georgia Strait between Vancouver Island and the Mainland. With two intervening long, steep sided fjords inhibiting the construction of a contiguous road connection with Vancouver to the south, geographical surroundings explain Powell River's remoteness as a community, despite a relative proximity to Vancouver and other populous areas of the BC Coast. The city is the location of the head office of the Powell River Regional District.

An Electric Bike That You Can Tuck Away:
https://www.forbes.com/sites/scottkrame ... d16eec74a4

Starts:
I can understand the attraction of a fold-up bike. In its smallest footprint, it can store easily in a small apartment or office, pack into in an RV for a camping journey, be carried onto a commuter train to get to and from work, or be easily transported in a car trunk to a more convenient bike-riding location. It’s all about the portability.
Image
And that’s why I really looked forward to trying the Vika+ folding electric bike from four-year-old company Blix. It’s a cool concept. The 49-pound bike has fold-up pedals, handlebars and frame -- reducing its footprint to about half of its regular size. The manufacturer says that it folds to 34” x 27” x 20”. Folding and unfolding it are rather quick and simple processes -- the frame simply requires a latch to be unhinged. No tools required. When the folding is complete, strong magnets hold the front and rear sections together, allowing you to easily carry.

Medium is an online publishing platform developed by Evan Williams, and launched in August 2012. It is owned by A Medium Corporation. The platform is an example of social journalism, having a hybrid collection of amateur and professional people and publications, or exclusive blogs or publishers on Medium, and is regularly regarded as a blog host.

Williams developed Medium as a way to publish writings and documents longer than Twitter's 140-character maximum.
Cycling changed my life, and I never want to own a car again: :mrgreen:
https://medium.com/@ow/its-time-to-cons ... 7afbd0775f

Starts:
Three years ago when I moved to the Netherlands, I knew the cycling culture would be intense going in, but what I wasn’t prepared for is how it would redefine my view of cities, and how I interact with them.

Growing up in New Zealand, you learn pretty quickly that a car is the beginning and end of living there. Until recently, you could get a license at 15, and most of us did. If you don’t have your driver’s license, you’ll find yourself left out of events, asking your parents for rides, or navigating a near non-existent public transit infrastructure.
Includes:
Then comes the attitude change: Dutch road laws tend to favor the cyclist in the case of an accident, and will almost always side with them. Most Dutch healthcare includes free basic dental insurance, in case you break your front teeth falling off of your bike. Dutch roads are reorganized to require cars to give way to cyclists in almost every instance, and drivers are trained while learning to drive about how to interact with cyclists and be aware of them.

I saw this first-hand in a trip to San Francisco last week. Uber’s recent acquisition of JUMP bikes means cheap electric bikes are readily available around the city in an app everyone already has anyway, and it utterly changed the way I interacted with it on this particular trip.
... and:
Electric bikes are a game changer; now it’s time to fix the cities.

The Thomas Register of American Manufacturers, now ThomasNet, is an online platform for supplier discovery and product sourcing in the USA and Canada. It was once known as the "big green books" and "Thomas Registry", and was a multi-volume directory of industrial product information covering 650,000 distributors, manufacturers and service companies within 67,000-plus industrial categories that is now published on ThomasNet.
Ford Partners on AI-Driven, Smart Bike Tech:
https://news.thomasnet.com/featured/for ... -bike-tech

Starts:
Ford recently teamed with Trek, Shimano, and nine other leading bike makers to develop a bike-to-vehicle or B2V communications platform that will build on an artificial intelligence platform to help improve safety.

Software company Tome is also part of the mix, and actually started working on the communications protocol last year by developing mapping and infrastructure identification programs. A key goal of the B2V team will be creating a universal standard that all auto manufacturers and bike makers can implement.

The system focuses on driver alerts to help reduce bicycle-vehicle collisions. The AI comes into play by introducing algorithms that can identify the potential for accidents based on time, locations, and environmental variables. The system uses these data points to alert B2V-connected drivers and cyclists.
Includes:
This means non-electric bikes will need power sources like batteries or, potentially, rider-powered rim dynamometers.
