China enhances safety standards for e-bikes to curb road accidents :
https://news.cgtn.com/news/786b444f7867 ... are_p.html

Starts:
China has decided to put a brake on speed limits and enhance safety standards for electric bikes in a bid to control road accidents.

Globally, electric bikes, primarily admired for their low carbon footprint, have been under severe criticism for causing a large number of road accidents. Last year, New York announced a crackdown, while Singapore also adopted a similar approach.

In recent months, Beijing kept these bikes off the main roads but allowed it on arterial roads. On Tuesday, China formulated national electric bicycle safety technical specifications to enhance safety standards for such bikes.

Streetsblog connects people to information about how to reduce dependence on private automobiles and improve conditions for walking, biking, and transit. Since 2006, our reporters have broken important stories about efforts to prevent pedestrian injuries and deaths, build out bicycle networks, and make transit more useful. Our writing raises the profile of these issues with policy makers and turns arcane topics like parking requirements and induced traffic into accessible stories for a broad audience.
Shameful Scenes From de Blasio’s Crackdown on Delivery Workers Who Use Electric Bikes
("As NYPD boasts about confiscating bikes from people trying to support themselves and their families, cyclists continue to face the real mortal threat on NYC streets."):
https://nyc.streetsblog.org/2018/01/16/ ... ric-bikes/

Starts:
As promised, Mayor de Blasio’s crackdown on electric bikes is in effect. NYPD precincts are boasting about confiscating bikes from delivery workers in the name of Vision Zero, though there is no evidence that e-bike riders pose a significant public safety threat.
:roll:

Includes:
Announced last fall, de Blasio’s crackdown was triggered by Upper West Side resident Matthew Shefler, whose complaints about e-bike riders were amplified by WNYC. The city has produced no data to back up the mayor’s contention that training NYPD traffic enforcement resources on delivery workers — many of whom are immigrants, middle-aged or older, who need e-bikes to meet the physical demands of the job — will make streets safer.

Valley County bicycle trail could be completed by next summer:
https://idahobusinessreview.com/2018/01 ... xt-summer/

Starts:
A bicycle trail connecting the Valley County towns of McCall, Donnelly, and Cascade is one step closer thanks to a grant to help determine its feasibility. The study is slated for spring, and the trail could be completed by as early as next summer.

Valley County Pathways has been working to develop bike trails in the area over decommissioned rail lines, but was stymied because private property owners have been using that land and didn’t provide recreation access, said board vice president Steve Stuebner. “We realized we would need to look at other corridors as our highest priority,” he said.
Ends:
The grant was put together by the Mountain Central Association of Realtors, according to president Cory Corbet, a realtor at Century 21. “We liked the concept of getting more trail systems for bikes, and connecting communities from Donnelly, Cascade, and McCall, and making it a trail-friendly venue,” she said. “We were excited to hear they had this feasibility study they were doing.”

The singletrack system is a great benefit to the community, especially to people who want to commute between the towns via bicycle, said Corbet, who said she is a bike rider herself. Donnelly is about 13 miles from each of McCall and Cascade, she said, adding that the trail would also be a perfect venue for electric-assist bikes as well.

IMBA will take about four days to identify routes and drainage patterns, then a few weeks to produce the actual study, Mentzer said. “You could see us getting underway on construction within days of getting approval from the county,” he said. “It could be 2019, it could be this summer.”

Malta's source for breaking news, information and lifestyle.
... and:
On 14 June 2010, MaltaToday launched its internet news portal, bringing its journalism to a wider audience of readers, becoming the most read internet news service after The Times.
E-bike sales dropped by 90% after new registration rules
("Regulations might have stymied the sale of e-bikes but interest groups are hoping that budget measures will help improve the numbers"):
http://www.maltatoday.com.mt/news/natio ... l-uFrBG21j

:roll:

Starts:
There has been an 85% drop in use of all pedelecs and e-bikes, and bicycle vendors have reported a 90% fall in the sale of e-bikes since the government announced a registration scheme for 250w pedelecs, MaltaToday has learned.

“It’s time this rather stupid and hastily enacted law is repealed so that we can enjoy the same BEV growth in pedelecs as other EU states and look to effective enforcement,” Jim Wightman of the Bicycling Advocacy Group (BAG) said. “The group is campaigning to remove the registration of 250W pedelecs, remove the need for helmets, and calling for “clear targets and milestones for pedelecs and pedelec infrastructure”
Goes on:
“There are far more people on bicycles every day and it is time we started making infrastructure for them that is efficient and safe.”

KCCI is a CBS-affiliated television station licensed to Des Moines, Iowa, United States.
... and:
Des Moines is the capital and the most populous city in the U.S. state of Iowa. It is also the county seat of Polk County. A small part of the city extends into Warren County. It was incorporated on September 22, 1851, as Fort Des Moines, which was shortened to "Des Moines" in 1857. It is on and named after the Des Moines River, which likely was adapted from the French colonial name, Rivière des Moines, meaning "River of the Monks". The city's population was 203,433 as of the 2010 census.The five-county metropolitan area is ranked 89th in terms of population in the United States with 634,725 residents according to the 2016 estimate by the United States Census Bureau.
Electric bicycles emerge as a hot trend in US: :mrgreen:

Starts:
(CNN Money) —
After a brutal horseback riding accident, Joseph Marino Jr. felt like his freedom was gone. His days of giving horseback tours seemed over.

Following his third and final surgery in the spring of 2016 — a year after the incident — Marino knew he had to change something in his life.
Includes:
He is among the growing number of U.S. riders who are gravitating to electric bikes for convenience, health benefits and their fun factor. Although ebikes first appeared in the '90s, cheaper options and longer-lasting batteries are breathing new life into the concept.

"You honestly feel like you're floating," said Marino, who found pedaling easy for his recovering leg. "I felt like I was riding horses again. Instead of trails, I was road biking in and out of traffic."
"You feel like you're floating"... :mrgreen:

Includes:
Established bike companies and startups are embracing ebikes to meet demand. About 34 million ebikes were sold worldwide in 2017, according to data from eCycleElectric Consultants. Most were sold in Europe and China, where the bikes already have exploded in popularity. In 2017, the U.S. market grew to 263,000 bikes, a 25 percent gain from the prior year.
... and:
"This is the beginning of a multi-year shift away from regular pedal to electric bikes," Jump Bikes CEO Ryan Rzepecki told CNN Tech. "When people first jump on an ebike, their face lights up. It's exciting and joyful in a way that you don't get from a regular bike."

CNET (stylized as c|net) is an American media website that publishes reviews, news, articles, blogs, podcasts and videos on technology, ebikes and consumer electronics globally.
I biked Vegas during CES and lived to tell the tale
("I was on a mission to find the latest and greatest bike tech at CES. What better way to do it than by dodging the Vegas gridlock on two wheels?"):
https://www.cnet.com/news/ces-2018-bike-bicycle-tech/

Starts:
People sometimes look at me aghast when I say I bike to get around New York City. But when I said I wanted to bike Las Vegas during CES, the common reaction was outright denial.

"No! You can't!" was the knee-jerk response. Followed quickly by, "Is that even possible?"

During CES, Las Vegas turns into a chaotic galaxy of booth-packed expo halls, crowded ballrooms a half a mile deep inside casino resorts, and meetings in high-rise suites. Flung across a roughly three-mile stretch of colossal hotels and convention centers, the flood of people who attend CES -- about 184,000 last year -- creates a gridlock of humanity. Most people spend a good portion of their CES either in transit or waiting in line in order to be in transit.
:lol:

Includes:
But on the first drizzly day, my bike did the job. My first venture was a mile-and-a-half ride from the Renaissance to the Sands Expo Center, to check out Seattle Cycles' new electric folding bike.
... and:
I rode on sidewalks the entire way. Rude to pedestrians? Maybe. But Vegas is about as unfriendly for walking as it is for biking, so my route was free of walkers except for six folks I maneuvered around apologetically.

The e-bicycle by Seattle Cycles, called Metrobike, was a kick to ride. With an expected starting price around $1,000, it weighs less than 30 pounds and can fold small enough to fit under a desk. To get that tiny, the Metrobike has smaller wheels than a conventional road bike, but it passes the "hands free" test, said Mike Yap, the startup's CEO. On a smooth road, you can lean back in your seat with your arms hanging loose at your sides.

"If you have a twitchy bike, you don't feel safe," he told me before we took two Metrobikes on a test ride to a hotel parking lot, where a stranger approached us to say we probably shouldn't linger there or we might get robbed.
:mrgreen:

... AND:
Next up was the Electron Wheel, a $799 wheel with an electric hub that can electrify the bike you already own. Electron Wheel swaps into the front fork of almost any bike and works with a wireless pedal sensor on your crankset to give your ride an automatic boost and to help you climb hills. A five-hour charge provides a range of about 50 miles, with a top speed of 20 miles per hour.

The jolt forward from Electron Wheel's pedal assist felt peppier than the Metrobike experience. The ride felt smooth, but I was caught off-guard when I tried to lift the bike by its handlebars, with the 18-pound hub in the front wheel weighing it down. That weight didn't have a noticeable effect on steering as I tried out Electron Wheel in a parking garage where cars honked angrily to exit.
... AND:
A full-on e-bike was next on my agenda at the Flamingo hotel, about a mile away. A trip that would normally take me about 10 minutes in New York took a half-hour in Vegas, as I got lost in a warren of taxi lanes and parking garage directions behind Harrah's.

But when I reached the Flamingo, I met Smacircle's hustling CEO from China, wearing tan yellow shoes and a purple shirt, vest and tie under his grey suit. Smacircle is a folding, fully electric e-bike -- there are no pedals, and your seat doubles as a battery.

Crowdfunded through Indiegogo, the Smacircle folds its small wheels into itself and breaks down in five steps to a length of about 19 inches. At about 17 pounds, it's small and light enough to carry in a backpack. It can travel about 12 miles on a 2.5-hour charge and has a top speed of about 12 miles per hour.

E-Bikes Take Lead in Belgian Market: :mrgreen:
http://www.bike-eu.com/sales-trends/nie ... t-10132617

Starts:
KORTRIJK, Belgium – The Belgian people embraced e-bikes like in no other European market. A recent market study by ‘Velofollies’, the country’s biggest bicycle show, confirmed results of previous surveys which showed that the e-bike is currently the largest bicycle category in Belgium with a market share (in units) of 45%.
Goes on:
Despite the early 2017 turmoil in the country about number plates and whether or not to wear a helmet, e-bike sales keeps continuing steadily. That sales is supported by tax incentives of the national government. This also contributed to that fact that today more than 90% of all Belgium IBDs offer e-bikes in their showrooms.
:D
