The News & Observer is an American regional daily newspaper that serves the greater Triangle area based in Raleigh, North Carolina. The paper is the second largest in the state after The Charlotte Observer. The paper has also been awarded three Pulitzer Prizes; the most recent of which was in 1996 for a series on the health and environmental impact of North Carolina's booming hogging industry. The paper was also one of the first in the world to launch an online version of the publication Nando.net in 1994.
Could electric-assisted bicycles be on their way to Durham?:
http://www.newsobserver.com/news/busine ... 31724.html

Starts:
If pedaling up steep hills or shifting through multiple gears on a bicycle is keeping you from hopping on one of Durham’s new dockless and shareable bikes, then a solution might be on the way.
Ends:
The electric LimeBikes are launching in existing markets this month – though it is unclear when they would be coming to the Durham area. A spokeswoman for LimeBike didn’t have any specifics to share on the roll out of the new bikes.

“If Durham is interested in having e-bikes, we'd be happy to start a conversation with the city to discuss the possibility of bringing them there,” said Mary Carolina Pruitt, a spokeswoman for LimeBike. “We see Lime-E, along with our existing fleet, as an integral part in solving that first and last mile transportation challenge.”

It is unclear when the release of Spin’s electric bikes will be. Efforts to reach the company were unsuccessful.

The Durham Transportation Department said that it would begin conversations about bringing both Spin and LimeBike’s electric-assisted bikes to the Bull City.

“We also just recently learned that LimeBike (and Spin) were launching an e-bike option,” Bryan Poole, a bicycle and pedestrian planner for Durham, said in an email.

“We will be discussing the possibility of bringing these to Durham with both of the companies. E-bikes have the same rules/rights as other bicycles as long as they are less than 750 watts and cannot go more than 20mph powered solely by the motor.”
:)

BTW... per Wiki:
Durham is a city in the U.S. state of North Carolina. It is the county seat of Durham County. The U.S. Census Bureau estimated the city's population to be 251,893 as of July 1, 2014, making it the 4th-most populous city in North Carolina, and the 78th-most populous city in the United States. Durham is the core of the four-county Durham-Chapel Hill Metropolitan Area, which has a population of 542,710 as of U.S. Census 2014 Population Estimates. The US Office of Management and Budget also includes Durham as a part of the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill Combined Statistical Area, which has a population of 2,037,430 as of U.S. Census 2014 Population Estimates.

Ahhhhh... Goes on:
At the Geneva Motor Show in January 2017, surrounded by the latest models in the car market, a bicycle became one of the most talked-about vehicles at the event. The attention was justified: the bicycle, which was designed by Bugatti and developed by German bicycle firm PG, combines the best of the sport and aeronautic industries in a carbon frame that weighs less than 5kg.

Includes:
Luxury biking
The search for solutions to urban traffic and pollution, plus rising awareness about healthy lifestyles, has boosted the use of bicycles in urban environments. As such, all segments of the market, including the high end, have grown.

Luxury is closely linked to convenience, and the ability to avoid rush hour and packed public transport is perhaps one of the biggest benefits of bicycle travel. At a time when European cities are incentivising cycling by improving their infrastructure for bikes, commuting on two wheels is easier than ever.

Riding in reverse: Bike company leaves Denver after one year:
https://businessden.com/2018/01/11/ridi ... -one-year/

:shock:
Haibike, a maker of electric mountain bikes that relocated to Denver from California a year ago, is backpedaling out of Colorado.

Ken Miner, director of sales for Haibike USA, said he let go of his six staff members on Dec. 31 at Haibike’s North American headquarters in southeast Denver.

The decision came from Accell North America, Haibike’s parent company, which is restructuring after the loss of business from major players such as Dick’s Sporting Goods and Sports Authority, according to Bicycle Retailer.

“Because of that, we’re streamlining business and putting everything under one group umbrella,” Miner said.

Accell will consolidate Haibike’s customer service, sales and administrative operations with its other brands in Simi Valley, California. In addition to Haibike, Accell’s brands include Winora, Raleigh and Diamondback.

“Haibike is being integrated into our U.S. E-bike Competence Center, located in Simi Valley, California, to improve service to our Haibike dealer customers that purchase our other brands, Raleigh Electric and IZIP eBike,” Larry Pizzi, president of Accell’s e-bike division, said in an email.

Haibike moved from Simi Valley to Denver last spring, partly because of the state’s positive reception for e-bikes and the state allowing them on more paths and trails. Miner said the state did not give Haibike any tax incentives to relocate.

Miner, who joined the company three years ago, said Haibike in North America was profitable in 2017.
“We had doubled our business every year for the past three years,” he said. :mrgreen:

Fox News (officially known as the Fox News Channel, commonly abbreviated to FNC) is an American basic cable and satellite television news channel owned by the Fox Entertainment Group, a subsidiary of 21st Century Fox. The channel broadcasts primarily from studios at 1211 Avenue of the Americas, New York City, New York.

The channel was created by Australian-American media mogul Rupert Murdoch, who hired former Republican Party media consultant and CNBC executive Roger Ailes as its founding CEO. It launched on October 7, 1996, to 17 million cable subscribers. Fox News grew during the late 1990s and 2000s to become a dominant cable news network in the United States.
Obama White House's lavish gifts from foreign friends revealed:

Cuban cigars and rum, sculptures decorated in gold, precious gems and even jewelry adorned in diamonds and rubies — all of them among the many lavish gifts the Obama family and administration officials received from foreign governments while President Barack Obama was in office.

In most cases, the Obamas and other officials handed over the gifts to the National Archives.
Includes:
Among other unusual gifts given to Obama by foreign leaders during his final year in office were a gold and silver sculpture of a Bedouin group decorated with precious gems, and a silver tone letter opener and pen worth $56,720 from Saudi King Salman. In addition, the president got a black electric bicycle worth $1,499 from the president of Argentina, who also gave the first family two Argentine national football team jerseys signed by star Lionel Messi that were valued at $1,700.

Efficiency is important, but it is time to get serious about sufficiency:
https://www.treehugger.com/energy-effic ... iency.html

Starts:
We do go on about energy efficiency, and how important it is to increase fuel economy and go net zero on our buildings and homes. Yet as Kris de Decker notes in a new article in Low Tech Magazine, we are bedazzled by energy efficiency but we are not really getting anywhere. He suggests that efficiency isn't enough; instead, we have to think about sufficiency:
http://www.lowtechmagazine.com/2018/01/ ... iency.html

Ends:
Where I think Kris is wrong is that we don't have to all freeze in the dark in our long johns in tiny rooms. We need better, efficient LED lighting, much better insulation so that we don’t have to get used to lower temperatures and thermal underwear; perhaps electric bikes for those who find regular cycling too hard. But it is important to realize that in principle, Kris is right. Increased efficiency won’t do it on its own; we have to change the way we live and the way we get around. It is all about sufficiency.

Report just out from LEVA - the Light Electric Vehicle Association - titled Ebikes in the USA,
2017 reach 260,000
:
http://www.multibriefs.com/briefs/LEVA/ ... he_USA.pdf

Watt starts:
eCycleElectric’s annual USA ebikes market estimate for 2017 is for a minimum of 260,000 units. eCE
found 215,000 ebikes imported into the USA during the 12 months of 2017, with an additional 15,000 thought to have
been built from parts by various assemblers.
Knowing that we do not find all the imports, from past experience, we add 10% as a likely margin of error.
This brings the totals to 263,000 for 2017.
Includes:
However, the brands reporting strong growth are the ebike specialist brands, primarily. We notice modest
growth among the traditional bicycle brands.
:mrgreen:

... and:
The number of entities importing ebikes has grown significantly - approximately 600 entities in 2017, as
compared to 135 in 2016.

EU Import Figures Indicate Hard Drop in Trekking, Road and MTB Sales:
http://www.bike-eu.com/sales-trends/nie ... s-10132553

Starts:
BRUSSELS, Belgium – Booming e-bike sales in many EU markets is proving to have a major downside. Heavy pressure on sales of conventional bicycles. This is clearly reflected in the EU import. Eurostat figures for the first three quarters of 2017 show that big shifts per country are taking place. They indicate a hard drop in higher-priced trekking, road and mountain bikes sales.

JUMP Bikes Cleared to Launch
("San Francisco Issues Permit for a Non-Ford GoBike Bike Share"):
https://sf.streetsblog.org/2018/01/11/s ... ike-share/

Starts:
This week, half a year after the city started offering a permit program for dockless bike share, the SFMTA issued its first permit for a non-Ford Go-bike share bike:

From the SFMTA release:

The permit has been offered to JUMP Bikes, a program of Social Bicycles, which offers an electric stationless bike share service. JUMP Bikes has demonstrated a commitment to San Francisco’s priorities of providing a safe, equitable and accountable bike share system and is the only company to have fulfilled the requirements of the SFMTA’s stationless bike share permit application.
:mrgreen:

Includes:
Motivate was supposed to have an exclusive arrangement to operate bike share in San Francisco. However, with the introduction of JUMP-style bikes, which are GPS-based and require no docking stations, it became possible to offer bike shares without having to mount dedicated bike share stations on city property.

Phys.org is a science, research and technology news aggregator where much of content is republished directly from press releases and news agencies-in a practice known as churnalism. It also produces some science journalism. It shares many similarities with ScienceDaily and EurekAlert! in the sense that all of them practice heavy churnalism.
Hehe... "churnalism"... :lol:

Beyond the car: how tech firms are exploring the future of transport:

Starts:
Carless commuting is cruising in the fast lane at the Consumer Electronics Show, with companies showing off electric bicycles, scooters, skateboards and more aimed at making the internal combustion engine a thing of the past.
Hehe... "cruising in the fast lane"... CAR-ADDICTED much? :lol: (Author can only reference the situation in 20th-century highway traffic terms...) :roll:

Includes:
GenZe, a US-based division of the Mahindra Group in India, this week announced its e-bikes will be added in April to a Ford GoBike ride-share program in San Francisco.

The e-bikes should "help to make San Francisco more livable and reduce congestion," Metropolitan Transportation Commission deputy executive Alix Bockelman said in a release.

... and:
Leading online social network Facebook has a fleet of 100 GenZe bikes for employees to get around its Silicon Valley campus, and they are also used by delivery services DoorDash and Postmates, according to Valasek.
