AB gov’t to boost solar power use to over half of electricity needs
("The Government of Alberta has issued a request for proposals from large-scale solar energy providers to procure solar power equivalent to about 55 per cent of its annual electricity needs."):
https://energi.news/alberta/ab-govt-to- ... ity-needs/

Starts:
Solar energy a “priority for our government”: Sandra Jansen, Minister of Infrastructure

The Government of Alberta says it is looking for proposals from large-scale solar power providers to meet more than half of its green power needs.

A Request for Proposals (RFP) is now open to procure solar power equivalent to about 55 per cent of the government’s annual electricity needs. According to an Alberta government press release, “this will allow the province to replace existing green energy contracts with solar power, diversifying the economy and creating good jobs in a growing industry.”

Sandra Jansen, Minister of Infrastructure says renewable energy is a priority for the Notley government. “Using solar power generated in Alberta for government’s electricity needs advances new economic and investment opportunities with an energy sector that is growing fast,” said Jansen.

Through this RFP, the Alberta government is committed to purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) equivalent to 135,000 MWh of solar-generated electricity each year for the next 20 years.

That is enough electricity to power 18,750 Alberta homes for a year.
I smell electric bikes. :) Wonder if folks in "Oil Town Canada" (prov. of Alberta, dripping with fossil fuel aka the "Tar Sands") are basically "cutting their own (financial) throats"? :lol:

Electrek is a news site tracking the transition from fossil fuel transportation to electric and the surrounding clean ecosystems.
Hehe... where I can only find any mention about electric bikes first in "ebikes Stories October 2, 2015":

"The Sondors eBike is loaded with features, fat tires and insanely affordable price"):
https://electrek.co/2015/10/02/sondors-ebike/

Among the many new electric vehicles on display here at the Paris Motor Show, we stumbled upon a series of vintage and eye-catching electric bicycles developed by Barcelona-based Rayvolt bikes.

The bikes are an interesting fusion of retro styling with custom developed electric bicycle components.

Osburn Oracle
(from Ireland...)
(Wiki:)
Ballybough (Irish: An Baile Bocht, "the poor town") is an inner city district of northeast Dublin city, Ireland. Situated north of the Summerhill Parade /N.C.R. intersection to Drumcondra and east of the N.C.R. to the River Tolka at Fairview, adjacent areas include the North Strand and Clonliffe. Before its urbanization in the late 19th century, Ballybough was known as Mud Island, owing to its proximity to the mud flats that now form Fairview and environs. In 2013, Dublin City councillor Nial Ring started a controversial campaign to change the official Irish name from Baile Bocht to Baile Bog, on the grounds that 'Poor Town' was insulting to the residents. A counter-campaign was started by some Irish-speaking residents.
Electric scooters are on right path to less congestion in cities:
https://osburnoracle.com/electric-scoot ... ies/12025/

Starts:
Are electric scooters good or bad for Irish cities?

Because they‘re certainly getting more common. My walk to work each day takes me through the inner city areas of Ballybough and the North Strand. Both have had their share of trouble in recent years and are regarded as ‘tough‘ neighbourhoods.

But now I see young tech workers zipping about on electric scooters there. It‘s the same around other areas of the capital.

I can‘t blame people for resorting to the electric devices. For many, there are few better transportation options to fit their requirements. A car in Dublin is a non-starter, while buses often take three times as long. There‘s always a bicycle, but this can often be difficult to stow in an office.

(Wiki:)
The New Paper is a newspaper in tabloid form. It was originally published as a "noon paper", but since 2016 has been published daily as a freesheet in the morning from 7 a.m. onwards . ("Circulation Target 300,000 daily")
... and:
Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, is a sovereign city-state and island country in Southeast Asia. It lies one degree (137 kilometres or 85 miles) north of the equator, at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, with Indonesia's Riau Islands to the south and Peninsular Malaysia to the north. Singapore's territory consists of one main island along with 62 other islets. Since independence, extensive land reclamation has increased its total size by 23% (130 square kilometres or 50 square miles). The country is known for its transition from third world to first world in a single generation, under the leadership of its founding father, Lee Kuan Yew.

Stamford Raffles founded colonial Singapore in 1819 as a trading post of the British East India Company. After the company's collapse in 1858, the islands were ceded to the British Raj as a crown colony. During the Second World War, Singapore was occupied by Japan. It gained independence from the UK in 1963 by federating with other former British territories to form Malaysia, but separated two years later over ideological differences, becoming a sovereign nation in 1965. After early years of turbulence and despite lacking natural resources and a hinterland, the nation developed rapidly as an Asian Tiger economy, based on external trade and its workforce.

Singapore is a global hub for education, entertainment, finance, healthcare, human capital, ebikes and innovation (OK... maybe not ebikes...), logistics, manufacturing, technology, tourism, trade, and transport. The city ranks highly in numerous international rankings, and has been recognized as the most "technology-ready" nation (WEF), top International-meetings city (UIA), city with "best investment potential" (BERI), world's smartest city, world's safest country, third-most competitive country, third-largest foreign exchange market, third-largest financial centre, third-largest oil refining and trading centre, fifth-most innovative country, and the second-busiest container port. The Economist has ranked Singapore as the most expensive city to live in, since 2013. It is identified as a tax haven. Singapore is the only country in Asia with an AAA sovereign rating from all major rating agencies, and one of 11 worldwide. Globally, the Port of Singapore and Changi Airport have held the titles of leading "Maritime Capital" and "Best Airport" respectively for consecutive years, while Singapore Airlines is the 2018 "World's Best Airline".
... and:
Geylang is a planning area and township located on the eastern fringe of the Central Region of Singapore, bordering Hougang and Toa Payoh in the north, Marine Parade in the south, Bedok in the east, and Kallang in the west.

Geylang is known perhaps most infamously as a red-light district, particularly the areas along Geylang Road. Geylang is also where one of Singapore's oldest Malay settlements, Geylang Serai, is.
Fire involving ebike at Geylang, infant taken to hospital
("The fire involved a power-assisted bicycle"):
https://www.tnp.sg/news/singapore/fire- ... n-hospital

(Did we mention electric bikes yet?)

Starts:
An infant was rushed to hospital yesterday after a fire involving an electric bicycle broke out at the ground floor of a two-storey shophouse in Geylang.
(`Case we didn't mention electric bikes yet...)

Goes on:
A spokesman for the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) told The New Paper that they responded to the fire at 527 Geylang Road at 7.20am yesterday.

She said: "The fire involved a power-assisted bicycle and was extinguished by SCDF using one hose reel jet.

"As a result of the fire, one infant was taken to KK Women's and Children's Hospital."

TNP understands the child suffered from smoke inhalation and had been on the upper floor of the shophouse when the incident happened.

According to Chinese evening daily Shin Min Daily News, there were at least seven people living on the upper floor.
("OH. Mentioned "electric bike" already... So Sorry...)

Includes:
When TNP went to the scene yesterday, the shop was filled with damaged electronics items covered in soot. Fridges and vending machines were also seen outside the shop.

A man in his 50s who claimed to be the business owner entered the premises at about 3.30pm.

Declining to be named, he said the fire was caused by an electric bicycle, pointing at one that was badly damaged in the middle of the shop.

Shin Min reported that the store dealt in second-hand electronics and it had yet to open for business as it was still under renovation.

The electric bicycle is believed to have been in the store's pantry area when the fire broke out.

Unrelated... Singapore police report:
In the first half of 2018, the total number of traffic accidents which resulted in fatalities or injuries fell very slightly compared to the same period last year, registering

a) The number of traffic accidents resulting in fatalities in the first half of 2018

Hehe... ESB "Search found 64 matches: Santa Monica" ... in this thread. And now Micah picks up Uber/Jump bike share co. ... jumping to scooters. :lol:

Uber launches first electric scooter share, offers free rides in first week:
https://electrek.co/2018/10/03/uber-jum ... -scooters/

Starts:
Electric scooter share programs continue to expand at a rapid pace across the United States and the rest of the world. Uber, known for its ride-hailing service, doesn’t want to miss the boat. Seeking its own piece of the pie, Uber has just rolled out its Jump electric scooter share program in Santa Monica.
Uber’s Jump electric scooters

Uber recently purchased Jump, a dockless electric bicycle sharing company, in a deal reportedly worth over $100 million.

Jump bikes are available in 10 cities. Now Uber is leveraging Jump to add electric scooter sharing to their portfolio of services, in addition to ride hailing and electric bicycle sharing.

CEO Dara Khosrowshahi recently stated that the company expects electric bicycles and scooters to become the future of urban transportation. He believes that Uber believes it will offer just as many rides on electric bicycles and scooters over the next decade as they do in cars.

Newspaper serving Manhattan's Chelsea, Hudson Yards and Hell's Kitchen neighborhoods.
(Wiki:)
Chelsea is a neighborhood on the West Side of the borough of Manhattan in New York City. The district's boundaries are roughly 14th Street to the south, the Hudson River and West Street to the west, and Sixth Avenue to the east, with its northern boundary variously described as near the upper 20s or 34th Street, the next major crosstown street to the north.

To the northwest of Chelsea is the neighborhood of Hell's Kitchen, as well as Hudson Yards; to the northeast are the Garment District and the remainder of Midtown South; to the east are NoMad and the Flatiron District; to the southwest is the Meatpacking District; and to the south and southeast are the West Village and the remainder of Greenwich Village.
Get Thee to a Cyclery: Best Local Bike Shops:
http://chelseanow.com/2018/10/get-thee- ... ike-shops/

Starts:
Bike shops get us rolling. Whether they’re helping a beginner choose their first bike, keeping a trusty commuter on the road, or just serving as a quick pit stop for flat tires, a good bike shop can make getting around town a much more pleasant experience.

What separates a great bike shop from an average one? It has less to do with the price tag on the bikes than the knowledge of the staff — and their willingness to understand your needs. A bike shop should be sensitive to the customer’s budget and provide the best value solution. That’s why every shop featured in this article provides bikes at all almost every price point, from entry-level models around $300 and up to high-end models costing several thousand dollars. A great bike shop salesperson may even talk you down from a feather-light but uncomfortable racing bike to a workhorse that can handle Manhattan potholes on your commute up Eighth Ave.

Another key element of any cyclery is the mechanic shop....
Includes:
DANNY’S CYCLES | 653 10th Ave. | dannyscycles.com | Danny’s Cycles in Hell’s Kitchen holds the unique position of being a chain location that has retained its individual character over the years. The Hell’s Kitchen location was created six years ago from Metro Bikes, which had existed a block away for over 30 years. One longtime Metro employee still works with the chain to this day. Now, the chain is set to transition to the hands of Trek, the American bicycle manufacturer.

The staff expects to retain the same neighborhood bike shop culture that has kept the cyclery a neighborhood institution. Manager Charlie feels a special attachment to the working-class residents who the shop supports.

“Our customers are mostly blue-collar people,” he said. “The city isn’t cheap to live in. We’re empathetic to those people and we are those people.”

Another staff member, Jillian, echoed his sentiment.

“People that come in here are usually avoiding paying a monthly MetroCard. Biking is their mode of transportation. They rely on it. They use it to save money,” she said. “This shop feels very neighborhood friendly. Everyone that comes in here says they live two blocks away.”

In addition to the hybrids that are popular in stores across the board, as well as high-end road and mountain bikes, Charlie highlighted electronic pedal-assist bikes as a popular offering in the shop.

“The shop has earned the distinction of being the number one destination for electric bikes,” he noted. “It’s mostly people who want to make their commute easier or suffered some sort of injury and can’t bike like they used to. Then there’s the mom who wants to ride with her husband and friends who ride really fast, or the other way around.”
DANG. They gots some of them thar modern ELECTRONIC pedal-assist bike thingees... SO jealous...

NEW DELHI: Fuel prices are off the charts, touching as high as Rs 84-91 for a litre of petrol. It raises a concern among the petrol-powered vehicle users that when and where this price hike will take a rest. However, those who use an automatic scooter for their daily commuting needs can actually save around Rs 15,000 every year on fuel expenses by opting for an electric scooter. Let us tell you how.

Speed Pedelec Promotion Projects Started in Belgium and Holland:
https://www.bike-eu.com/sales-trends/ni ... d-10134642

Starts:
BRUSSELS, Belgium – In Belgium and in Holland promotion projects are being started in order “To optimize the potential of the speed pedelec for commuting.” Such projects are needed because sales of this e-bike category is indeed rising, but by no means shows brisk growth. At least, that what’s happening in the Netherlands.
:shock: 8)

... and:
“With the speed pedelec, quickly through traffic.” Under this motto, 11 employees of the University Hospital of Brussels have kicked off the Flemish mobility project 365SNEL last Friday. The objective of 365SNEL (SNEL is Dutch for ‘fast’) is to research and optimize the potential of the speed pedelec for commuting. To this end, in the coming year some hundred test riders will get the opportunity to try out a speed pedelec for free for three weeks.
Hehe... the Dutch. A people of few words. (In German, "fast" as schnell.)

Hehe... Includes: Further, punctual and cheaper ... Watts not to like? :lol:

Ends:
Fiscal benefits in Holland

Nico Van Elzen also mentioned that part of the research on speed pedelecs is an investigation into “the concept of bicycle leasing.” In the Netherlands that concept has already been taken a step further in the sense that fiscal benefits have been announced by the Dutch government.

These measures are like the ones that in Holland apply to company cars that employers make available to employees as part of their employment conditions. An employee pays extra income tax for the use of that company car. As from the start of 2019 a similar scheme comes into operation with company bikes. And in particular for company e-bikes as well as speed pedelecs. It results in the fact that employees that are using a company e-bike or speed pedelec that retail for about 3,500 euro, are being charged with an extra income tax of some 11 euro monthly. It means that net costs stand at about 5 euro. Such low annual costs of about 60 euro for the use of a 3,500 euro e-bike or speed pedelec is expected to result in rapidly rising sales.

In the Netherlands speed pedelec and e-scooter sales in the first nine months of this year was up by some 15%. Speed pedelec and e-scooter sales take up some 25% of the current moped sales in the Netherlands.

The countdown to the launch has started

With so many new competitors joining in the electric motorcycle race, we get to see e-bikes of all shapes and sizes, but none quite as explosive as the SOL Motors Pocket Rocket.
Hehe... Had thought "the countdown" had started years ago? Silly me...

Continues:
Is it a bazooka? Is it a missile? Is it a bicycle rack? SOL calls it a “noped”—not quite a motorcycle, not quite a moped. Its name: the Pocket Rocket. Despite its weapon-y design, the Pocket Rocket is a proper e-bike.

The tubular aluminum frame is mounted on two wheels with a fork suspension at the front and a coil spring at the back. The seat almost looks like an afterthought, awkwardly set on top of the main cannon. The wheels are fitted with hydraulic brakes with regenerative capability. The Rocket weighs in at 121 lb and in case the name of the e-bike and its shape aren’t rocket-y enough, the taillight is made to look like an afterburner.
Hehe... "a PROPER ebike"... not like all those fake ebikes... :lol:

Yeshiva World News (YWN) is an Orthodox Jewish online news publication. It also has multiple services catering to Jews all over the world.

Yeshiva World News started as a news aggregation blog. It has since grown to an independent news source with freelance reporters and photographers, in addition to continuing as a news aggregator. It is known for providing news of interest to the Orthodox Jewish community. Its web page header says "Frum Jewish News" (frum is the Yiddish term for a religiously observant Jew).

Israel: Electric Bicycle Drivers Will Now Face Fines For Illegal Driving and Have to Pass Written Driving Exam:
https://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/is ... -exam.html

Starts:
Israel’s Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz issued a statement on Wednesday stating that the Transportation Ministry has put together a plan of action with regards to how to deal with the licensing of electrical bicycles. The new plan includes a series of practical steps aimed at increasing safety precautions for electrical bicycle riders.

Currently, electrical bicycle riders fall into two categories in ISrael, those who have a license to drive a motorised vehicle, either car or motorcycle, and those aged 16 who are in the process of learning how to drive a motorized vehicle. According to the new plan that is set to take effect on January 1st, 2019, all students studying how to drive will be required to take a specialized course that will certify them to be able to ride an electric bicycle. At the end of the concise course there will be a written test. The National Ministry for Road Safety will oversee the certification of the new students.
Meanwhile... from history...
Bicycle Licensing

The City of Toronto has examined the idea of bicycle licensing on many occasions in response to concerns surrounding pedestrian safety, bike theft and compliance with the law.

Bicycle licensing has not been adopted as a solution to these issues. The studies asked what is purpose of licensing? If the goal is to increase cyclists’ compliance with traffic laws, and to reduce the number of conflicts with pedestrians and other road users, then licensing as an approach needs to be compared with other possible initiatives.

Is the creation of the major bureaucracy that licensing would require worth it? The studies have concluded that licensing is not worth it.

VanMoof's Electrified S2 is a seriously smart commuter bike
("The rear-wheel 'stealth lock' is a stylish improvement over the original’s chain system."):
https://www.engadget.com/2018/10/04/van ... -hands-on/

Starts:
VanMoof is almost ready to ship its next generation of electric bicycles. The Electrified S2 and X2 are vast improvements over their predecessors, with bigger batteries, nippier motors and smarter locking mechanisms. If you live in a city and fancy commuting on a bicycle, but fear conniving thieves and the potentially sweaty exercise required to reach the office, this could be your savior. During a two-hour test-ride in London, I was impressed with the S2's stylish frame, pedal-assisted power and integrated 'stealth lock.' It's not a cheap purchase, but few electric bicycles are at the moment.

Starts:
The Tel Aviv bicycle rental program Tel-O-Fun has announced that it will bring 500 bicycles and 50 docking stations to Jerusalem next year.

The company behind the iconic green bikes, FSM Ground Services, was awarded a tender to establish the automatic bicycle-rental service in the city by Eden, a subsidiary of the Jerusalem Development Authority.
Ends:
In August, the Los Angeles-based transportation company Bird deployed its electric scooter sharing service in Tel Aviv, offering another transportation method to the city.

Bird’s California-based rival Lime told Bloomberg News in September that it would be launching its own scooter-sharing service in Israel later this month.

Chareidei Yeshiva Student Moderately Injured After Falling Off His Bicycle:
https://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/is ... cycle.html

Starts:
A 15-year-old Charedi yeshiva student was riding a bicycle offroad when he fell and sustained serious injuries near Tifrach in the northwestern Negev on Wednesday. The boy was treated at the scene by United Hatzalah volunteer emergency medical responders and was classified as being in moderate condition.

The EMS teams managed to extricate the boy from the bicycle path by using one of the organization’s all-terrain vehicles (Unit 4). By carrying the boy on the front of the vehicle they were able to transport him to the ambulance that was waiting to take the boy to the hospital.

OVer the past year, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of bicycle accidents resulting in injuries and even death. On Erev Sukkos, Magen David Adom youth volunteer Ari Nesher was killed when the bicycle he was riding on was involved in an accident with a car.
Watt? NOT riding an ELECTRIC bike??? Better throw those cursed things in here...
Following the fatal injury, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu asked the Transportation Ministry to set up a committee that would submit a proposal with regards to how to combat the number of bicycle accidents, and in specific the number of accidents involving electric bicycles.
Sorry. Slow news day...

Specialized has reworked their Turbo Levo full suspension electric mountain bike, and is showing it off today at the Paris Motor Show. The newest addition to their lineup features reworked motors and batteries giving the bike the best technical specs of the line yet.

Last month we were on site in Reno for Interbike 2018 covering all the new electric bicycle announcements from companies big and small. Nearly every large electric bicycle manufacturer was on site debuting their newest models.

However, Specialized is one of the few bicycle companies that doesn’t normally attend such shows.

This time though we were able to catch up with them in Paris to get up close with their brand new Turbo Levo line.

Who's to blame for the fatal electric bike accident?
("Police spokeswoman defends interrogation of youth who allowed Ari Nesher to ride his electric bike, says Nesher's parents deserve justice."):
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/252754

Starts:
srael Police spokeswoman Merav Lapidot on Thursday spoke about police investigators' decision to interrogate and warn the youth who allowed accident victim Ari Nesher to ride an electric bicycle.

Nesher was run over last month while riding an electric bicycle in Tel Aviv.

"If he hadn't put him on the bike, Ari would still be alive today," Lapidot told Army Radio. in response to protests made by the interrogated youth's parents.

"Do they think that if he was injured, we won't investigate? How [else] would we bring justice to Ari's parents?" she asked.

Earlier today, the interrogated youth's parents slammed Israel Police, claiming that the police are trying to cover up their own failings by interrogating others.

"I arrived at the police station together with my son, and we sat there together," the youth's mother told Army Radio. "They began by harshly blaming my son, and they told him that he was investigated under warning and suspicion of negligence and causing his dear, beloved friend's death."

Is it an e-bike? Is it a moped? There’s a new two-wheeler causing a stir in the EV world, and bike enthusiasts are unsure what to make of it. Most are calling it an electric motorbike, but even this doesn’t seem correct. Designer SOL Motors calls it a “noped,” and goes on to say that the bike will define “a new category of electric two-wheelers.”

This claim may ring true. With a maximum speed of 50mph for the higher-end model and a weight of only 120lbs, the “Pocket Rocket” is rightly described by Electrek.co as “something else entirely.”

Stony Plain is a town in the Edmonton Capital Region of Alberta, Canada within Parkland County. It is located west of Edmonton adjacent to the City of Spruce Grove.

‘Hurricane’ Halmo blows through Spruce Grove
("Halmo is ready to not only reclaim, but crush that new benchmark. He pedalled his way through Spruce Grove on Tuesday, Oct. 2, dressed in a Flash Suit, and made sure to stop by the local Peavy Mart to tell residents all about it."):
https://www.stonyplainreporter.com/news ... ce-grove-2

Starts:
Losing his world record for longest distance travelled on a motorized E-bike did not sit well with Danny ‘Hurricane’ Halmo.

The 59-year-old who lives in Langley B.C. is currently on a cross-country tour the regain a Guinness World Record.

After a gruelling two years and more than 12,000 kilometres travelled across the country on his E-bike, Halmo received his official Guinness World Record in 2013. During that time, Halmo raised 6.4 tonnes of food for the food bank, to go with the 107 tonnes of food already raised for Hurricane Katrina survivors, earning him his now well-known nickname.

But before the ink could dry on his record, a competitor from the United States of America stole it from under him just over 13,000 kilometres. Now, Halmo is ready to not only reclaim, but crush that new benchmark. He pedalled his way through Spruce Grove on Teusday, Oct. 2, dressed in a Flash Suit, and made sure to stop by the local Peavy Mart to tell residents all about it.
Includes:
By adding a second motorized bike to the trailer Halmo is able to better distribute weight, and therefore can travel further on a single charge.

“I took a second bike and built the world’s first motorized electric trailer. Now I have twice the power and I’m still within the legal limit for an E-bike, because the Genze bike is a 250 watt bike, with a 32 kilometre top speed, and you can pedal it,” said Halmo.

When he is running low on battery, Halmo stops off at one of Sun-Country Eco-Rides over 4,000 country-wide charging stations, located at Peavey Marts, where the Genze E-Bikes are sold. This has allowed Halmo to complete the trip unsupported.

“Every Peavy Mart has an electric car charger. People need to know the sun country highway is the largest electrified highway system in the world. We have over 4,000 chargers across the country and they’re all free. You can drive around Canada’s roads in a 100 per cent electric car, and it’s free,” said Halmo.
Now curious... Anybuddy happen to mention to "Hurricane" that the Peavey Marts only cover the four western Canadian Provinces?

Lessee... "Sun-Country Eco-Rides"... with "over 4,000 country-wide charging stations"...:
https://suncountryhighway.ca/

... looks like a "Level 1" charger:

... plugs into "normal" 120VAC electrical outlets. [Phew]

Opinion// Israel's Electric Bikes Are More a Savior Than a Nuisance
("We need them because of our backward mass transit system, but the neo-Bolsheviks in the Knesset might screw things up"):
https://www.haaretz.com/opinion/.premiu ... -1.6531094

Starts:
Going out to a city center in Israel and coming home in one piece is no mean feat. It requires skill and combat fitness. If you’re a pedestrian, you need extraordinary agility to evade the deadly electric weapon speeding toward you. It zigzags on the sidewalk, goes through red lights, and crosses intersections diagonally.

If you’re driving a car, you have to pray not to run over a teenager riding an electric bicycle at 50 kilometers per hour (31 miles per hour), weaving in and out of traffic, not dreaming of stopping at red lights, not using a headlight or helmet. But of course he’s talking on his phone.

On the other hand, if we accept the proposals by the neo-Bolshevik Knesset members to solve the problem, we’ll get more regulation, more bureaucracy, more rules, more government, more taxes and more clerks – until we totally annihilate the elegant, green, effective and cheap solution the free market has found to overcome the government’s greatest failure: public transport.

No country in the West is as backward as Israel in its public transportation. This is a huge failure of Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz and his predecessors. It’s also the reason we have a quarter-million electric bicycles, creating the highest percentage in the world.

It will require a complete reimagining of how the Danish capital is powered and designed - and a lot of cyclists, officials admit.
