On my bike


 I realize now that on my trip, the fields I rode past, towns I passed through, and people I met were not there for me to experience. They were just there, and so was I – accident and necessity. During that week, I felt more connected and aware of my surroundings, more real, than I had ever been in the past. This is why I am riding the Great Divide– to escape mediation and be at the disposal of accident and necessity. Mediated by Thomas De Zengotita

Copenhagen Bike Rental said...

christania’s “bike rental copenhagen” bikes are rolling across the city. The system, less than a year old, is funded by christania’s municipal government. It is currently only in one of christania’s 22 administrative districts. Although a 2nd generation system, there are 12 “Houses” in this district, each with around 40 bikes. The yearly subscription cost is the equivalent of $2 US, and allows the use of a bike for up to four hours at a time. In less than a year, there have been 6,000 subscriptions sold. There are larger 3rd generation systems in the world, which do not have a subscription to bike ratio as big as that.
