  1. Careful for what you wish for?

    Yikes that was crazy busy. At normal speed not so much.

  2. That video is neat. The bike and bus sounds sped up sound almost industrial.

  3. Not a helmet in site.

  4. Stephen: I know! Isn’t that great?

    It would be fantastic to have streets so safe for cyclists that not only are helmets not mandated, but they aren’t necessary.

    I do know that some people in the Netherlands do wear helmets. Not many though.

  5. nice. Denmark, Holland… hopefully the whole world will bike sometime :)
    critical mass Budapest

    life to listen news on TV, thus I only use the web for that purpose, and get the most up-to-date

  7. Thanks for the good writeup. It actually used to be a entertainment account
    it. Glance complicated to more added agreeable from you!

    By the way, how could we keep up a correspondence?

  8. Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my
    comment form? I’m using the same blog platform
    as yours and I’m having trouble finding one? Thanks a lot!
