We’ll be covering Interbike again this year, and this time we want to hear from you, our readers. We’ve been bombarded with invitations from the various electric bike exhibitors, as well as other exhibitors. Some things we will absolutely not miss, but others we’re not sure we’ll have time for. Here’s the full exhibitor list.
This week I visited Detroit for Further with Ford, where I had the pleasure of listening to Ford’s top brass tell us about their vision of a future where far fewer people choose to own cars.

In a new wave of socially and environmentally conscious planning, Barcelona is taking back its streets from cars. The plan will convert up to 60% of the streets from road to green spaces, bike paths, and a boardwalk for pedestrians.
