I've added a new feature this year to make it easier to view the ride listings using your smartphone. If you view Bike Rides in Indiana on your smarphone now you'll have two choices: check the ride listings, and check the radar. And really, that's probably all you want to see from your phone. This happens automatically, behind the scenes. If you check the site from your computer it will look the same.

Now I have added the QR code shown below. You can print that out and put it on your fridge, put it on the wall at work, or put it in your wallet/purse. Then, using a QR reader, just scan the image and you'll be taken to the Bike Rides' website. No having to start your browser, no typing the web address! It's really pretty slick.

QR code readers are freely available everywhere for iPhone, Android, and WAP phones. Please feel free to download the image and resize it if you like. I've resized it down to 0.5 x 0.5 inches and it works fine even at that size.

I hope you find this as useful as I do.

Falling Uphill: One man's quest for happiness around the world on a bicycle. In one week, Scott Stoll lost his job, his best friend, his girlfriend and his confidence. Disillusioned with society, full of angst, a lost and wandering soul with nothing left to lose, Stoll asked himself a question: If I only have one life, one chance, if I could do anything, what would I do? 

His answer resulted in a 4 year and 25,742 mile journey around the world by bicycle seeking answers to the great mysteries of life, vowing to find happiness or die trying. The quest wasn't easy. He was imprisoned, held hostage, mugged, run over, suspected of terrorism, accused of espionage, trampled, diseased, heartbroken—he nearly died a dozen times. But more importantly, he also discovered the wonders of the world, kindness among strangers, the meaning of life, peace, love and—Yes!—happiness, in the most unlikely places.

In 2001, Brendt Barbur, Founder and Director, was compelled to start the Bicycle Film Festival after being hit by a bus while riding his bike in New York City. Instead of being deterred by this experience, it inspired him to create a festival that celebrates the bicycle through music, art, and film. Now in its tenth year the festival is held in 37 cities worldwide. 300,000 people are expected to attend this year.

Hoima Bicycle

This documentary shows the process of designing a bicycle for and with Ugandan bicycle couriers, known as Boda-boda. Filmed primarily in Uganda, it shows the realities of current day East Africa, from the chaotic streets of Kampala to the inside of gritty mud-thatched homes in rural Hoima. In Uganda many residents use cheap, clunky bicycles for their primary means of transportation. Through a unique collaboration between an American designer and Ugandan couriers, a new bicycle design was conceived and a prototype was made.

A History of Bicycles Video

As dedicated cyclists -- both urban and suburban -- will agree, the bicycle is the greatest invention of the 19th century. Susan B. Anthony said it gave new freedom to women, to go where they needed to go with just a little pedal power. (OK, she didn't say that bit about pedal power, but she would have liked it.) And bikes are still providing the most fuel-efficient means of transporation since walking for all of us. Come take a tour of the Bicycle Museum -- and follow the intriguing past, present and future of the ever-green two-wheelers.

Bicycle Dreams is the true story of the Race Across America. They are seekers, madmen, and angels hell-bent on riding across America on a bicycle in less than ten days. But what begins as the adventure of a lifetime is transformed in an instant when tragedy strikes the race. These voyagers discover what is truly at stake as they pedal on, praying for the deliverance only the finish line can bring.

Death Rides on my Left
luvmastertx writes: I am a bicycle commuter. I am not a certified safety instructor. This video represents real world conditions. Not some imaginary utopian world that bicyclist hope to create. The important message is riding in the road has risk. These are some of the most common risk you will face. Cyclists are often as much at fault as motorist for the situations in which we find ourselves. If you trust motorist to do the right thing and drive safely you will be disappointed.

Bicycle Anatomy for Beginners
Five minute video which lovingly zooms into bike parts, and names them. "Watch this guide and you'll be talking bike in 5 minutes." The 'bespoke' soundtrack was made using bike parts (spokes, gear shifting, disc brake rotor twanging), recorded byin his garage and then made into music by Greg Johnston. It's bike tech techno: he calls it 'Bong. Psst. Twang. Whirr. Psst.'

IMBA Needs Your Help - TAKE ACTION to Increase Opportunities for Mountain Bicycling in National Parks

Fellow Riders - Please help IMBA win the biggest policy battle we have taken on in our 21-year history -- to increase opportunities for mountain biking in National Parks.

National parks represent the most treasured, iconic places in America and IMBA stands ready to help build and open trails in these epic, breathtaking lands. From a policy perspective, our national parks set the bar and it is critical that they embrace mountain biking as their policies shape those of state, county, and city parks.

We only have until Feb. 18 (a week from Wednesday) to submit comments, and five national organizations have waged an all out battle to defeat this proposed rule. Visit IMBA(dot)com and file your comments today! (Deadline Feb. 18)
