If you’re a fan of vintage steel and work-bikes there’s a couple of interesting lots in an auction coming up from Bonhams & Goodman. An artist called Dennis Baker is selling off the contents of his studio, and amongst the prints, posters and furniture are a 30’s ‘Elswick Hopper’ delivery bicycle, an ‘early French ladies bicycle’ and a 1930s ‘Healing’ delivery trike. You can go and have a look this Friday and Saturday, and the sale is on Sunday (Map).

So show your support for Sydney’s pedal-powered transport option by taking a free ride today.
As part of Jetstar’s launch of cheap flights to Asia, Jetstar has sponsored pedapod in Sydney for 1 week to offer free passenger service rides in the CBD. This is a “hail and ride” service, just like a taxi. You can use the service to get between city offices, to get between shops and public transport, to get between entertainment areas and public transport hubs, or just to enjoy a ride for the experience.
Jordan Baker reported in the Sydney Morning Herald today that,
|The discount airline’s website yesterday buckled under the demand for $169 one-way flights to Bali – including taxes. Return trips to Vietnam were selling for $398, and one-way flights to Osaka for $249….Everyday, all-inclusive, one-way fares range from $409 for Bali, $489 for Ho Chi Minh City and $549 for Osaka.
…Each passenger receives a bottle of water on boarding, and a water cooler is onboard for refills.

and an article by Michael Duffy. It's interesting that they use portland as a city where public transport is declining. That's probably because Portland is such a fantastic place to ride your bike around, not because people are sitting in cars on freeways.
