A New Start

Changes

Over the 3.5 years that EcoVelo was active, we generated 3,320 posts of various sorts including road tests, product reviews, op-ed pieces, technical articles, advocacy and infrastructure news pieces, and a myriad of other tidbits related to using bicycles for transportation. Along with our regular daily blog posts, we also curated an extensive commuter bicycle gallery, a large collection of bicycle commuter profiles, and various bike-related photo contests.

On January 1, 2012, we put EcoVelo into stasis due to time constraints and changing priorities. We’ve kept the site live on the web as a resource for the transportational bicycling community, but we haven’t made any additions to the site since then. Our plan was to permanently close down the site on January 1, 2014.

The good news is that our friends at NYCeWheels in New York City have stepped up to take over as owners/administrators of EcoVelo. We couldn’t be happier about Bert and his staff picking up the reins. Besides being one of the largest dealers in the U.S. specializing in folders, e-bikes, and scooters, they’re doing great things to promote human-powered transportation in the New York area while providing support and education for transportational cyclists through their extensive web presence. The transition will be gradual, but you’ll start seeing new articles show up soon, with continued growth over the coming months and years. We’re 100% confident that Bert and his staff at NYCeWheels will take EcoVelo to many new and exciting places!

On a personal note, we’re still riding bicycles for transportation as always. With the free time and creative energy regained when we mothballed EcoVelo, we’ve been doing lots of walking in the woods and playing with cameras. It’s a new frontier for us, but we’re enjoying the process of learning about landscape photography and the gallery world.

All the best,
Alan & Michael

Taking a Vacation (and Happy Thanksgiving)

Riv in Fall Colors

Starting today, we’re taking a week off from the blog. This will be the first significant break we’ve taken since starting EcoVelo 3.5 years ago (the longest break prior to this was 3 days). It’s been a busy, busy year and we’re looking forward to some quality time away from the computer to re-charge our batteries. If you haven’t done so before, now would be a great time to dig through the archives to catch up on some of the nearly 3,300 articles we’ve posted since May of 2008.

We hope you have a wonderful holiday and we’ll see you back here next Friday.

—Alan & Michael

Happy 4th!

4th of July

We’re going to take a much-needed break for a few days. All the best to you on this holiday weekend – see you next week!

Back in the Flow

Commuter

Due to the overwhelming response to our call for bicycle commuter profiles, we removed the entries from the main flow of the website to avoid overwhelming our regular daily content. As anticipated, after the initial rush the number of entries has slowed to a trickle, so it’s time to place the profiles back in the main blog timeline and enter each new profile as an individual post. Like with our photo contests, as you scroll back through archive pages from the main entry page you’ll encounter blocks of profiles that were posted en masse, but as those drift further down the timeline it will become less of an issue.

Going forward, the complete set of profiles can be accessed by either clicking on the “Bicycle Commuter Profiles” link at the top of every page, or clicking on the same in the left hand column under the “Categories” heading.

As always, if you haven’t submitted a Profile yet, please consider adding yours to the collection. Thanks!
