[!(http://neatorama.cachefly.net/images/2006-06/tree-branch-bike.jpg)](http://www.neatorama.com/2006/06/21/tree-branch-bike/) This bike looks like it just washed ashore and somebody threw on some wheels.

Spokane gets some love from Amsterdamize thanks to a 10 minute video created by a Spokane bicycle commuter named Wilma. Not exactly my commute, but fairly close since it starts on the South Hill and the Centennial Trail features prominently.

Community bicycling program in Davis, CA somewhat similar to Spokane’s [Pedals 2 People](http://pedals2people.org).
I’ve seen YouTube videos of Japanese track races before, but didn’t really understand the context until I watched this video interview with veteran (25 years as a pro!) Keirin cyclist Toshihiko Tomita. Turns out Keirin cycling is one of Japan’s most popular gambling sports and has been an Olympic event since 2000.
More in depth information on Keirin cycling from Wikipedia.

[Marco Facciola wooden bike with chain – gadgettastic.com](http://www.gadgettastic.com/2008/01/24/fully-functional-wooden-bike-with-chain/)
[!(http://www.gadgettastic.com/wp-content/2008/01/woodbike.jpg)](http://www.gadgettastic.com/2008/01/24/fully-functional-wooden-bike-with-chain/) Cool complete bike proof of concept by a 16 year old kid. I’m guessing with solid wheels like those it probably rides like a tank.
