The Make a Cuppa, Dim the Lights, and Steal the Telly Video Blog Roundup

For this week's Blog Roundup we're sitting back and watching videos. There are lots of people out there producing video that accompanies or even holds it own alongside the blogs we regularly cover. So we thought it would be a good idea to pick out a selection of videos so that as the nights draw in we can all sit with a mug of tea in hand and watch people cycling both in comfort and in conflict the world over.

It's time to talk about shopping

This is a 'one off special' for the Embassy's weeekly blog roundup. Today we're trying to gather all the useful things you need to know when someone tells you that cycleways are going to kill your businesses, your shops, or, well, you. 

This week has loads of PDF links because we're in the world of some pretty serious academic papers and reports - while pretty tough stuff to read, they provide a wealth of actionable, reliable data. 

The Great Big Hooray for London (and Luxembourg) Bike Blog Roundup

Where London leads ...

With London's emerging segregated cycle network beginning to open for business, to mostly rave reviews, Cyclists in the City wonders whether it isn't time to give Boris some love over what he's done for cycling if nothing else, following Green

The Great Big Don't Blame the Victim Bike Blog Roundup

Yesterday was the World Day of Remembrance for Traffic Victims (not that we should forget the role of bikes in the First World War either) marked across the US, including in New York where the city's mayor was to stand alongside families affected

The Great Big Don't Feed the Trolls Bike Blog Roundup

Every week these days, it seems, there will be a nasty piece of clickbait (don't worry, it's not a link to the actual clickbait in question) and every week a few bloggers won't be able to help themselves and rise to it - if only because the attitudes these articles stir up cause genuine h

The Great Big Scary Enough for Halloween Bike Blog Roundup

As the (English speaking) world recovers from the terrifying prospect of Halloween's annual influx of actual children onto our actual streets, Streetsblog points out that children need undistracted drivers not hi vis to be safe on Halloween - and just because you're composing that email hands free doesn't mean you're not distracted, by the way

The Embassy's 'Greatest Hits' Blog Roundup

For this week's Blog Roundup we're digging back into the archives, to look at some of the best bits of blogging about cycling you might have missed, or that are worth reading again. Call it our Greatest Hits, if you like!

The best writing is really about changing minds, attitudes and perceptions, and that's something that all these blogs have in common. Taken together, the writing on these (and indeed other) blogs amounts to a tremendous resource, produced for the most part by amateurs - people writing, explaining and investigating in their own time.

The Great Big White, Male and Middle Class Bike Blog Roundup

The big news this week, apparently, was a four year old report into attitudes to cycling in London that isn't at all being used as a stick to beat plans for investment in cycling by claiming it's just for the middle classes (but at least stops short of claiming it's an infringement of religious freedoms - maybe next week).

The Great Big Who's the Cyclingest City of them All? Blog Roundup

The release this week of figures from Strava that appear to show London is the most active city for cycling (at least among people who use Strava) left some wondering if that is really the best measure of a cycling city.

The Great Big Battle of the Mini Hollands Bike Blog Roundup

With the deadline approaching for comments on the first tranche of Enfield's Mini Holland scheme, and the plans for Enfield town centre released for consultation, what may be come to be known as the Battle of Green Lanes is hotting up
