This Week's Blogosphere Soup

A quick review of this past week's happenings in the blog world

-- Here are some links for bike-lovers: Here are some pics of a cool ivy bike lock; in Denmark, there are public bicycle pumps and do-it-yourself repair kits; and as if you need another reason to ride your bike, this rider got cash and a thank-you note from a stranger who appreciates clean air.

Also, the Department of Transportation's blog posted stuff from this week's National Bike Summit.

-- Speaking of transportation, when you drive less, your neighborhood benefits:

When you drive less, much of the savings you'll see is due to the fact that you don't have to buy as much gasoline. Not only do you and your family save this money, you also likely spend some of it elsewhere. Maybe it's a movie or dinner out. Or some home improvements. Or a shopping trip at local stores. The bottom line is that, rather than sending your money to an oil company that likely isn't even in this country much less your community, your dollars stay in the neighborhood, helping to power the engine of your local economy.

-- Headline: "U.S. Military Links Alternative Energy Research to Lives -- and Dollars -- Saved"

-- Trying something new every 30 days: "In May of 2009, Matt decided to walk at least 10,000 steps a day for 30 days. He was happy with the results, so he followed that exercise by giving up television for 30 days."

-- This spy cam that zeros in on polar bears gets attacked by ... a polar bear! Prepare for adorable pictures and video!
