Time that South Africa views cycling as a real environmentally friendly empowerment opportunity!
It's every cyclist's dream. Germany has opened the first three-mile stretch of a bicycle highway that will eventually span over 62 miles, connecting 10 western cities as well as four universities.

Sitting in front of a screen all day can wreak havoc on the spine. Our posture changes, and that can cause some serious long-term damage. Dr. Eric Goodman, creator of the Foundation Training program, offers these three no-equipment exercises to help.

"The blatant abuse of race as primary mobilisation tool to canvass votes is reckless and contrary to the spirit of our constitution."

It will be interesting to see if the pattern of history - ie yesterday's revolutionary is today's tyrant - will win the day, or whether the spirit of South Africa's 'ground-breaking' constitution will win the day:  particularly considering the current politico-legal empasse whereby the Consitutional Court has clearly stated that the President and the ANC majority parliament has not upheld the principles of the Constitution...
What we’re experiencing in the election campaigns of the EFF and the ANC at the moment amounts to naked Wit Gevaar games - to make race the main theme of one’s cheap populism, is irresponsible, opportunist and dangerous, writes Max du Preez.

"Driving at or near the speed limit is not a right. You will not find anywhere in the Constitution of the United States nor in the Bill of Rights, any mention that speed or unfettered speed is your right."

A great read on driver responsibility....
My heartfelt condolences to all my cycling friends in Lexington Kentucky and to the family of Dr. David Cassidy.

A case of "History is written by the victors" and "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it."

Interesting times on post-colonial, post-apartheid South Africa!
There is only one word for the present ANC policy to cynically abuse race and racism as an election strategy: reckless, says Max du Preez.
