I don't think we have sufficient interest in it -- we haven't used it in nearly 2.5 years. And it doesn't really advertise anywhere on the site. I had to search Google to find the URL.

I've seen a few things myself that I thought were interesting but didn't fit the Q&A format (e.g. this interview ...

I watched the programme last night, and I'd be happy to write a blog on it. If anyone else would like to voice their opinion on the programme we could go for some kind of joint effort on it. Update - I've written the blog now.

Wrong-way bike lanes This answer, while possibly not proper for the question, raises some interesting points. Anyone want to tackle a blog post on bike lanes designed for wrong-way cycling?

Bike to Work week ...and bike to work day. This would have to be something inspirational, to amp new riders up to trying this out. According to the League of American Bicyclists, the week is May 14-18, and the day is Friday, 18 May. Perhaps something to come out on May 1?

I would like to write for the blog as well. I have previous experience writing for a cycling blog (shameless plug as most bloggers are used to by now), but since I moved I haven't been writing there because I am now not connected to the city and therefore can only talk about things from a national perspective. I would like to stretch my blogging muscles ...
