Views: The McKenzie Pass Scenic Bikeway, Oregon

In this episode of the Peak Northwest video series, host Jim Ryan cycles the spectacular McKenzie Pass Scenic Bikeway in central Oregon. The ride is framed by the Cascades and beautiful forests, and it’s punctuated by a historic, if not eerie, observatory — constructed from the same lava rock that surrounds it for miles. To some, the area is an unsettling moonscape. To others, it’s begging to be explored on two wheels.

City Design: ‘Coolsingel’ In Rotterdam, Netherlands

Views: ‘Cycling In The English Countryside’

I live in a faded seaside town called St. Leonards-on-Sea, in Sussex, on the south coast of England. If you’ve not heard of it, you’re in good company.

Best New Electric Bikes: “Ducati Urban-e Foldable E-Bike” – Top Italian Design

Urban-E, available in black or gray version, is built around the special aluminum frame, designed by the designers of the Ducati Style Center in collaboration with colleagues from the Industrial Design division of Italdesign, with an easy folding system that allows you to fold the e-bike in a few simple steps. 

The foldable frame is made of lightweight aluminum and the battery is fully integrated into the frame. It was born from a totally custom development project with Ducati Style Center and Italdesign as protagonists. The LED lights and the display are integrated into the frame becoming a real design element, one of a kind.

The handlebar has a fully integrated LCD display in the stem that allows you to check all the assistance functions, check the remaining battery charge and turn the LED lights on and off. Designers and planners have worked to create an e-bike with a clean and linear style. The 378 Wh battery is integrated into the frame and itself becomes an element of style, recalling the motorcycle tanks in the typical Ducati red color and arched shape.
