Primoz Roglic continues to keep the yellow shirt after 13 races of Tour de France 2020. Even the gap between him and defending champion Egan Bernal widens. Meanwhile, Dani Martinez won the Tour de France for the first time in his career when the team conquered the top of Puy Mary.

Thanks to the quick split with his best friend, Slovenian Tadej Pogacar, Roglic was 38 seconds faster than Bernal after a 191.5 km route from Chatel-Guyon.

Roglic with compatriot Pogacar made an excellent breakthrough

Increasing the gap helps Jumbo-Visma’s Roglic keep his yellow shirt lighter due to 44 seconds more than Pogacar, who took 81 seconds due to the wind in the 7th leg. Defending champion Bernal was pushed to third place for 59 seconds behind and gave Pogacar the best young racers shirt.

The most famous bicycle races in the world nowadays (Part 1)

Tour de France is the most famous cycling tournament in the world. We’ve also heard of the fact that Lance Armstrong won 7 consecutive awards.

In addition to the Tour de France there are many other famous races taking place in the world, let’s take a look at the most famous bicycle races today.

Tour de France

Tour de France is also known as the Round-trip bicycle race in France. The Tour de France first held in 1903 was the first real multi-track race in the history of cycling. This is the most famous bicycle race in the world, usually held annually for 3 weeks in July.

Tour de France has a track that is considered very tough and challenging for riders. When the corners have to cycle through France and neighboring countries. American athlete Lance Armstrong was the first person to win the race seven times in a row between 1999 and 2005.

Giro d’Italia

Giro d’Italia is the Round Italy race, one of the most famous and important cycling races after the Tour de France. Since 1909, the Giro d’Italia award has been held annually, during the 3 weeks of May with the race track leading through Italy and several neighboring countries.

The race always includes sprinters favored flat tracks, “medium-hard” stages suitable for teams that like to go ahead, and high mountain races where the race is decided. The record for the Giro d’Italia award is currently held by two Italian races, Alfredo Binda and Fausto Coppi, when each of them each won 5 victories at this race.

Vuelta a España

Vuelta a España is the third-largest cycling race of the year after the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia. This race is held every year in Spain and sometimes extends to routes in other countries such as France, Portugal, the Netherlands, or Belgium.

The race was held for the first time in 1935, the driver with the most victories in this tournament was Roberto Heras, the Spaniard who won four times.

Grande Boucle Féminine Internationale

Grande Boucle means “big loop” and describes individual stages that form a circuit around France. Women’s riders will pass shorter races than men’s, but with the public and the media less attention, it was completely overshadowed by the Tour de France.

How do developed countries encourage people to use bicycles? (Part 2)

It was not until the late 1980s and early 1990s that cycling and pedestrian priority policies were implemented. Among the factors that contributed to this change was the oil crisis of the 1970s, the social movements of the 1960s and 1970s to oppose the planning of streets to build highways.

Among the new highways for cycling, there is a route between Amsterdam and Amstelveen (a suburb of the capital). Another route connects the town of Groningen with Assen – a city in the province of Drenthe which is known as the “cycling province” of the Netherlands.

The UK

In the UK, former Prime Minister David Cameron once said that the country would invest about £ 94 million in upgrading infrastructure and improving traffic safety to attract more people to ride bicycles.

One of the popular methods used by many places is to provide free bikes. As in the Australian city of Adelaide, free bicycles are available in many places for residents and tourists to use.

The city of Birmingham, UK, offers bicycles to low-income people if they agree to use them. Residents of Gothenburg City, Sweden, if they commit to using less personal cars, will be granted free bicycles by the city government.

But increasing the number of vehicles and bicycle users is not enough, it is necessary to have transport infrastructure as well as policies to encourage and use bicycles. Like New York City, USA, thanks to the investment policies for infrastructure in the past few years, bicycle lovers can cycle continuously for 25 miles without any hindrance.

The city of Bristol also applies the same rules on some major routes. The speed restriction will make traffic on the roads safer, convenient for cycling, and walking.

Paris, France

Another rule that is also supported by people, is the day of banning cars, also known as car-free days. Previously, every year in the capital, Paris, France, people would have a day where the 5-mile stretch from Arc de Triomphe to Nation Square would completely ban cars so people could walk or cycle.

Many questions have been raised about whether one year of only one day of car ban, how can one encourage people to cycle. In fact, the experience of the day of banning cars has fascinated Parisians and demanded more days of banning cars. And now Paris has a car ban day once a month.

How do developed countries encourage people to use bicycles? (Part 1)

Due to the increasing traffic pressure in urban areas, bicycles are considered as one of the effective solutions to solve the problem of congestion and air pollution.

Netherlands

The number of bicycles in the Netherlands is more than the population. The number of bicycles in the Netherlands is 23 million, out of a total of 17 million people.

The number of bicycles in cities always accounts for over 70% of vehicles. This achievement is thanks to reasonable policies, tireless efforts, and above all the love for bicycles as well as the consciousness and spirit of the Dutch people.

With 17 million people and 23 million bicycles, the Netherlands is a rare country with more bicycles than people. The government hopes to increase the number of bicycle highways as well as encourage more people to use bicycles to work.

According to the Dutch Ministry of Water and Infrastructure Management, 15 routes will be developed into “bicycle highways” (bicycle-only roads), 25,000 bicycle parking lots will be erected, and more than 60 facilities. Bicycle storage will be upgraded to accomplish this goal.

Many Dutch people already love using bicycles for daily activities. According to the Dutch Institute of Policy Analysis, in 2016, more than a quarter of all Dutch trips were made by bicycle.

The Dutch government encourages to use bicycles to go to work, school and other daily activities

Of these, 25% of trips are by bicycle for business purposes, while 37% are for relaxation. The remaining trips are for going to school, shopping, and other activities.

According to Stientje van Veldhoven, more than 50% of the Dutch population lives less than 15km from the workplace, and more than half of the car journey to and from the workplace is made under 7.5km.

In order to encourage people to reduce car use, the Dutch government also spent money on this ideal plan. Accordingly, the Netherlands currently has a policy of rewarding bicyclists with a tax credit of US $ 0.22/km.

The company and its employees will confirm the distance an employee has cycled to work. However, this benefit is currently less known, and not many companies support it.

The Dutch government hopes to change this situation by promoting the program more effectively and promoting more partnerships. There are a number of major companies in the Netherlands committed to taking measures, such as funding bicycles for employees.

The demand for bicycles significantly increases (Part 2)

In Europe, Giant will be more active in the future because it has built a large factory in Hungary. This is part of the Taiwanese manufacturer’s gradual transformation program to bring production out of China and gain closer access to consumer markets.

The renaissance of Taiwanese bicycles

Gina Chang, general secretary of the Taiwan Bicycle Association, said at first manufacturers were also reeling in the first quarter due to orders canceled or postponed when the corona virus was first released but then, demand turned on.

The Covid-19 pandemic can be considered the latest chapter in the renaissance of Taiwan’s bicycle industry. In the past, the island maintained its position as the world’s No. 1 bicycle manufacturer until the 1990s, when China’s economic reforms enabled many businesses to capitalize on the labor force.

Although Chinese factories continue to play a dominant role in terms of quantity, Taiwan’s bicycle production is rebounding, especially with higher quality bikes and in the bicycle market segment. Electricity is growing rapidly.

Last year, Taiwan exported non-electric bikes worth US $ 1.36 billion, lower than the US $ 1.5 billion the previous year, but 2019 recorded an increase in electric bicycle exports to 863 million USD, much higher than 377 million USD in 2018 and most to Europe.

Export of electric bicycles from January to April this year reached a record level of 301 million USD, up 23.6% over the same period last year. And Taiwanese bicycles are often higher quality models at a higher price.

The pandemic will help encourage people to choose bicycles as a form of long-term travel after the threat of corona virus has diminished because this is exactly what many governments, especially Europe, looking forward to a fresh atmosphere.

Cycling in the UK in the midst of COVID-19 pandemic (Part 2)

Except for the convenience of avoiding Covid-19, British residents also find cycling to work as well as exercise, health promotion during isolation.

As a result, they became increasingly fond of bicycles. Many optimists believe that even at the end of the pandemic, UK road traffic will not return to the situation of cars, many congestion as before.

Expand the trend to other European countries

After the UK, many other European countries also encourage residents to switch to cycling. In Germany, people extend the bike lane, marked by lines and signs. In France, Paris has deployed an additional 650 km of “corona bicycles”. Particularly Milan (Italy) also established some routes only for permanent bicycles.

In addition to bicycles, in the UK, there is another means of transport suddenly taking the throne is the tram. In the past, they were often banned from running on public roads and sidewalks because of the danger. During the quarantine period, electric vehicle sales in the UK doubled compared to last year.

In the first week of May 2020, Pure Electric, Somerset electric retailer, consumed 135 units / day. Meanwhile, last year, the total sales were 11,500 units (an average of 31 units / day).

Although bicycles and trams are convenient during the quarantine period, campaigners who switch to bicycles are still worried about traffic safety. In 2019, television host Emily Hartridge (35) was killed in an accident while riding a streetcar in south London.

The current concern in the UK is road safety for bicyclists. The government has to deal with bad roads, potholes, and bicyclists are self-protective with protective accessories such as helmets, knee belts, elbows, etc.

As can be seen, cycling is still one of the most popular choices of people in the UK in the midst of Covid-19 pandemic. This means of transportation promised to be a good solution while the public transportation is not in use due to the pandemic.

Cycling in the UK in the midst of COVID-19 pandemic (Part 1)

In the midst of the crisis, there was a commodity that suddenly surged in sales in the UK, making experts struggle to understand why. It is bicycle sales. As for why, you will know in the following article.

According to a survey result from a recent UK poll, 61% of the population is insecure about having to use public transport. They are extremely worried about the possibility of being infected with the corona virus on the way to work.

At London subway stations, passengers are required to be at least 2m apart. This distance is intended to be safe from Covid-19, but it also causes a major inconvenience. That is the delay.

London is the city with the most jobs in England. The spacing reduces the capacity on the subway by 15%, and buses by 12% compared to normal. Trips are delayed up to 8 million / day, the transportation system is only 1/5 of capacity. This also means that many workers are unable to catch trains or buses to work on time.

To cope with the above situations, British residents have flexibly switched to cycling. “People are competing to get their old bikes out of a warehouse, repair and replace broken parts,” said Stuart Taylor, manager of a retail bike shop in London. In early May 202020, the company supplies bicycle parts, motorcycles, cars Halfords happy to announce: their stock price soared 23%.

Many bicycle retail stores in the UK consume 50 bicycles a day

In the heart of the old Bicester market, Oxfordshire, bike distribution companies usually send to each retailer 20 – 30 pieces / week. Now, many stores are reaching sales of 50 units a day and there is still no sign of satisfying the thirst for bicycles. Orders were piled up, up 200% from the previous year.

Across the major UK cities such as London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Bristol, Leicester, Sheffield, Newcastle and Cambridge, the road system frees up and adds space for bicycles. Currently, the UK has more than 160 kilometers of road converted to temporary service for cyclists. They are located right on the main roads, taking up part or part of a car lane.
