Issue 013 of my newsletter In Abeyance is now live. This one was a lot of fun to research and write about, although I barely scratched the surface. Also it’s linked to my theme for Inktober.

@kaa oh, there it is.

It’s interesting to look at micromobility from the “other side”… living in a city that’s already cycling-dominant. Where do we put these new vehicles? Of course their users want to use bike paths, but they don’t weave into traffic well.

@gerwitz thats the exact same take that another reader made. He's also a cyclist and doesnt like electric scooters. I think its going to be a transition period that will eventually lead to some form of regulation...

@kaa not in response, but you might enjoy this trivia: the Dutch don’t consider themselves “cyclists” even if they ride a bike to work. The sport and the utility are completely distinct.

I hate being “that guy” when I ride my racing bike on the fietspad, but it’s hard to avoid.
