Is there a single city in this entire fucking country that isn't a cager hellscape? The only places in the entire country that aren't pure eye cancer are either single neighborhoods built before 1900 surrounded by 100km of shitty suburbs or giant cities where a 900sqft house is $2,000,000 plus tip.

I fucking hate this country. I'm almost considering buying 50 acres of land for $50,000 in bumfuck nowhere just so I can avoid looking at an entire horizon of copy-pasted mcmansions. I'd need a car but at least it would be the only car around.

Edmonton reporting in. Mostly a cager hellscape of course, but the central area is pretty sweet. I'm on 76Ave and 107St and I ride the bike everywhere especially in winter. "Mayor Bikelane" took my street parking away to build a big concrete bikelane so that sucks but I have to admit a real bikelane out my front door is nice too. My tiny 650 sqft shack (with big back yard, natch) cost $320,000 so it takes a bit to live here, but like with most things you get what you pay for.

I suspect you need a car to live in the suburbs of Amsterdam, that's a suburb thing not a specific city thing. If you want bikeable / walkable you want downtown.

Toronto here and oh boy where do I begin. Lots of plans, no action is the best way I can describe the state of this City and trying to get around it. Its been shit since the 80's since Bill Davis was the last Premier that gave a fuck. The Subway is fine albeit overcrowded and the buses are buses so you know what to expect. At least we still have our Streetcar system and seem to want to make it better. As with most cities the suburbs are impossible to get around without a car and Downtown is the only place that is walkable.

I'd say Saskatoon is easily a better city than Regina, far enough north that its getting out of the bland prairie landscape. But its spread out more and has the river as an annoying obstacle, thus making it more car centric.

Moose Jaw is a sleepy little town. But I swear every driver there is in their 70s the way they slowly move around. Town is split in half by a rail yard with few ways across it.

I'm not a breaker expert, but part of their ability is due to the shape of the hull. They're built with a spoon bow, which allows them to ride up onto the ice whereupon the weight of the hull will break it. I suppose the "ice horn" is a structure like a protrusion on the keel line that stops the ship from riding up on too-thick ice and getting stranded.

People always fap over the metric system's ability to easily convert into smaller and more manageable numbers, but then they always do shit like measuring the height of a human in hundreds of centimeters. Why the fuck is that? Even with the imperial system's more arbitrary and difficult conversions we always convert and reduce anywhere we can, nobody talks about human height purely in inches because it's far harder to conceptualize large amounts of small units than it is to conceptualize fewer amounts of large units. So why the fuck would users of a system literally sold on its ability to easily convert units NEVER FUCKING CONVERT UNITS?!
>>
>>1427856
Because 163 is a bigger number than 1.63. It's the same reason why you see bottles of shit sold as 500ml instead of .5l or 50cl or 5dl. Does anyone even use deci or deca? Anyway, basic human psychology is going to treat the larger number as indicating more of whatever it is, even tho it's the same measurement.

I like the imperial system, wherein when someone's height starts with a "5" you can disregard them entirely.

Look, literally the only place you got those places is the US, where cyclists are even more special.

Where the heck do people buy cycling gear? I’ve gone to 5 different cycling shops in my area and they are all just full of bikes with no accessories.

I want to try to start riding in the winter again (used to for school) but I actually have money now and can get some actual bike pants; in sick of putting holes in my jeans. But the measly selection in stores is always entirely stitched in buttpadding which I don’t want. I have never worn any fancy bike gear other than my jersey.

I can’t figure out what gear I need to stay warm but not overheat without trying it on first so I don’t know where to look. My rides will be anywhere from like 30 to 50, wet lots of the time, and it’s rather short 2 miles to work.

Can anyone help me figure out what gear I should get? I havnt biked since early August.

For casual once in a while cycling XC ski gear works fine. If you're cycling a lot in cold bike specific gear is worth it. The jackets have higher front so it doesn't bunch up as you're on a bike and actually usable pockets for cycling. The pants have ass reinforcements so that your saddle doesn't destroy them.

>he doesn't have wool midlayers for skiing
>he doesn't have good leather mittens
Wool is amazing for any kind of outdoor activity in winter and there is nothing warmer that a good pair of leather mittens.

In a study contained in the latest UCLA Anderson Forecast, released Wednesday, UCLA found that higher median rent and home prices are strongly correlated with more people living on the streets or in shelters. The research backs other studies that have found a similar relationship.

Last year, Zillow released a study that showed that a 5% rent hike in L.A. County — where more than 50,000 are estimated to be homeless — would cause 2,000 additional people to lose their homes.

Yu found that the higher the housing costs, the higher the homeless rate. The report also found that states with higher incomes, denser neighborhoods and lots of home building tend to have lower rates of homelessness.

I like hydrofoil but after looking around it seems rather complex to get right. I'm thinking of just attaching two flotation banana-like devices on each side and a propeller on the back, actuated by the rear tire through friction, bottle dynamo style. No idea how you would steer though.

conventional recumbents are a joke mainly because they are too low to the ground relative to other vehicles in traffic
an upright recumbent would be faster than a safety bike but not as impractical as a recumbent

In dense cities like NYC and Chicago the local and suburban commuter trains are packed. People use the fuck out of them, in addition to people using the fuck out of their cars.

For long distance trips (Amtrak), the trains are generally slow, dirty, half empty and expensive compared to europe or japan. Yes there are exceptions like the Acela line in the NE, but that is essentially a commuter line.
