Bicycle Tree

The “tree that ate a bicycle” on Washington’s Vashon Island has been a popular destination for curiosity seekers for years, particularly for those who have read Berkeley Breathed’s 1994 book, Red Ranger Came Calling, which was inspired by this arboreal oddity.

Many photographs of the bicycle tree can be found on the Internet on sites such as RoadsideAmerica, and a trek to the site is captured in the following video:

Pictures of the bicycle are commonly associated with text claiming it was left chained to a tree by a boy who went off to war in 1914

A boy left his bike chained to a tree when he went away to war in 1914. He never returned, leaving the tree no choice but to grow around the bike. Incredible that this bike has been there for 98 years now!


However, the bicycle is not nearly that old, nor was

The Beginner’s Guide to Picking the Perfect Bicycle

Illustration for article titled The Beginners Guide to Picking the Perfect Bicycle

Illustration: Sam Woolley

I had always been a bike purist. Up until recently, I’ve been riding the same bike I got for my 10th birthday. Sure, it still got me where I needed to go, but it was definitely time for an upgrade. As a total beginner, I discovered picking the right bike isn’t as simple as I thought. From frame size to extra features, here’s how to find your perfect ride.

Choose the right bike type based on your needs

When I walked into my local bike shop and they asked what I was looking for, I had no idea what to say beyond, “a really cool bike.” I didn’t know where to start, so I told them I just wanted something for riding around the neighborhood. Even then, I discovered there were options.

Driving and Transportation | Epilepsy Foundation

A driver’s license is a passport to adulthood in the United States and many other countries. In both rural and suburban areas, driving a motor vehicle is often essential for independence and employment. Even in many urban areas, driving is needed for some jobs or to get to certain places for work or pleasure.

  • Driving is a privilege, and applicants must meet the criteria in their state to qualify for a driver’s license.
  • Applicants in all states must be older than a minimum age (usually 16 or 17 years), must not have a medical disorder that would make driving dangerous, and must pass a written test, a vision test, and a driving test.

Licensing of People with Epilepsy

The laws determining which medical conditions may prevent someone from driving varies from state to state. Some states have become more liberal in recent years, basing laws on actual data about risks.

A passion for transportation drives traffic intern to help out in Stamford

STAMFORD — Luke Buttenwieser is serious about traffic.

As a New York University student majoring in sustainable urban environments with a minor in transportation engineering, Buttenwieser, 19, was home recently for spring break and working as an intern in the city’s Transportation, Traffic and Parking Department trying to make his city an easier, safer and quicker place to get around.

The first word that came out of Buttenwieser’s mouth as a toddler wasn’t “momma” or “papa” his parents tell him. “My first word was bus,” he said during a recent telephone interview.

His favorite thing to do as a little kid was hop on the train in New Canaan, where he grew up until moving to Stamford in eighth grade, and ride the rails. Maybe his father being a pilot had something to do with it, but Buttenwieser says transportation has always been his favorite thing.

“This is exactly what
