Manhattan to Montreal bike path. Thanks Cuomo !

Build 350 New Miles of Trail to Create Largest State Multi-use Trail Network in the Nation

750-Mile Trail Network Will Connect Lake Erie to the Capital Region and the New York Harbor to Canada

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today proposed completing the Hudson River Valley Greenway and Erie Canalway trails by 2020 to create the Empire State Trail, the largest state multi-use trail in the nation.

To achieve this, the state will develop 350 miles of new trail in three phases to create a 750-mile pathway for hiking and biking along scenic vistas and through charming, historic communities. The Empire State Trail will span much of the state, from the New York Harbor up through the Adirondack Mountains to the Canadian border - and from the shores of Lake Erie along the historic Erie Canal to the heart of the Capital Region.

The Baffler, Explanation for what, Vox ?

David Johnson explains Vox.

In its brief history, Vox has become a model in an industry that's moved from entrenchment to retrenchment. Vox's rapid growth, its dream team of policy bloggers, its cachet with the White House, its ability to attract blue-chip advertisers such as Chevrolet and Campbell's Soup, and its tech innovation have become the envy of competitors. Why? What is the secret of Vox.com and its thriving parent company Vox Media, which, according to a report this spring in Bloomberg Technology, is profitable and valued at $1 billion? Are there applicable lessons for the dwindling segments of the media industry that still care primarily about journalism? Or, is the Vox Media success story largely the product of clever--perhaps even deceptive--marketing?

Targeting an audience advertiser crave:

'who, exactly, are the promontories in this broad range? Let the enterprising Vox staff explain: "We want to find the grad student whose research will change everything, the Hill staffer who sees a better way, the entrepreneur who's figured out what's wrong with the system, the industry leader with a vision of what could be different." If these are the ingredients of a broad range of thought and a freewheeling exchange of opinions...'

Fatbike = vélo à pneus surdimensionnés (VPS).

Cet article a été écrit en 2015 et l'Office de la langue française n'avait pas alors choisi le nom qui serait attribué au Fat bike de façon officielle. Nous avons reçu une communication ce mois-ci nous annonçant que le terme à employer est désormais VPS pour vélo à pneus surdimensionnés.

Boxster: value

A first-generation Boxster, 986 chassis code, is neither particularly attractive nor terribly quick. In 1996 the car's 2.5-liter flat-six motor only pumped out about 201 horsepower. But you didn't buy this car for raw speed, you bought it because you wanted a more affordable and arguably better balanced Porsche sports car.

Just be prepared to pony up to keep it running today. YouTuber Road and Race added up the costs of his Boxster over two years, including parts and maintenance, and it comes out to $3,668.78.

And the Cayman 987 offers value.
