For this week’s edition of our video round-up, we’ve got a safety message from New Zealand, an analysis of whether aero road bikes really are faster, the usual offering of WorldTour race footage, and much more besides.
Some are longer than others, but they’re all worth a watch, so sit back and enjoy videos of the week.
Oi! Mind on the road, not the phone
This video from Auckland in New Zealand aims to tackle a problem seen in any country in the world: mobile phone use at the wheel of a car. Using the humour of people shouting ‘oi’ at one another, the video sticks with you and delivers its message well.
Are aero bikes faster?
In this exclusive Cycling Weekly video, Dr Hutch tests whether or not there is a benefit to riding an aero machine, and if there is a benefit, how large an advantage it is?
For British fans, seeing Chris Froome win the 2015 Critérium du Dauphiné bodes very well for next month’s Tour de France. Here we present highlights from the race that saw the yellow jersey change hands several times, and finish on a very tight margin in the GC.
Dutch Garden Bridge
The proposed Garden Bridge in London has caused controversy, in part due to it being seen as a “private garden platform pretending to be a bridge”. In this video, the Dutch show us how it’s done when it comes to urban planning.
Changes to Vauxhall Bridge
In welcome contradiction to the above analysis of Britain’s transport policies, small glimmers of hope are appearing in the nation’s capital when it comes to cycle infrastructure. This video shows the changes in progress on Vauxhall Bridge, which are part of a wider project to make cycling safer in London.
Mark Cavendish talks Tour de France
With the start of the Tour de France now just two and a half weeks away, Mark Cavendish details his main ambition for the Grand Boucle: a second Green Jersey. He also goes on to detail the strength in depth of his Etixx-Quick Step team, especially over the varied parcours of the race’s first week.
We’re finishing this videos of the week round-up with something a bit different. In this footage, Danny, the deputy editor of our sister magazine MBR, takes on the pros in the Enduro World Series, and has a lot of fun doing it.
