The Colombian women's cycling team have caused a controversy since it appears to make the cyclists nude from their thighs to their midriff. The uniform has a flesh-colored patch from under the ribcage to the top of their thighs. It is also skin tight so from afar or if you have a blurry eyesight they may look naked and it would seem that their privates are showing.

Gianluca Brambilla of Italy and Ivan Rovny of Russia got into a fight during the 16th stage of the race in Vuelta a España (Tour of Spain). What's crazy is that they didn't stop racing to exchange blows.
Rovni who wear yellow was seen shoving Brambilla who is in black, while Brambilla hit back. They continue with the back-and-forth for quite some time. Brambilla was first to get ejected, then Rovny got booted too.

They also plan to reduce vehicle speed limits on designated streets to increase safety for cyclists, and add more bicycle parking.
They are also planning to open the Tilikum Crossing (Bridge of the People) in 2015 that will cross the Willamette River. It will have two 14-foot-wide pedestrian and bike lanes.
Here are the of the Cities that are on the list:
Utrecht, Netherlands - It's the worlds most convenient city for cyclists, "up to 50% of all journeys take place in the saddle and local authorities are building a 12,500-space cycle parking facility billed as the world's biggest."
Seville, Spain - They have built a total of 80 miles of bicycle lanes and they have established a municipal bike rental plan named Sevici.
Montreal, Canada - They have built almost 400 miles of bike paths. They have a bike sharing plan called Bixi.
Copenhagen, Denmark - the city has a immense infrastructure for cycling. They have a segregated bike infrastructure that has bike lanes with a width of three (3) meters.
Berlin, Germany - Cycling in Berlin is becoming more popular with 13% of all trips in the city are now with the use of bikes, which is nearly twice the rate 20 years ago.
Tokyo, Japan - Tokyo is a very densely populated city and 14% of all travels are made using a bike since people here prefer travelling using a bike instead of a car for shorter journeys.
Bogota, Colombia - they close 70 miles of city streets during Sunday for Ciclovia. Maybe, the drug cartels love to travel by bike which is why CNN travel included Bogota.......just kidding.
