Bike-Friendly Cities, a New Urbanism, and More Car News This Week

The world is full of problems. So sometimes, it’s nice to give an enthusiastic thumbs-up to people who have solved some. This week, WIRED partnered with the Danish urban planning and design firm Copenhagenize Design to publish a list of the world’s top 20 cities for cyclists. These places are working towards public health, climate, and traffic goals by making it easier to get around on two wheels instead of four.

Also attempting to solve problems this week: Google parent Alphabet’s Sidewalk Labs unit, which believes the fix for all manner of urban ills comes down to data—and hopes to test out its ideas in Toronto. Oh, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who really wants you to buy an electric car. It’s been a week. Let’s get you caught up.

River Patrol and Dive Team Rescue of the Week

Congrats to the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office dive team, which this week pulled 57 scooters and bicycles from the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon. The lights on at least one Lime scooter were still working. Tossing scooters into rivers, oceans, and seas has become a meme of the scooter-share era, with some environmental advocates complaining about the discarded vehicles’ effects on waterways.

Stat of the Week

Dozens!

The number of hardware and software engineers who moved from the small autonomous vehicle developer Drive.ai to Apple this week, according to Axios. About 90 other workers were laid off in the transaction. The acquisition seems to confirm that Apple is still working on self-driving vehicles—and that it’s hard out there for a full-stack self-driving vehicle startup, now that the perfected technology feels further away.
