To my mind, there's no better way to travel than on the saddle of a bicycle.

I'm not alone in that sentiment. Arthur Conan Doyle once wrote: "When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking."

I think Sir Arthur would also have delighted in the slideshow up on the Mother Jones website about the latest innovations in cycles and cycling gear. From electric bikes (that give you a bit more oomph for the hills) to cycles equipped with detachable umbrellas (for rainy day rides), there's much here to delight the cyclist. Take a peek.
