The self-supported Transcontinental cycle race from the Black Sea in Bulgaria to France’s Atlantic coast is the toughest test of its kind

As I rolled along quiet lanes in the mountains of Serbia, a ferocious barking delivered a jolt of adrenaline and canine feet approached my bike fast from the side. I longed for the crashing sound of dog-on-fence, followed by angry snarls at my disappearing back wheel.

Every town and village here seemed to have a pack of wild dogs, though, and there was no fence to stop them. It was worse at night when the streets were deserted, the dogs bolder and my fear deeper. One movement in the darkness and, as my light picked out bared white teeth ahead, the chase was on. My tactic was to sprint as fast as I could, hoping to avoid the bite that would divert me to hospital for a series of rabies jabs. I survived around 100 chases and didn’t hear of a single bite in the 265-strong field. We were lucky.

Anonymous investors have launched a hostile €25m bid for Sóller’s locally owned heritage train link to Palma

Indignant residents of the Mallorcan town of Sóller have said their railway is not for sale after a group of investors launched a hostile takeover bid.

The town has been linked to the capital, Palma, with a picturesque narrow-gauge railway since 1912. The train, with its wooden carriages, has been in continuous use ever since, climbing 200 metres and passing through 13 tunnels on its 27km journey.
Hands off our treasured railway, say locals in Sóller, Mallorca

Italian minister proposes plan for diverting a third of big ships to other ports by next year

Italy’s transport minister has proposed a plan for diverting massive cruise ships from Venice’s historic centre, with a view to rerouting a third of the vessels by next year.

Danilo Toninelli told a parliamentary hearing on Wednesday that the ships could gradually be shifted away from the Marittima terminal and instead dock at Fusina, a small port on mainland Venice, or Lombardia, a privately owned terminal. The minister suggested that the rerouting process could begin in September.
Venice cruise ships could be rerouted from city centre next month

- #WhatIf the #Speed of #Light and #Sound Were #Switched?



Nothing can #travel #faster than light. But what if we switched the #rules a #little? #Imagine a #world, where the speed of light was #slower. Way slower. About the speed that sound #travels at. In #turn, the sound in that #hypothetical world would be #accelerated until it reached the speed of light.
How would the sound and the light #look?

A zipline ride from the Paris landmark is providing an opportunity to speed across the Paris skyline at 90km (56 miles) per hour. The temporary zipline is an initiative by French mineral water brand Perrier to celebrate the French Open. It also coincides with the 130th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower. From May 29 to June 2, members of the public will be selected through an online draw on social media for a chance to take the 800-metre journey, which ends at the École Militaire

the only picture taken during my trip was during the crossing of the Pyrenees. The pass of "La Pierre Saint Martin".

I'm not a fan of constantly stopping to take pictures.
