rouleur.cc — We've all got a story like this. I'm out with our usual Tuesday training group doing laps of the park. It's just after 6am, and only just light, but it's springtime in New York City and the park loop is amply filled with local club and recreational riders all doing their morning thing.

Should Lance Armstrong be banned from Strava?

theguardian.com — Lance Armstrong is never out of the news for long, lately. Now, in the wake of his semi-confession to Oprah Winfrey, ABC News is reporting that a high-level official says that Armstrong is still under investigation by federal agents for possible obstruction, witness tampering and intimidation.

Top six cycling team jerseys NOT to wear

theguardian.com — I was out early riding around the park this morning, and of course, it's summer still, so you see other cyclists training. Most are wearing either their own cycling or triathlon club jerseys, or plain, no-name "unattached" jerseys. But you'll always see some folk in team replica kit.

Reflections of a British emigre on American Independence Day

theguardian.com — For US citizens, 4 July - Independence Day - is unambiguously an anniversary to cheer and celebrate. As the founder John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail, the day that Congress approved the Declaration of Independence "ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."

How safe are the world's cities for cyclists?

theguardian.com — When I arrived in Malmö two years ago, it was the free bicycle pumps, installed in convenient places on cycle paths, which showed me that, when it comes to cycling in Sweden, Malmö leads the way. Sweden's third-largest city is laced with 500km (310 miles) of cycle lanes, more even than in Copenhagen, a short hop across the Öresunds Bridge.

The trouble with cupcakes

theguardian.com — I've tried ignoring them or just being slightly bemused by their ubiquitousness, but I've finally realised that I'm sick of cupcakes. They're everywhere, with their candy colours, inch-thick icing and red-velvet sponge. Any time a colleague has a birthday or leaves for a new job, we have cupcakes in the office.

Jesse Jackson: 'Black Americans are free, but not equal' - video interview

guardian.co.uk — The acquittal last week of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin has reignited the debate about race and racism in America.

Is Rolling Stone's Dzhokhar Tsarnaev 'rock star' cover an outrage?

guardian.co.uk — Matt Seaton: the furor is 'radically misplaced'. The cover highlights tough, investigative journalism The outrage over Rolling Stone's cover photo of the Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev seems to me radically misplaced. The crimes of which Tsarnaev is accused were barbaric and deserve deep condemnation, but for people to be scandalized by Rolling Stone's cover image is projection of anger and hurt onto the wrong object.

Lance Armstrong's former wife may have to testify against him

guardian.co.uk — The 33-page court document filed by the US Department of Justice, which has joined the "whistleblower suit" of Floyd Landis against Lance Armstrong and associates, raises for the first time the possibility that Armstrong's former wife, Kristin, may be called as a witness in the trial.
