This is the Summer of Cycling! We asked 7 writers to tell us their favorite routes in 7 great biking cities. You can plan your ride here, or tell us your favorite ride in your city.

Wow. Today's @nytime 's story on the billions in ransom and 'reparations' that Haiti paid for generations to its former enslavers is a stunning piece of journalism and historical research:

On the EU's latest sanctions list: 3 broadcasters, 1 bank, and oil. Not on the list: diamonds and the $1.8 billion in annual sales they earn the state-owned company that mines them.

Did you know that 30% of the world's diamonds come from Russia, and that over 90% of those are mined by a company that sponsors submarines for the Russian military? Neither did I, until I reported this story for @TIME :

"It doesn't matter how strong you are. Your mind is not used to seeing violence like that." After interviewing him right as he signed up to fight in Ukraine, I catch up with Povilas Limontas again.

The first week of the war, I met Povilas Limontas outside the Ukrainian embassy in Vilnius, where he was waiting to register as a volunteer fighter. Recently, I caught up with him again. (For @TIME )
