I'll be encouraging bicycles as transportation at lunch today during an Earth Day event at my job. Interest was fairly high last year; it should be interesting to see what happens this year.
Zero Per Gallon: I saw gas priced at $4.05 for regular in Palo Alto and Menlo Park this morning. While I was stopped at a light this morning a pair of wild women in the Jeep Cherokee next to me started shouting at me. "I LOVE your sticker! Zero dollar gas! WAY TO GO! Woooooo!" I think they might also have been attracted to my Chrome cycling knickers. They come with some wicking padding in the seat so I tried wearing them commando today. It doesn't work; I need more support than they provide.
Danes ride their bicycles at The Happiest Place on Earth.
...well now, the denmark thing is a huge dichotomy...a country to be greatly admired for it's bicycle consciousness but apparently lacking in certain social concerns... ...what a shame as the tag "the most racist country in europe" doesn't quite match up well w/ "the happiest place on earth"...
