Jonathan Winston of San Francisco is at the Toward Car Free Cities conference in Portland, Oregon. His latest podcast on Bikescape is on the depaving of parking lot that took place to open the conference. The 3000 square foot parking lot will be converted to a community garden, some bike parking space, and a water catchment system.

When I look at proposals like the King Street Bike Way that involve adding more pavement for the benefit of cyclists, I kind of wonder if perpetually increasing gasoline prices won't automatically resolve the problem of too much traffic. What do you think?

In theory, when enough people switch from motoring to cycling, existing roads will mostly be too wide, not too narrow.
