Actually a hot issue popped up at work and there's a good chance I'll be working over the weekend, but I'll try to get some riding in over the weekend. In the meantime, here's a quick collection of news and tidbits for you.
Attention SF Bay Area Road Riders: Organo crunchy vegans Bill & Christine have opened up The Bike Hut for your free use at their home on Tunitas Creek Road just a mile up from Highway 1 south of Half Moon Bay at their Potrero Nuevo Farm, 1045 Tunitas Creek Road. For now, The Bike Hut is just a shack with a picnic table and free water for cyclists to use, but they hope to have organic/vegan energy snacks and drinks avaiable for sale in the future. Props to Holier Than You. Mentioned also at Spare Cycles and SVBC.
Cars the new cigarettes. Motorized vehicles too should come with a warning label. Every year drivers should sign a statement:
"As the licensed owner of this vehicle, I'm fully aware that driving such causes air pollution, noise, traffic and increases the likelihood of injuries to others, possibly death and property destruction. In addition, many of the dollars spent to propel this vehicle will be used by terrorist organizations with stated desires to inflict harm and possibly death to my fellow citizens and family members."
After this maybe we can have a sincere vote for Complete Streets on the federal level. Jack
