Right Rides for Women’s Safety looks like an interesting program. In their Safe Walk bike patrol program, volunteer cyclists escort callers to their destinations safely. Via.

I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend! Be nice to one another and all that other stuff you learned in kindergarten. That goes for you, Pat and Dick and Hein and Patrice. I’m also talking to you too, George and Dick.
