Rumor is OK Senator Coburn has withdrawn his demand to eliminate bike funding from Federal transportation enhancement programs after his office was FLOODED with 50,000 calls, letters and faxes from bike adviocates like you.
Hey who you callng a bike advocate 🙂 I ride for fun
I saw via Transform (Bay Area Bike/Ped/Transit advocacy group) update that the deal struck was to renew the gas tax as is for six months, then it’s up for discussion.
Sen. Boxer has apparently been a champion for our cause in this debate.
Check out my interview with Tim Blumenthal of Bikes Belong. I talked to him right after he’d heard the news yesterday:
Interesting. Still, I have heard little about how much of that funding is worth any spending at all. Most bike facilities within range of my house have a net value that is somewhere in the negative range. And mostly even bike facility freaks would agree with the sign. It is what happens when motorists design what they imagine cyclists would use. One such is the scariest road I ride. Anywhere. Spending does NOT equal progress.
Gee….I wonder why we have a $1.4trillion+ deficit. You’re not taking any money from..MY…project.
And yes, I DO ride..for 50+ years & No, I’m not some wingnut Republican.
