Happy Friday.

John Forester, the (in)famous creator of Effective Cycling will participate in a radio discussion of bikeway history and affairs this Sunday, November 10, 2013 at 5 PM on KKUP, 91.5 FM in Santa Clara Valley. As far as I can tell there’s no online listening available.

    I am most definitely not a fan of Forester. 35 years of failure to prove his central tenant.
