OWNING THE ROAD RULES
Sane biking in a car-crazy world

By Julye Hannus - May/June 2007 - Utne Reader

There are so many reasons to ride a bike, the roads should be swarming with cyclists enjoying cheap, sustainable, healthy transportation. There's just that one hitch: Riding in traffic is intimidating. "In [the United States] it seems cycling anywhere except in parks is dangerous," observes the Vancouver-based Momentum magazine (Feb./March 2007), which also notes that compared to Canada, England, and a slew of European countries, the United States spends the least per capita on cycling infrastructure. And has the highest rate of injuries to riders.

TRANSIT EXPERT: CAST OUT AUTOS
Cutting traffic brings happiness, former Bogota mayor tells gathering

By Eric N. Nelson - May 31, 2007 - Inside Bay Area

If you can name it-Tall Bike Jousting, Track Bikes, BMX, Alleycats, Critical Mass, Bike Polo, Cycling to Recumbents- we've probably either ridden or screened it. What better way to celebrate these lifestyles than through art, film, music and performance?

CARS AND BICYCLES SHOULDN'T COMPETE
By Gordon Dillow -OC Register

I was driving along an open stretch of Pacific Coast Highway the other day, at or just under the posted speed limit of 50 mph, and every hundred yards or so I was passing groups of two or three or a dozen bicyclists pedaling along in the bike lane. And that's when it occurred to me:

I don't want to share the road. More specifically, I don't want to share a high-speed road with bicycle riders – not because it's that big of a problem for me, but because it's too dangerous for them.
