Governing Magazine has an interesting story up on the effort many cities are making to add good bike infrastructure to their streets.
On Wednesday, September 21, RIDE Solutions participated in Virginia Tech’s Active Commute Celebration. The event included 13 groups and organizations on campus and in the larger community that are promoting sustainable ways to actively commute – i.e., bike, bus and walk – and offering ways to change your perspective on when and where you can leave your car behind.
A number of friends have shared with me, via social media, a video you may have seen. It’s basically an airbag for cyclists, a collar that inflates suddenly into protective headgear in the case of a crash. If your thing is interesting industrial design, the Hovding may be for you. But if you’re concerned with safe riding, I worry it’s a distraction.
At the end of May, we recognized some amazing people in the region who have helped make cycling safe and accessible for everyone. Now that things have calmed down a bit, we wanted to take a moment and introduce you to them. First up, our Extraordinary Bicycle Professional award winners: Kali Casper and Anne McClung.
