I love this. So much awesome stuff from Seattle’s greatest youth science entertainer.
Bill Nye the Science Guy envisions bicycle arterials all over the city, with showers in workplaces and lots of places to lock your bike securely. Hey, Seattle’s already got some of those!
And in his dream world, those bike arterials would be covered by a roof to make the cycling experience independent of the weather. That might seem excessive and expensive, but do you know how expensive roads are? Bill does, and he thinks bikeways are a better investment.
“You could do that, if you’re committed,” he said. “And you start to see that in places like Portland, Oregon, and Seattle.”
Funny, I would have assumed Bill Nye’s city of the future would have been designed for speed walkers…
