    Great Roundup as usual, but why so many bikeportland links all the time? don’t get me wrong they have a fine site, just seems like the round ups are too filled with links to our little sister of a city blog.

    thanks for the great blog!

      Jonathan does great work. Plus I operate under the assumption that most SBB do not also read bike Portland (some do), and since Seattle and pdx are working with a lot of the same issues, it’s good to know some of the relevant highlights from down there. Plus he’s been doing a great job covering the national bike summit this week.

    As someone who grew up in Michigan, I *love* Mackinac Island, but it’s worth noting that it’s a resort community, not a city as we think of it here. Population in the winter is…not zero, but close to it. Also, if you bike there you have to get good at dodging road apples, because anything heavy or bulky is moved by horsecart. ;)

    “At the very heart of this strategy is my belief that helping cycling will not just help cyclists. It will create better places for everyone. It means less traffic, more trees, more places to sit and eat a sandwich. It means new life, new vitality and lower crime on underused streets. It means more seats on the Tube, less competition for a parking place and fewer cars in front of yours at the lights.” — Boris Johnson, Mayor of London

    I wish more people understood this.. Especially those calling for bicycle taxes.

    “commuters” tend to be white because, “they ride when they are counted, during normal rush hours, but if you go to restaurants and hotels at the shift change you’ll see Latinos and Blacks riding because they are poor and have always ridden”

    Statistics, you can prove anything, like there is no need for bicycling infrastructure because no one rides. If you aren’t counting everybody who is riding, it sure looks that way. That’s why I like those in the road bicycle loop counters. That should help pick up everybody who is riding, whenever they are out and about.
