Let's Go Ride a Bike - or Fly a Kite...I'm Not Picky

...or ride a bike to the park to fly a kite...or...

As most people know, I am an advocate of alternative transportation. Instead of being grossly dependent on cars, walking or bicycling (especially short distances) are excellent options! Here's a great article about the benefits of making a city "bike friendly."

Cities who have more bicyclists have safer, happier, healthier neighborhoods. Although, there is a great deal of "red tape" in getting bicycle initiatives passed, (based on other cities experience) it's not too terribly expensive to incorporate safe bicycling within the city. The biggest challenge, it seems, is changing citizens and policy makers' mind set.
