- Worst cycling advocate ever? "A 38-year-old Live Oak man on a bicycle threatened a 3-year-old then ran over him in San Lorenzo Park on Wednesday, Santa Cruz police said."
- Weird fatality. Motorcyclist hits cyclist from behind. Motorcyclist dies.
- Michigan's house passes a law requiring driver's education to include bike laws.
- L.A. works on laws to making harassing a cyclist illegal. This article got a lot of comments.
- An interview with the California policy manager for the Safe Routes to School National Partnership
- A battle for control of Seattle's bike advocacy organization
- How do you visit L.A. for $100 a day? Rent a bike. [DC's Tourism office ought to approach travel writers about visiting DC and using CaBi to get around. I saw six on my (now, unfortunately) weekly ride to the property I manage. One was at the Marine Corps Memorial, which is a fair distance from any station.]
- "20% of bicycle commuters experienced a traumatic event [one that led to an injury] and 5% required medical attention during 1 year of commuting." If road rash or bruised shoulder counts as a traumatic event, that sounds reasonable. I've had two small crashes where I suffered superficial wounds since I started bike commuting.
- Just barely a bike story. A kid who attached an American flag to his bike was told by school officials to take it off. The real mistake - which did not get picked up by the national media - was last May when hispanic students got in trouble for bringing Mexican flags to school on Cinco de Mayo. The school was trying to be consistent. But there is little virtue in being consistently wrong.
