- Reminder of the meeting of the Inter-Agency Task Force for Bicycling and Active Transportation. Tomorrow night.
- And the DC BAC Facilities meeting.
- Another letter asking why cyclists ride on MacArthur Blvd. Dr. Gridlock's response, while briefer than my own, is not bad.
- More Agenda 21 opposition to bike lanes. 'The Republican National Committee resolution, passed without fanfare on Jan. 13, declared, “The United Nations Agenda 21 plan of radical so-called ‘sustainable development’ views the American way of life of private property ownership, single family homes, private car ownership and individual travel choices, and privately owned farms; all as destructive to the environment.”' I think we'd probably disagree on what defines "individual travel choices". But not all Republicans are against bike facilities. Check out Candace Miller in Michigan on this graphic. "Miller secured a $486,000 earmark in 2006 to help add a 14-foot-wide bike lane to a new bridge over the Clinton River, about 900 feet from her home. "People earmark for all kinds of things," Miller said. "I'm pretty proud of this; I think I did what my people wanted. Should I have told them, 'We can never have this bike path complete because I happen to live by one section of it'? They would have thrown me out of office."
