Good morning. My parents, lifelong Kentucky Wildcats fans, are probably still drunk.
- Alexandria Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee ride on April 14. "we will do a 13 mile ride from Old Town to National Harbor, with a detour to visit Oxon Hill Farms Park (at the head of the trail leading north into Washington DC).
Along the way we will discuss bicycle and pedestrian connections (and disconnections) and how they affect commerce on both sides of the Potomac. According to our data, about 1 million people ride into Old Town on the Mt Vernon Trail each year. With better bicycle connections, many of them could be guided towards shops in Old Town."
- Townson University experiments with a free bike rental program and it appears to be a hit.
- April Fool's joke.
- According to one study, the net social gain of biking is $0.42 per mile. Which means if Americans biked to work as often as people in Copenhagen do, it would be a $17 billion gain every year (of course, 35 percent nationwide probably isn't doable).
- OT: Pepco is still offering free trees.
