- On why the M Street and L Street projects were decoupled: "These projects have lots of pieces. We have limited staff working on them. That's really all we can handle -- one at a time," said Mike Goodno, who oversees bike lanes for the D.C. Department of Transportation.
- And then check out this refreshingly reasonable response from AAA's John Townsend, maybe he truly is giving up the "war" rhetoric of the past. "'We think the [cycling] trend is here to stay. ... Motorists have to become more sensitized to the presence of cyclists," Townsend said, adding that he would like to see D.C. invest more in roads. "We're not adding any more capacity for automobiles, and that is a great concern for many motorists."'
- A problem unique to L.A.: It has a bright green bike lane is on a street film crews like to film on. "the bright green of the bike lane is costly to erase if you're filming, say, a scene that takes place in the 1940s and you don't want a bright green bike lane running down the middle of your shot. It can't be lifted out of film by the usual post-production technique known as chroma keying, and it is more expensive to remove than other greens. And it's not just the street that needs to be color-corrected. Under the bright lights used for filming, the green bounces off the street and tints everything it touches, including actors' faces" But filming companies are being pretty reasonable, they want it painted another color. "There may not be 50 shades of green that will work for both bicyclists and moviemakers. But surely there is one."
- A natural combination? The Portland Art Museum is teaming up with the World Naked Bike Ride. "For the museum, its new exhibit "Cyclepedia" is opening -- a collection of 36 weird and wonderful bikes highlighting innovative design through the decades....And so it is on June 8, cyclists in various stages of undress will meet at the museum. They'll get a special deal to see "Cyclepedia" from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., when the ride begins: The price of admission to the show is $1 per item of clothing. That means no clothes -- no charge." The Portland Art Museum is featured in this not-particularly-funny sketch from Portlandia.
