Yesterday, I added a new banner to the blog on the sidebar. You probably didn't notice it, when you read this channel over a RSS feed or reader... So here it is in the blog, so you can't say you didn't know! ;-)
It's the banner for peopleforbike.org and I would really like for you to sign the pledge.... pretty please.
Don't worry, you won't sign you life away and your e-mail address won't be sold to phony companies. All you say with your pledge is:
"I am for bikes. I'm for long rides and short rides. I'm for commuting to work, weekend rides, racing, riding to school, or just a quick spin around the block. I believe that no matter how I ride, biking makes me happy and is great for my health, my community and the environment we all share. That is why I am pledging my name in support of a better future for bicycling—one that is safe and fun for everyone. By uniting my voice with a million others, I believe that we can make our world a better place to ride. "
Strength in numbers and to show that this is what the people want. That adding a bike lane to a road is not some fashion statement, but actually what is needed and wanted in your area.
It's also not only about bikes... It's also about walking and making the streets a safer place for alternative modes of transportation in general.
Happy Thursday everyone! ;-)
