Thank You Bicycle Activists
Sonoma County Gazette – 10/31/12
We are regular folk who use bicycles to ride to work and school, run errands, burn up a few calories, or enjoy rolling fellowship with friends on Sonoma County’s roads, routes and bike paths. We are the life-blood of our community, and we are thankful for our ability to partake in this economical, efficient, healthy and sustainable activity. This month, we shadow some folks who work around the clock to help make Sonoma County bike friendly.

Cycling in the Aftermath of Hurricane Sandy
Bicycling – 10/30/12
As Americans assess the damage from Hurricane Sandy, many are scratching their heads wondering how they’ll get around for the next few days. Streets are flooded, tress are down, roads are blocked by debris, gas stations are boarded up, and public transit is shut down. In my current digs, in New York City, the subway won’t reopen for nearly a week, and the bus system hardly rivals the speed and capacity of its underground counterpart.
