Bikes

As I sat at work and tried to figure out why I came in late last Friday, I realized it was for bike to work (or in my case bike to my kids school) day. So with that in mind, here are a few articles on bikes.

Starting us off is a nice story on bike paths out of Detroit entitled “Awesome! Abandoned Railroad Gets Converted in Biking and Walking Path in Detroit” by Michael Graham Richard at Treehugger.

As a librarian, I gotta love this article titled “Library Bikes: Too Good an Idea to be Quiet About” by Warren McLaren, also at Treehugger.

These next two are about two examples of bike sharing (to the north and south of us), an idea whose time has come. They are “Montreal Inaugurates Continent’s Most Ambitious Bike-Sharing Program” by Ian Austen at the New York Times and  “Rio de Janeiro’s Bike Sharing System, Appropriately Called Samba” by Paula Alvarado, at Treehugger.

Finally, here’s a story on a city in Europe going (mostly) without cars. It’s entitled “ In German Suburb, Life Goes On Without Cars” by Elisabeth Rosenthal at the New York Times.

On the road again-
