I totally support what Secretary LaHood is saying (and, hopefully, doing) but I think he needs a better messaging approach. In this NYT interview, he says that biking and walking transportation alternatives are “what the American people want” at least six times. But damn, can you imagine if every city had bike lanes so that everyone – people on road bikes, people on cruisers, people with trailers and panniers and baskets – cycled as their primary mode of transportation? It would be so freaking sweet! And it’s why I’m a member of the San Francisco Bike Coalition.
