Attack on Car Culture - WSJ

Wall Street Journal

In today's (fri. 5/4) WSJ there's a very cool piece titled "Building a Better Bike Lane - Bike-friendly cities in Europe are launching a new attack on car culture. Can the U.S. catch up?" by Nancy Keates. It's on the front page of the Weekend Journal section.

You have to be a subscriber to view it online, but if you can get your hands on a hard copy of the paper you should check it out. It's a big story with some nice photos and a couple of useful tables (one about bike-friendly cities in the U.S. and the other about where to buy Dutch-style bikes).

Check check check it ouuuuut!

Unfortunately this will be a long time coming. We can't even adopt car free days in major cities let alone set aside millions of $ to build bike lanes. There are a few cities like Raleigh and Portland that do have greenways but I think we're a long way off from full on bike "roads"

For some real Dutch commuter bikes, check these out:
