BCIC Reader Featured in UA Newspaper Article

Andrew Miller, of the blog Elephants on Bicycles, was featured in an article in This Week: Upper Arlington about how the city of UA is losing population and revenue due to its inability to create an infrastructure that supports all forms of transportation.

The article was good, though I thought it seemed to imply that bikes were toys, a long-standing problem of perception about bicycles and cycling in general. All the talk about citizens wanting to keep fit and such doesn't really address the other reasons for cycling, and I think that tends to marginalize cycling and the need for better infrastructure for us.

Still, congratulations to Andrew. Keep up with Andrew's struggles to drag UA into the 21st Century at his blog.

People, not speed.
