Jason Stover from Consider Biking (and his own blog) passes on a message he received from Dublin's mayor, Marilee Chinnici-Zuercher.
Jason,People, not speed.
I am in full agreement with you regarding the need for bike racks at shopping centers. I will work with the staff to be sure we include them in our code and as a requirement for shopping areas. It is strange that we encourage walking, biking etc. through our terrific bikepath system yet don't have available the racks once people get to their destination.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
