I did some catching up on my bike-related reading today. The highlights included:
- a little inspiration and solidarity from my fellows at the Car for Bike Trade Blog.
- The discovery of the Boneshaker: A Bicycling Almanac pageand its array of great reads on the bike life from the NYTimes.
- Pavement’s Edge, the wonderfully robustblog of a neighboring cyclist, who discusses daily his biking adventures and his family’s quest to live life conscientiously.
And so on, down the rabbit hole that is the world wide web. I generally keep a good track record of worthy reads on this blog’s Facebook page.
But these weren’t the only lines I was paying attention to in Denver today. This morning, I passed a city worker in a little open-air motorized wagon-type vehicle repainting the white bike lane lines down 22nd Street. It was just him in a pair of coveralls with a crappy blue mask to keep the VOCs out, and a white city truck with its yellow lights backing him up. Here’s a look at his finished work, standing up to a rainburst.
The argument has been made before and it will be made again: if you build it, they will come. Denver isn’t slacking when it comes to building biking infrastructure, so hop on your ride and come enjoy the bikescape!
