Hey,
we need your help again for our next slide show. This one is going to
make you feel good. We’re looking for pictures of kids on bikes — on
their own, with their parents, on trailers and seats and Xtracycles and
whatever other kind of rig there is. Show us what you’ve got.

Send your JPEGs to sarah [@] streetsblog [dot] org, or tag them
with "kidbikes" and "streetsblog" in Flickr. Your deadline is next
Tuesday, November 24.

Our past slide shows have been on bike traffic, space hogs, work bikes and crummy transit conditions. Check them out if you haven’t already.

Transit in Trouble Where You Live

|
Let’s get one thing straight right off the bat: We love transit. Love love love. But that’s why we hate it so much when transit infrastructure and transit riders are neglected. And they are. The nation’s buses and trains and light rail are too often underfunded, dismissed, vandalized and disrespected. Transit riders deserve better. We […]

Calling for Your Photos of Work Bikes

|
There’s still time to submit photos for our next slide show. We’re looking for pictures of bikes at work — hauling, delivering, getting the job done. International submissions are definitely welcome. The shot below, showing the Santa Cruz candy man on his way to hawk his wares on the boardwalk, captures the spirit perfectly. It […]

Your Eyes on Your Streets: Space Hogs

|
Our first user-generated slide show, on bike traffic, was a lot of fun. (See it here.) This time out, we’re looking for pictures that show cars — the most inefficient form of transportation — hogging public space. Reader Evan Goldin has already sent along a few, including the image at right, which he snapped with […]

Wanted: Your Photos of Crummy Transit Conditions

Waiting to board the B44 in Brooklyn. Photo: Benjamin Fried Our latest call for photos was inspired by the picture at right, taking by Streetsblog New York’s own Ben Fried. It’s an all too familiar scene — transit riders crammed together, waiting for a bus (or train) that doesn’t come when it’s supposed to (if […]

The Great Debate: Balance Bikes vs. Training Wheels

|
Kids Skuuting during Mission Sunday Streets last year. Photo: SF Bike. (This story originally appeared on the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition’s blog) There are two factions in this city as polarized as Republicans and Democrats, and the debate is taking place on playgrounds across San Francisco: training wheels, or balance bikes? For those of you […]

Space Hogs Where You Live

|
It’s time for another slide show from the Streetsblog Network. Last time, we asked you for images of bike traffic from around the country. You can see the result here. This time, we were looking for pictures of cars and other motor vehicles hogging space. And boy, did you deliver. We had dozens of submissions […]
