We’re Taking a Spring Break

I’ve got spring fever, so I’m taking a much-deserved one week break from producing Streetsblog San Francisco, along with my colleague Aaron Bialick. I look forward to spending a lot of time on my bicycle and at the beach! Have a great week and we’ll see you back here on April 11th.

    Happy vacation! But you’re going to miss Bike to School Day. I think it’s going to be much bigger this year than last year–many more schools participating.

    Bryan, you really need a bike helmet.

    Guess we can put topics to discuss in the meantime on here?

    Forbes discusses VMT.

    “The VMT is not suggested just as a way to bring in revenue, though. It is also envisioned as a way to shape human behavior, most directly, by providing incentives that would help relieve highway congestion.”

    And for all those who argue that gas taxes pay for highways and roads and cyclists are free-loaders:

    ” the government supplemented the Highway Trust Fund to the tune of $30 billion from 2008 to 2010.”

  • You look very happy there. Probably because you aren’t riding with the maniac drivers in South City.

    That’s scary stuff. A close call. Can that be submitted to the police? Not that they’d do anything but a copy should be given to them just in case this asshole does it again.

    East Bay Bike Party invites you to join in the fun this Friday, 7:30-10:30, starting out at El Cerrito Plaza BART and ending at Albany Bowl. This month’s theme is “The Big Lebowski”. We ride (and abide) safely and have a great time–won’t you join us?

    Caltrain is clueless. They kicked the can down the road for years and now it’s time to pay the piper. Who suffers? Us. Per usual.

    “will mean the end of the line for the popular Baby Bullet trains, station closures and fare and parking fee increases if it is approved.”

    “The Baby Bullets, which take 57 minutes to travel from San Jose to San Francisco and make six or eight stops along the way, will be replaced with trains that make 12 stops and take about 70 minutes to travel the distance.”

    Happy Bike to School Day everyone!
