Private classes announced

FYI, I have 3 private classes scheduled through the rest of 2018, if you or someone you know in metro ATL has been wanting to get back on bike. Click here. Advertisements

Truth at a crossroads

So I’m reading an excellent new book from Microcosm Publishing titled Bicycle/Race, written by Dr. Adonia E. Lugo (who helped start the CycLAvia open streets events in Los Angeles years ago) and I’m reminded about something I knew but now am seeing more clearly. A significant percentage of people riding bikes in the United States…

5-year anniversary

Multiuse paths for “commuters”

Here’s what it looks like to “commute” on busy Ashford Dunwoody Road in the self-proclaimed “family friendly” metro-Atlanta suburb-city of Dunwoody, Georgia.

Less than .2%

You have probably read the statistics about the sharp decline in children walking and riding bikes to school. You may not really realize how dramatic it has been until you see the empty bike racks. In the suburb-city where I live, it would have taken 65 students riding their bikes to school today (which was…
