Texas embraces bike lanes, Rob Ford yanks them out ...… …
Rising obesity rates across the country have drawn increased attention to Texas, where two-thirds of residents are overweight or clinically obese. The unwanted publicity of landing high on various “fattest cities” lists has heightened interest in doing more to encourage bicycle use, according to some city officials.
“I think what made city leaders take notice is we kept getting on lists that didn’t look so good for the city,” said Julia Murphy, a biking manager in San Antonio’s sustainability department. “We were all tired of having that reputation.”
The recent creation and expansion of bike-share systems in three Texas cities has both promoted biking and fueled increased calls for expanding biking infrastructure in those communities. San Antonio introduced the state’s first bike-share system in 2011 with 13 stations, Ms. Murphy said. By the end of August, the city will have 52 stations and 500 bikes.
About two to three miles is the sweet spot where it really can be more efficient and faster to take a bike,” said Annick Beaudet, a City of Austin planner who had previously worked as bicycle program manager for the city.
Julia McCleeary, a Fort Worth senior planner, said the city’s strategy had been to encourage cyclists to use roads that were originally built to accommodate more traffic than they currently receive.
“They were roads that perhaps served a greater purpose 40 years ago, but now that there’s a freeway nearby, there’s a lot of excess capacity,” she said.
great message for Ed... city as floorplan.. et al

people who mispronounce words because they learned them from reading independently are deserving of admiration not scorn

I would love to see some Social Work students go into nursing homes and show families how to post reviews on Yelp.

same for many places.. perhaps..?

but temporary... not to spend our time whining.. just to wake institutions up to the starfish movement..

My new ambition is to write books where I make up words just so I can look for people using them and pretending to know what they mean.
