Learn how to ride safely, learn how to carry groceries, learn how to forgive the ill-mannered drivers who have not yet learned that to be slow and exposed can also mean to be free and alive. Almost everyone out there in those tin boxes is a potential bicyclist. It’s up to you to show them that it’s not only beautiful, but feasible. (…)

Aus dem 10 Jahre alten Artikel „Do We Really Need Bikepaths?“ des bemerkenswerten Richard Risemberg, der den Nagel auf den Kopf trifft.
