Some weeks it just all comes together...
A bit of a big week in MinusCarLandia. There a few pots on the stove. I'm almost to busy too drive - and that's reflected in the donut!
My favorite meeting this last week was the CAC of the MPO at SECOG. There was lots of discussion about what it means to have received the Bicycle Friendly Community award. Lots of people are pretty happy about it. I didn't hear a bit of cynicism. When traffic engineers are happy about bikes, I'm happy about bikes.
At that meeting an engineer explained how it was that for many years traffic engineers have gnashed their teeth and asked the question - what would happen if the sensitivity of vehicle sensors was increased to detect bikes. Would it mess up traffic?
Our fresh young engineer turned all that upside down by going out and increasing the sensitivity of some of the vehicle sensors.
That story brought a lot of laughter into the room. If you can't laugh at yourselves who can you laugh at, eh?
The other big things are the No Impact Man movie and the Falls Area Singletrack project. There's probably a post or two about those nearby.
