Today in Cycling History
From the Critical Mass list via SHIFT:
- July 25, 1896 - 6,000 bicycle parade down Market Street, San Francisco, in demand for good roads (be careful what you ask for)
- July 25, 1997 - 6,000 bicycle parade takes over San Francisco (corrupt Mayor, police attack with mass media uproar conveniently masking major transportation scandals)
- July 25, 2003 - Bike Summer NYC * New York is tasting the nectar (Still battling for the right to ride)

Give us better roads because we're entitled to things at the expense of others. It's sad when socialist policies are enacted. They always, almost ALWAYS backfire.
...So I would say bikes in PDX are better off than they where 10-20 or even 30 years ago. Would others agree with that?
