After my post about a car, I thought I'd better write something about how bikes can replace cars. But those consummate liberals at the Wall Street Journal have beaten me too it. Check out this article and slide show about bike transportation in Europe. The WSJ waxing poetically about bike culture---have I fallen down the rabbit hole?
The WSJ also gives a nice plug to The Dutch Bike Company, which sells a nice selection of heavy, but sturdy, Dutch cycles here in the US.
The idea of free or low cost loaner bikes has really taken off in some European cities. Read this post from TreeHugger that reports the Barcelona bike program has had some 30,000 users in three months.
