"Forget, then, all about Global Warming, air pollution, personal health, freedom of choice, or anything else when speaking to conservative-leaning oppositionists: the fact is that supporting bicycling infrastructure in our cities is the most fiscally responsible program for supporting the mobility our economies depend on.

The more you support cycling, the less you'll have to pay in taxes, and the better your business communities will thrive.

The bottom line has spoken."

"There aren't very many economic scenarios in this country where everyone wins. But if you had to choose one single thing that could pull our neighborhoods, towns, and cities out of this murky pit of a recession, you'd do well to bet on the humble bicycle."

Weds. is National Bike DAY and our cycling club will observe it through our Ride of Silence:

If any local cyclists care to join us, our ride is open to the public. You must wear your bicycle helmet! We start at Binghamton's Recreation Park at 7 pm!

See you there!
