Quote of the Day

January 3, 2013

“People’s choices are shaped largely by their environment; put an escalator next to stairs, 99% of people will not take the stairs. Build things that are good for a person on a bike — whether they are eight or eighty — and you’ll get more people on bikes. Get more people on bikes, and the other issues, like behavior and safety, virtually take care of themselves.” – Tom Vanderbilt

    Thank you Tom!
    Myself I wish for:
    - bike storage on the sidewalk, so I don’t have to carry my bike up and down the stairs
    - built-in locks with numbers in front of most shops (like in some swimming pools), so I don’t have to carry a lock and find the key each time
    - fun, affordable bikes for rent by the hour so I can go around with my kids or visiting friends: some with baskets, tandem, pink, blue…
    But the best would be not to own any bike and have bikes available on every block in Brooklyn: dying to see Citibike up and running as a starting point
