Contact Congress! Go for a ride! Speak at City Hall! Write a letter to the Editor! Make our streets safe for all!
Did you know that biking and walking fatalities represent 16.3 percent of all traffic deaths? Last week, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) confirmed that and that a total of 5,469 people killed.
The League of American Bicyclists reminds us that among those killed in 2013 was Joy Covey who helped catapult Amazon.com from a small company to today’s global powerhouse. Earlier this year, on a bicycle ride in San Mateo County, Calif., the 50 year old woman was struck by a delivery van and killed.
Contact members of Congress TODAY to ask them to co-sponsor H.R. 3494 / S. 1708, which requires the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) and state DOTs to account for and work to reduce bicyclist and pedestrian deaths. Take Action Here.

Have you seen a ghost bike in your community?
Pictured here is a ghost bike: simply, it’s a bicycle that has been painted white and placed where a bicyclist has died to remind us all of where and how they lost their lives–and to remind drivers to BE CAREFUL. (Learn about the Ghost Bike Film Project here).
In the past few years, far too many people have died or been seriously injured here in Ventura County as well as elsewhere by collisions between drivers and cyclists.
My friend Rachel Morris, the Executive Director of VCCool, recently let me know about a series of events here in Ventura to bring awareness and solutions to the traffic casualties that bikers and walkers are experiencing.

how about these Burning Man bicycles?
Going to Burning Man this year? Have you got your bike in gear? Have you been riding it around –day and night? Got lights?
You may still have time to make yourself this Cargo Cult bike and bike trailer!
This year will be our first year in a long time that we won’t have our Burley trailer. At nine, our son doesn’t quite fit in it like he used to.
If we had more room, we’d bring it anyway.

Boycott the internet today April 22, 2013 and let’s #StopCISPA
I had other plans for an Earth Day post but instead, I am supporting the #StopCISPA Boycott.
If WordPress makes it possible, I will black out my site until Tuesday.
For now, this cat (which you can download and upload to facebook and twitter to explain your absence), video, and message from Anonymous will have to suffice.
What is CISPA?
Under the guise of cyber-security, CISPA (the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act) is a bill that would grant corporations the power to share our emails, Facebook messages, and other sensitive online data with the government – all without a warrant.
CISPA would kill online privacy as we know it – nullifying the laws that require big corporations to keep our information private from government agencies like the National Security Agency. Those corporations wouldn’t have to notify you that they have done this and you wouldn’t be able to…
