"We want a cycling revolution..."

Last year I tried out the Green Bike Project here in Seattle and learned a couple things. A) Cycling to work is definitely rewarding B) Cycling to work can be really intimidating.

Seattle consistently ranks as one of the best cycling cities, so I can't imagine how hard it might be to commute through some of the "less-friendly" cycling cities (huge kudos to those of you that do!). Because of my experiences I've tried to stay tuned into what positive momentum is being generated for those that want to stay, or become, pedal-powered. Last week was the 10th year for the National Bike Summit in Washington D.C., and those that put it on feel they are making some great strides in awareness and legislation around cycling!

Watch Voices from the National Bike Summit by Streetfilms for a great recap of the event and hear directly from some of the amazing people pushing to make cycling a reality in the US.

Very cool to see people in their respective communities stepping up to make a difference for commuters.
Here in Seattle we have a couple of great organizations that do a great job with our local legislation. When people have a passion for this stuff I highly recommend investing a little time, it can make a big difference!
