Clear path for pedal power

Picking up on President Bush's call for saving energy, Mighk Wilson calls for helping more people use their bikes instead of their cars for short-distance transportation. Some of his points:
  • We need high-quality bicycle parking at all commercial locations: racks for short term use, and bike lockers or indoor parking for employees.
  • Employers who provide showers and changing rooms for their employees are already on to something important; they are critical in Florida's heat and humidity.
  • It's also time for zero tolerance toward motorists who harass and threaten cyclists.
There's more at the Orlando Sentinel. Wilson, you will recall, is the bicycle-pedestrian coordinator for Metroplan Orlando and president of the Florida Bicycle Association.
