Life is good when Bicycle infrastructure exists!
Just and example of a small investment the city can make - and did here in Cupertino, at one intersection. This is brilliant, as this street is a lower traffic street crossing a huge 6-7 lane DeAnza Blvd - and if there are no cars, one can't stay as a "vehicle" - but needs to find a pedestrian cross walk at another intersection. Bikes are vehicles more often than they are "pedestrians".
The freedom of riding a bike has always empowered me. Human or wind power ultimately wins in our mobility independence. Through decades of working in the bicycle industry (marketing and design), and more decades of riding a bike for exploration, commuting, health, community and even some competitions - I realize I can share stories and adventures that might be interesting to you the reader! --- Let's reduce our carbon footprints and get out of our cars and onto bikes more often! ---
