Velo Cult bike shop hosted a hoppin' party last night as a huge crowd turned out to help launch the bike book: Hop in the Saddle: A Guide to Portland's Craft Beer Scene, by Bike.... It's exciting how Velo Cult has lived up to their promises of becoming so much more than a bike shop.
San Diego County governments may have to redraw a nearly $200 billion plan that lays out transportation projects for the next 40 years.A county judge ruled this week that the plan doesn't meet state environmental laws on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.The plan, adopted by the San Diego Association of Governments, calls for meeting transportation needs in the growing county with 130 new highway lanes, 156 miles of trolley service and nearly $4 billion in bike and pedestrian projects.It was challenged by preservation groups and state Attorney General Kamala Harris.Colleen Windsor, a spokeswoman for the San Diego Association of Governments, said the group feels the plan does meet state requirements. The group's board will meet Friday to discuss the ruling.
Sigurd:I don't understand - if your work is found to be lacking, why not just go back to the drawing board and fix it?
I am emailing you to let you and your community know that at some point in the next few months the City will be installing an All Way Stop in Talmadge at the intersection of Aldine Drive and Monroe Avenue.Over the past 3 years there have been 13 reported accidents at this location, far above Council Policy 200-08 requirement for 5 accidents over 3 years to justify such a measure.I thought City Heights should be informed because the consequent queuing of cars on Monroe Avenue will probably divert many City Heights drivers away from Monroe-Aldine and onto ECB-Fairmount. The change in driving behavior at the Euclid - ECB intersection will probably lead to service failures at that intersection as far more northbound drivers attempt unprotected left turns westward onto ECB. My guess is it will be worst during the morning commute.I wanted to keep City Heights in the loop.Regards,David MotyChair, Kensington-Talmadge Planning Group
markphilips:Off Topic but just saying that you can't out run a train. Tragedy. I've crossed this tracks so many times in the last 4 years in different modes of transport. http://www.cbs8.com/story/20299428/tow-truck-driver-killed-by-amtrak-train-in-cardiff-idd
Sam:I got this via email. New stop sign at Aldine Dr and Monroe Ave
sykkelspruce:Are there any numbers as of yet? Or when did the counting start?
In the end, Gritzner didn't pay much for his crime and cover-up. He was charged with "misdemeanor property damage" by the L.A. City Attorney, who couldn't get excited about a hit-and-run in which no bones were broken — that would be a felony. According to Ward, Gritzner only had to pay a $500 fine and pick up trash for 30 days.
OH MY GOD PEOPLE RIDE BICYCLES HOW INCREDIBLY STRANGE

JSnook: VeloCafé:And the honeymoon is already over as Filner caves to urbanites car culture.I take issue with the headline and calling these people NIMBYs. The reality is they are primary stakeholders in that neighborhood, and weren't treated as such. Most likely if the city/developers came to them earlier with a story and vision for the project, they would have got them on board. I've seen this same lack of basic management and leadership skills play out in my neighborhood, where developers got a significant project approved which was later canned after a community uprising. Calling residents or business owners of a neighborhood NIMBYs seems a bit out-dated and arrogant. It's a shame when these projects which would be positive for these neighborhoods get sunk due to poor leadership.

Transportation groups present included Walk San Diego, BikeSD, Move San Diego and Great Streets San Diego. Greater North Park, Uptown Centre City, Old Town and Balboa Park planning committees also took part as stakeholder groups.
Cyclists sharing transit only lanes with buses may not be ideal but a shared transit/bicycle lane would be a great improvement over what's there today. I'll take sharing a lane with busses that come every 10 min as opposed to a general purpose lane any day of the week.
Good design also improves human behaviour. I hear the same thing all over the world. Those damn cyclists. Breaking the law, running red lights, riding on sidewalks. Shaking the very foundations of our society with their behaviour. Well, I have one, simple response to that. Those cyclists haven't been given adequate infrastructure – or worse... none at all. Not to mention the fact that they are forced to abide by car-centric laws.
