Re: [CF] One generation's Antarctic legacy no better than another's
- Not being judgemental here...but maybe you shouldn't have gone? If I cant get there by bicycle or PT I don't go. Even to things I'd love to go too.
Although sometimes \I wonder if missing out on stuff or being inconvenienced is making any difference at all. Maybe I should just go and enjoy myself because 'One Less Car' doesn't help anything :-(

I am guilty of that. Not exactly an Earth Day

Earth Day. About 400 miles of jammed highway 101 in a

seeing vehicles I had only seen on-line (as others
have seen mine) was a terrific gathering, but passing
$3.00 a gallon gas signs all the way made it painfully
obvious to me that many people are in a huge state of
That event was a first, and because the main Santa

the California State ride detours S.C) ; my passion of
human power vehicles led me to pollute-mobile status.

Our buses have racks on them that carry two bikes, and if they are
full you can even take your bike inside if there aren't any people in
the wheelchair bays (but that's at the driver's discretion, and some
are assholes about it). I just saw a sign that they will be upgrading
the racks to accomodate three bikes.
No, it's a fear issue. I get out late at night and part of my trip is
a windy country road with a bit of gravel on the side and a drop-off
that people drive fast on, and the other part of my trip is the bike
trail where there are no cars, but it's not lit, there are trees
bordering it on both sides, and I just don't feel safe.
It's possible that I could alter my trip and take only well-lit roads
with bike lanes. I'll have to scout out the area more.
