Friday fun — encouraging words edition
June 3, 2011/
In Secretary LaHood’s latest On the Go video, he talks about helping Chicago’s new mayor create the nation’s largest bikeshare program and the importance of installing bike lanes in cities, but we are thrilled to hear him shift his message to motorists with these words: “I’ve also, more recently, been encouraging those that are behind the wheel of a car to pay attention to cyclists.” We agree — smart cyclists deserve smart motorists.
In other encouraging news, do yourself a favor and watch this video of a kid who just learned how to ride his bike give a pep talk to other kids out there trying to learn. I don’t know about you, but it made me want to go for a ride.
