+One Spark Starts today and continues through Sunday.

The best and easiest way to get to and around downtown is by bicycle.

There is a free Bike Valet for the 5 day event located mid-block on Monroe St. Across from Hemming Plaza.

The +City of Jacksonville, Florida & Council members may have sent out history today. They may have for the first time in this city's history stood up to FDOT with a very well written response to the I-10/95 Fuller Warren bridge project. 

Hats off to Council members.

Is Your Car Making Making You Fat?

"A recent study of the link between driving and obesity showed a result that surprised even its lead researcher: Every 30 minutes you spend each day in a car increases your risk of being obese by 3%."

Embarrassing data.... but I know that we can, should, and will do better here in Florida. We have ideal biking topography and great weather, so the only thing keeping us from leading the country in biking and bike safety is ourselves. Make our streets safer and friendlier for biking and walking, and we will gain more bikers and walkers, and we'll all be healthier too.
