Top 10 Excuses for Not Biking to Work (and how to fix them) from Bike Walk CT:
#10 It’s Too Dangerous -
Most of us are creatures of habit. If we’ve always driven to work, we might only be familiar with the most heavily traveled roads. Take time on the weekends (by car or by bike) to search out what alternatives might be available. Local bike shops or clubs can be very helpful, as can online maps that feature bike-friendly directions. Practice your ride to work on a quiet weekend, beforehand.

If you can’t completely eliminate travel on a high-speed, or congested, road, make yourself as visible as possible (lights, reflectors, hi-vis clothing), obey the traffic laws, signal your turns, and make eye contact with merging drivers.

Happy to report that the Mill Plain Road Route cleared the Police Commission on 4/10. Now its just paint on road and signs in the ground and we're done!

Congratulations to the East Coast Greenway for getting approval from the Police Commission to install ECG Route signage through our town. Hopefully we should see the signs by this summer! Here is the proposed route: http://ow.ly/iZ67D

Friends, if you haven't done so already, as kids get ready to go back to school tomorrow make sure that your sidewalks are clear for them to safely walk their route.
