The left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. Classic government follies.

I'd love to do this for Indy. Indy has way too much parking everywhere.

Indy's Cultural Trail is now two years old and is a huge success in so many significant ways. It continues to receive wide acclaim throughout the country as being a model of success for what proper biking and pedestrian infrastructure can do when done in a smart way instead of only going by the engineer's guide book without thinking.

Arriving to the campus of the Indianapolis Art Museum by bicycle from the Central Canal Towpath has long been one of my favorite experiences of living in the city. Unfortunately, in an initiative that started along with their new admission charge, they have disallowed bicycle access to the front ...

Friendly, clean and very personable. Got a great haircut that I'm quite happy with with great attention to detail and style. The massage at the end was pretty relaxing too. I highly recommend this place. When you're done with the haircut, enjoy their location right in the City Market with many great places to eat at.
