I spent a good chunk of my Saturday volunteering at a "bike rodeo" for kids under six. I don't have kids myself but it seemed like a fun event and I badly needed a distraction from some family health issues and associated family drama...

I wound up riding the Greater Victoria Cycling Coalition's cargo trike to the event (it's a bit of a beast) and then letting various people try it out.

We had 20-25 kids on their own bikes, and one other cargo bike that folks were able to try out. The lacrosse box was perfect for this sort of thing!

Cycling without Age ... What a wonderful and inspirational story. This man tells the story of how he started riding with the elderly and the changes it's made to the people involved.
A real feel good bike story.

Pedestrian bridge update:

Exhibit A... New footings will be poured soon, adjacent to the old bridge. This will place the path along the street, rather than the sidewalk. A benefit to us road cyclists (yay, us!).

Exhibit 2... The new bridge will be twice as wide as the old, and is somehow also a closed road at the moment.

The pay is shamefully low considering the responsibilities, but the Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Manager position with the Oregon Department of Transportation looks interesting.
