Portland is supposed to be the most bike friendly city in America. Also check out the totally functional if not fashionable panniers.

HB 437 heard in House today

Bike Walk Tennessee not only works to promote legislation that benefits Bike/Ped, but we also work to stop bills that potentially harm.

From: Bud Curtis, Director - Alternative Risk Solutions

I called Speaker Harwell’s office this AM and was assured that the bill will not make it out of committee.

United States Bicycle Route System

. . The United States Bicycle Route System (USBRS) is gaining support daily. Click a state to see the most up-to-date state status on the project. The National Corridor Plan identifies 50-mile wide corridors, both prioritized (numbered) and un-prioritized (faint brown corridors). The Plan can change, based upon state opportunities and interests, with new corridors or realignments. As corridors turn into routes, the lines will go from wide swaths of color to defined routes. Links to U.S. Bike Route (USBR) maps, state bike maps and informational websites will be provided as they become available.

Michael Montgomery accident

The recent accident where Michael Montgomery was hit by a truck on Highway 96 has members of the Harpeth Bike Club seriously upset.  Recent posts have suggested:

How about a MASSIVE group ride to the capitol to help deliver the  message?  Say 200-300 riders (hopefully more) with print/TV this doable?
I feel some type of concerted effort, on a  grand scale, is required to get the attention of lawmakers and law enforcement.  We owe it to those who have been seriously injured/killed in the  well as those in the future, which on any given day could be one of us.

Car Runs Down 40 Bicyclists

Sorry I Didn't See You?

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. _ Look closely at this picture. This is what the motorist failed to see when he hit Ernie Wu at 6:30 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 29. Wu, CEO and president of ERC Inc., was riding to work in the pre-dawn darkness when the motorist struck him on a stretch of Drake Avenue with a quarter mile of visibility, no rain, no fog, street lights and no other traffic on the road.
