Careful what you wish for....

What do bicyclists and rabbits have in common?

I recently received a link to a blog by a fellow named David Hembrow, who lives in Assen, Drenthe, Netherlands. I felt such a kinship with the good news that his community has established bicycle parking in connection with transit -- in this case, a train station. I hope you were also as impressed as I was by the town's rush hour You Tube video on the blog.

But, I guess the bad news I also know so well is that there is still not enough. Bicycling and increases in parking enter into a marriage of sorts, and the union is blessed with a steady and prolific production of bicyclists.

That would make advocates for bicycle infrastructure like the marriage counselors, easing the troubles that any relationship would struggle with; money, communication skills, procreation vs recreation.
