Three Feet Please
The genius behind this jersey is Joe Mizereck, who is not only a Tallahassean, but also a supporter of The BikeWalk Network. His website where you can order your very own three feet jersey is www.3feetplease.com.

For now, here are several links to the local fishwrapper and the spate of bicycle-related writing.
That middle link includes an invitation from the media to comment to a reporter:
Please contact public safety reporter Nic Corbett before Wednesday about what you think the community should do to prevent similar crashes from happening. Corbett may be reached at (850) 599-2161 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name and number.

It is *really* interesting to sort and compare (it is VERY easy to use). If you try it, see what happens when looking at all places vs. comparing "likes," e.g., cities (or towns) of certain population ranges. It's also very interesting to look at all the commute modes -- what are the public transit rates like in places with high bike commuter %s , and vice versa?
And trends, 1990 vs. 2000. etc. I know we all know about the data, it's just that I hadn't see it so readily accessible elsewhere.
Here are some stats on Tallahassee.

Ride of Silence
On May 16, 2007, at 7:00 PM, the Ride of Silence™ will begin in North America and roll across the globe. Cyclists will take to the roads in a silent procession to honor cyclists who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways. Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, the motoring public often isn't aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves.In Tallahssee the ride was organized by Roger Holdener. Four cyclists participated, up from one sole cyclist last year. The ride started at Tom Brown Park at 6:00 p.m. and followed the Park-Call corridor to the downtown, then took Adams Street to the Capitol, where we stopped in front of the Old Capitol building for a photo.
The four riders are Mike Dunaway, Dwight Kingsbury, Roger Holdener, and Chris Sands. Next year we hope to see another fourfold increase in participants.

The Walking Bus.
From their website:
Each walking bus had an adult 'driver' at the front and and an adult 'conductor' bringing up the rear. The children walk to school in a group along a set route picking up additional 'passengers' at specific 'bus-stops' along the way.
The bus runs rain or shine and everyone wears a reflective jacket. Along the way children can chat to their friends, learn valuable road safety skills and gain some independence.

Bike Lane Parking
We may have to add Tallahassee to their list of cities.
