    Great job last night Matt! I think you and all of the panelists laid it right out there – a thoughtful piece. When does this air on the radio?

    Got to get corporations involved. That's where the money is… http://bike-n-chain.blogspot.com/2013/04/headcoun

    Badly designed/maintained roads throughout city increase risks for both bicyclists, who try to dodge craters, dunes and gravel, and motorists, who are forced to swing wide around cyclists on shared pavement. But corporate pressure would increase city's cooperation to plan and remedy.
