Sixty Second Cycling: A Few Interesting Posts to Read

Without further ado, here are a few interesting blog posts / articles I've come across in the last couple of days that you may find interesting:

New Life in the Valley - The Bicycle Blog of Wisconsin.  Spring is a time of renewal and Dave Schlabowske of the Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin illustrates this quite eloquently with the story of the Hank Aaron Trail.  What started with a vision for a bike trail through a disused and dilapidated industrial corridor has turned into a template for urban renewal.

The Invention of Jaywalking - The Atlantic.  Cars didn't always rule supreme over our roads and take precedence in infrastructure planning.  In fact, cars were once seen as a menace and a danger to the common man.  See how the nation's mindset changed in this eye-opening article, first shared with me by Momentum Magazine.

State Grant Key to Bike Path Plans - Beloit Daily NewsTrails for Illinois shared this article about both the hurdles and the growing enthusiasm for interconnected bicycling infrastructure.  Communities across the country are realizing the positive economic impact of bike trails and cooperating among many agencies and across state lines to realize results.
