We want to live in a world full of bicycles. The transportation mode share for bicycles in Berkeley is said to be around 8%. This is high for the US, but nothing like some European cities, like Amsterdam and Copenhagen, which I saw quoted as 36% bicycle mode share. So, what does this all mean? Bikes make all of our lives better, for all the good energy saving, environmental reasons, but also for lots of good social reasons. Bikes bring us closer together and enhance our neighborhoods and communities. What are we saying? Just ride!
