bicycle version of zip cars in europe

Paris Bicycle Program

here in the states it is not so much an issue of availble bikes
as so many people own bikes
just so few people ride them

the cars need to chill out
the cars need to slow down

so often there are congetstion issues and the DOT people work to break up the congetstion
allow the congestion to remain
maybe people will get the point and look for alternative means of transport
it blows my mind that HOV is two people

lines and lines of cars with a driver and all sorts of empty seats

and this from a Seattle paper
a motor that assists the bicycle
while I approve of alternative transportation
I do not approve of motorized vehicles on the bicycle paths
this motor on a bicycle is no new thing
in the end... it you want a bicycle buy a bicycle if you want a motorcycle... well those already exist
