Philadelphia Bike Lanes

I'm wondering if Philadelphia is the unsung heroic city of the American bike scene. I hear a lot of good things. This video covers the opening of a crosstown bicycle lane.

Apparently one motorist thinks it'll be harder to drive down the street. He might actually have to pay attention now. Shock horror.

And Mayor Nutter... that name must get a giggle when and if he travels to England... is my new Cycle Chic hero. You don't need lycra, he says. Listen to the commentator... "He wore a SUIT... in a light drizzle!" As though he was leaping out of an airplane without a parachute. :-)

But this is good press for a change. Go Philly. Thanks to Jeff from LAB for the link.
