Bike to the Future

April 30, 2013

Every day we live in a world shaped by the values of our forebears.  Blankets of pavement painted with wide lanes, signed for high speeds, and striped into vast fields for parking tell the story all too well: our predecessors loved their cars.  Had our ancestors foreseen decades of highway fatalities, morbid obesity, oil wars, and societal ostracization, perhaps we would live in a different world today.  Regardless, as these consequences have become increasingly clear, our affections have begun to shift, and it’s our turn to shape the physical and cultural landscape that future generations will inherit.  The Chapel Hill Bike Plan will produce a document that our descendants may never read, but the message we paint on our streets in lanes and paths will shape their world nonetheless.

Help decide where, how, and when our small corner of the world will change at the first public forum for the Chapel Hill Bike Plan: Thursday, May 9th from 6 to 9 pm at the Chapel Hill Public Library.

For folks that want to ride to the event in party formation, there will bike a bike pool leaving from BAB at 5:30pm on the day of the event.

Also, I’m a member of the host committee for the event, so feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
