SFBG helps pave the way
Pick yourself up a copy (or read it online) of the San Francisco Bay Guardian's 42nd anniversary issue that focuses on sustainable cities. Look beyond the beautiful cover art featuring a lovely cyclist and check out the bundle of articles that analyze and redefine the buzzword du jour, sustainability. Of particular interest to us here at Vélo Vogue and our readers is the article "Beyond the Automobile." The author presents some great research, and makes some pointed statements about what a more liveable city will look like, such as, "People will drive less, but will they have dignified alternatives?"
Check it out for yourself, and let us know what you think! And in the meantime, get out on your bike and enjoy this fine Indian Summer weather we're having.
