"I'm probably in the minority opinion on this, but I'm not looking forward to the plastic grocery bag ban coming this year.  Shopping for me is often spur-of-the-moment, so how am I supposed to get my groceries home when I haven't…"

"Before I knew who sponsored it, I thought this was brilliant! "Smart" does not immediately make me think of a car company. But Copenhagenize has a lot of good point. If a car company is gonna spend money trying to promote safety, they…"

"Today's short ride does not leave me with confidence for the rest of this winter. Plenty of time has passed since the last snow fell and the streets are still in fair (at best) condition for bikes? Can't they follow up and re-clear lanes…"
