It's Good to Be Here
This Streetfilms production on the National Bike Summit makes me so happy! I can hardly express my gratitude and inspiration for the moment that we live in now. Cycling, and just about every other aspect of sustainability are becoming everyday topics. As a culture, we have a long way to go before we stop the perils of mad consumption, but we're taking strides in the right direction. We are in the midst of a communications revolution and WE are powerful. Networking tools like Facebook, Twitter and the blogosphere connect us with other people and create alliances that even government and big business can't control. I've also learned that civics, participating in local government, gives US a voice and a decision making hand. My most heartfelt thanks to all the cycling advocates that devote their lives to our cause. And a thank you to each and every person that rides a bike(some exceptions. YOU represent a civilized way of transporting people and goods in and around cities.
