Bike Culture in Sacramento?
With "May is Bike Month" now behind us, I feel that Sacramento has really started to establish itself with a bike culture. So where do we go from here? What else do we need to do to keep bike culture alive and kicking until next May? I am eager to keep the buzz going.
I've notice Copenhagenize.com has a page that lists 18 ways to know you have bike culture: http://www.copenhagenize.com/2007/11/18-ways-to-know-that-you-have-bicycle.html
If we were to create such a list in Sacramento, what would it say? I am interested in the discussion that this could create. So I put the challenge to everyone out there to attempt to answer the following questions: What is making bike culture in Sacramento today? If we have not gone far enough, what should we be doing to make bike culture in Sacramento? What should Sacramento do to establish itself as a "gold level" bike friendly city?
