    Bicyclists are reinventing the "Motor City" I grew up in.

    I think it's related to the video at the link he posted. It crashed my browser, though, so I'm not going to check it out any further.

    Say What? I THINK hes referring to the befits of riding in general...
    It was a bit arcane... but i think i got his point.
    Im not going to vote because i think the poll is filled with loaded questions...

    cut-&-paste video link to webpage

    Sorry -- I'm new here. If you cut-and-paste the link precisely it works fine. I just tested it again.

    I was mugged riding my 10-speed summer of 1975 on West Grand BLVD by five youths at the bus stop with 4 adults standing by watching. So this is hopeful if some respect for bikers has developed in the ensuing 36 yrs -- especially involving youth.

    Detroit is part of the problem why we're involved in oil wars. When people begin seeing bicycles as healthy for their bodies and for their community that is a major reinvention of the City -- as far as I'm concerned.

    The quotes are taken from the dialogue in the video at the website.
