The weather has finally returned to normal here -- mid 60s -- so I've begun biking to work. One of the benefits of a small town is that there is no traffic, especially after 5:30pm. Not only are the roads wide open, but the major streets are three lanes, so I can pretty much turn a lane into a bike lane -- when there is traffic, the cars stick to the other two lanes. Given this, the city really should just create dedicated bike lanes. But that will never happen. Montgomery is even more behind the times than Philly -- while every other American city is expanding recycling, in Montgomery they eliminated curbside recycling collection to save money (yet, there is still twice a week trash collection). Oh well. It will all be part of my mayoral platform.
