Been a fan of Todd's work since 1970. Love that his creativity and curiosity has always moved him forward and he didn't become a cover band of himself.
A recent survey of cyclists on the South Side revealed that 85% of them owned cars. So, there's that. Students really don't count since they are not yet in the job market. Contrast that with the great amount of poverty in Allegheny County, much of it in the suburbs, and the need for transportation for poor people to get and keep jobs. Sure they can get bikes if they have some money, but 2 hour rides each way isn't going to work for them, even if there were safe routes and it never snowed or rained here. Mass public transit that serves the whole population, not just centered on affluent neighborhoods is what is needed. Instead of bike lanes and bike rental centers, we need something that works for lower class residents as well as everyone else. 40 years ago we had a great trolley system that served everybody quite well. This focus on bikes is just fiddling while Rome burns.
