The European Cyclists' Federation and UN-Habitat have committed to advocating for bicycling as a means of transportation (not just a recreational tool). Exciting!

"This agreement engages both parties to advocate for better recognition within city plans and policies of the importance and benefits of cycling as a mode of transport and will collaborate through sharing expertise to achieve a mutual goal of improving urban mobility patterns worldwide."

Still trying to figure out whether or not Tucson's Bike Boulevards should be renamed something else. In London they are going with 'Quietways'. Thoughts?! Soon we'll be sharing the results of our survey in which over 500 people weighed in on what to call them.
