bikescape's fifth bike to work day and a rally for transit

Another year goes by and another bigger and better Bike to Work Day beats expectations. We visit the San Francisco City College Campus and chat with Gus from The Bikery. Then we bike across town to hand out goodies at the Chinatown energizer station where we meet San Francisco's only car-free supervisor, Board President David Chiu.

But its not all about bikes! It seems that across the nation, just when transit use is unprecedentedly high, fares are going up and service is getting cut. We go to protest SF's transit budget and meet with Supervisor John Avalos as we walk to confront MTA Director Nat Ford.

Also, we've got lots of news about upcoming events such as Sunday Streets in the Mission. I dropped in som audio from the last Sunday Streets event where we encountered the piano bike.

Love the show. They really should keep transit going through the downturn. It's a great opportunity to increase and retain ridership.

I think you should interview Laura and Russ in Long Beach. They are selling their worldly posessions and going for an epic(urean) bike ride!
