I couldn't resist mentioning this attaboy from Kathi Dietholm, of Pro Velo Switzerland, when I explained my reasons for titling this blog Take the Lane.
"Take the Lane ... that's a very successful way to make yourself known on road," she said. "I have to ride (in the middle of the lane), I don't have to hide (up against the curb)."
Yes, that's the idea. We don't hide; we ride.
And this wraps my coverage from Velo-city Global 2012. I have a pile of documents, links to studies, promises of material to be forwarded. As I get it, I will pass it along.
