successes in bike culture

A couple of feel-good stories about biking have popped up recently. They are good reading in preparation for World Carfree Day on September 22. Hopefully they brighten your day a little.

In Cape Town, a cyclist won a cross-town, rush hour race against the Mayor's limosine in a test to prove the efficiencies of urban cycling.

The Christian Science Monitor reports on how the cycling community has won public approval in events like Critical Mass and support for improved cycling infrastructure. Thanks to the efforts of the San Fransisco Bicycle Coalition, cyclists have moved beyond the bad image that plagued early Critical Mass rides.
