Last night I was introduced to the Pedal Powered Fanatic and his collection of crazy cargo contraptions. I thought you might enjoy them so I took some photos and video with my iPhone.
My mission in the cycling world is to empower individual cyclists to ride with confidence and realize unhindered access to the transportation grid. I believe we can transform our traffic culture, through education and social marketing, into one which recognizes that roads are for all people, not just the ones driving cars.

This can also help us advise business of the need for a rack, better placement, or even reward them for doing it right! I […]
In this video presentation, I explain the root cause of the beliefs that inhibit bicycling in America, why the prevailing strategy can’t fix it, and offer a strategy that can.

The Outspoken Cyclist is a 1-hour radio show with interviews, commentary, ideas, advocacy, and everything (anything) connected with bicycling!

This has been decades in the wanting. Anyone who has tried to cross a street in Orlando knows it can be an exercise in frustration… or worse.
