Found this Giant advertisement while trolling the web this morning and happened to wander over to Streetsblog. I concur with Streetsblog: Good idea, although I cautioned Streetsblog readers about slinging grocery bags over their handlebars, esp. in traffic! I could quibble about some of the lane positioning too, but lets allow a bit of artistic license for now rather than seeming too grouchy.
The video below was copied from Youtube, so I could edit the frame size.
Now, can we bring this idea to the States?
In another tidbit from Streetsblog, here is a video of Ron Paul discussing Federal highway funding vs transit. Interesting.
And for yet another reality. Warning. Don't listen to this if the F bomb offends you.
