Rachel Smith implores biking advocates to get better data and not feel powerless. Money quote:
If we are really passionate about making our suburbs and our cities bicycle friendly and we want cycling to compete for government funding then we need to create action plans – or a little list – of the things that we can influence & control and ignore the ones we can’t. We can all get involved in collecting data – even if it’s only how much we collectively spend at a local café on our Sunday afternoon family bicycle ride. Because bicycle advocates all have a dream: we all want more people cycling and we all want to see our dreams come true.
