Bridging the Gap

Representative Earl Blumenauer (D) received some much deserved praise in the Science section of yesterday's New York Times. A passionate bike advocate, Blumenauer has made great progress in the direction of creating more bike friendly communities in his home state of Oregon. As founder of the Cogressional Bike Caucus he has also helped to bridge the partisan gap and bring much needed attention to the rights of cyclists. With the twilight of the automotive age on the horizon, it is forward thinkers such as Blumenauer who will pave the way for a more sustainable future. (photo credit: New York Times)

Many of us have a long weekend coming up ...this might be a good opportunity to write Blumenauer a letter of thanks?
