Okay, so I don't have an actual picture since it's dark (and if I did, it would be lousy anyway), but take off your Literal Hat for a minute and stay with me.
Per today's Des Moines Register ("Lining Iowa Birdcages Since 1915"), the Ingersoll bike lanes are staying put. For those who aren't stalking me, Ingersoll and its wonderful bike lanes pass directly in front of The Cycle World Headquarters. Huzzah!
You may recall that not too long ago, I (selectively) encouraged my reader(s) to participate in a poll about the bike lanes. I can only assume that the groundswell of support that poured in from this very blog led to their preservation. So thank you, thank you all! (And note that in honor of World Standards Day, I am using the widely accepted definition of a groundswell: four click-throughs.)
Who says that expressing anonymous, possibly unfounded, and obviously self-serving opinions on the Internet can't make a difference?
