I feel we have much to be heartened by in terms of biking. I see more people riding in Chicago than 5, even 2 years ago. Urban sprawl, auto-dependency are being covered in the mainstream media. Not often or well enough, but it's there. I just hope we can stay energized enough to prevent this movement from turning into a fad. If I ever propagate, I hope my grandchildren are glad we whittled away at carcentric culture. There will be a bunch of old timers who still insist on driving everywhere, but it will be considered uncool. Kids will be embarrassed when grandma insists on driving to the store. . . They will duck when riding in the car so their friends won't see them.
