Enjoy Memorial Day, I’ll Be Back on Wednesday

I hope everyone enjoys their Memorial Day Weekend.  I’ll be out of town so I hope everyone enjoys the two interviews that will be posting momentarily.  Be well, ride safe, and see you all next week.  In the meantime, NYC Streetsblog will continue to post breaking national news as it happens and S.F. Streetsblog will be sure to cover any breaking news at the state level.
