Much like Stephen Box yesterday, it’s kind of a waste of time to write a bio for Joe Linton.  Currently, Linton is an author,
artist and urban environmental activist involved mainly in
transportation and water issues. He currently works for Cyclists
Inciting Change thru Live Exchange C.I.C.L.E. www.cicle.org.

Of course, when it comes to Linton, that’s the tip of the iceberg.  In addition to a career in advocacy that saw him co-found the Bike Coalition, labor for Livable Places and manage last spring’s Bike Summit; Linton still finds time to volunteer as a ride leader, chair the Green L.A. Transportation Working Group, write his own "river blog" Creek Freak and program events for the Eco-Village.  Of course, all of that says nothing about his skills helping to program baby showers.
