Today’s Headlines

Featured Headline: I’ve been digging the story of the DIY Cyclists in Mexico City creating 5 km (3.2 miles) of designated bikeways.  Streetsblog.net covered the story on Friday and I’ve gotten a handful of emails directing me to the original story.  Unlike L.A.’s DIY road improvers, the team in Mexico City accomplished their urban faclift in broad daylight.  New signage and road markings on over three miles of roads, total cost: less than $1,000.
