Mostly, I think all Chattanoogans need to start considering our city a bicycle friendly community. The more we adopt the moniker, the more people will start to cycle on the streets and the more attention cycling will receive. All of this two-wheeled forward motion can lead to fixing some of the "problems" that many cyclists complain about — including poor road conditions, poor driver-cyclist relations and not enough "fun" non-racing cycling events. This recognition from Bicycling Magazineis a welcome display of how far the cycling community has come in Chattanooga, and I hope it only spurs more growth.
I also would like to extend an invitation to all cyclists to attend the local ride, 3 Rides, 3 Hoods: Perspectives on the City, on May 2.

SALT LAKE CITY — Light rail someday will shuttle passengers from the airport to Daybreak, while streetcars run through downtown and Sugar House.
But the most "exciting" transportation efforts being made in Utah's capital city still involve 10-speeds and spinning spokes, says Mayor Ralph Becker.
"The valley itself is relatively flat. We've got wide streets. We have a relatively good climate … and an enormous opportunity to achieve being one of the most bikeable cities in the country," Becker said.
When it comes to funding bicycle projects, Becker sees a "chicken-and-egg" problem. Without improvements, many potential cyclists are too afraid to take to the streets — and the lack of cyclists causes some to wonder if it's worth the cost.
But even in the face of substantial budget cuts — possibly as large as $20 million — bicycles remain a priority for the mayor and his administration.
