Re: off the grid
Of course Hazel, I think Love is at the core of almost everything. And with that we can make everything possible and keep going "fighting the good fight" and that sorf of things that improve us.

Re: Social Bicycles in Florida
@Nicole,

This is why I think that, even in small numbers, if the program starts getting slowly implemented, obtaining feedback on what works and what doesn't, it'll start getting wider acceptance.

I know that even local schools and communities would support the program since it really does solve transportation needs, aside from simply having cleaner air. So I'm very eagered to see how things go here in Orlando (if I here anything, I'll keep the comunity posted)

Re: Social Bicycles in Florida
Thanks for the link, mejiac. It would be interesting to see how this plays out with time and if ever the program picks up. I definitely hope that it'll take off--it sounds like just the thing so many people need over there.

Well-said, Lesthertod. You know what they say about loving yourself before being able to love someone else. That sort of philosophy applies to so many other things in life.

Re: Moreover, AZ is flat! Phew
I'm all for bike share programs and initiatives, but I think people who are interested in taking part should adhere to the guidelines and pay more attention to safeguarding their well-being, too. This is one of the reasons why some people oppose bike share programs.

Re: Social Bicycles in Florida
Thanks for sharing, mejiac. I am really eager to hear how well Social Bicycles works once it begins to be rolled out in cities like Phoenix and Orlando. I was telling Ryan, the founder, that it would be a great add-on to the system in New York, too, since some areas (like my direct neighborhood) aren't yet serviced by the bike stations. There are no plans for Social Bicycles to come to NYC, but I think it could fulfill a need, if it works well enough.

Re: off the grid
Thanks, I believe that it is indeed the core of well-being. A happy/fulfilled individual is able to contribute much more and of course work towards a better group functioning.

Social Bicycles in Florida
Just wanted to share with the community an interesting article about the bike share program trying to be implemented in Orlando Florida. Here's the link

I live in the UCF area, so I know many students will greatly benefit for having bikes availbale to travel within the campus area and surrounding.

Also, there are many areas around the city that, because of the theme parks, can definitly be a welcome for the bike programs.

Oh, Yes...I've seen my share of near misses with riders approaching oncoming traffic illegally! I'm thinking city messengers on bikes must have difficulty obtaining life  insurance.

Re: Moreover, AZ is flat! Phew
Now that it's much more common to have bikes on the road in cities, it's definitely a must that cyclists ride with traffic. Otherwise collisions are all too likely. (That said, I see plenty of riders just disregarding that rule - wish they wouldn't!)
