Bicycling Life Home Page


 







 





We intend this site to focus on the Good

News about Bicycling as a means of transportation and recreation in everyday life.





Edlin’s Crank
An exquisite study by our favorite artist, Taliah
Lempert
 
(Used with
permission)
 



Like Edlin, who’s crank appears above, you may not have a racing bike
(regardless of the pretentious logo), but if you have a bike, any bike,
you can join the human race instead of the rat race.  A quiet evening
ride or a trip to the store does not require a $2000 bike.  




Many

bicycle web sites are “event” oriented. Lots are interested on races or racers.

Most are seasonally oriented, and a few are advocacy oriented. We are not disinterested in

these things.  We are simply more interested in the promotion of cycling as a

“normal” means of transportation for every day travel needs as well as

recreation and healthy exercise.












We also want to counter all the fear mongering, intentional and

unintentional, that happens when bicycling is discussed.  

Sometimes cycling enthusiasts are their own worst enemy.

 It starts when fairly

competent cyclists start lobbying for bike paths and bike lanes at local public

meetings.  It ends with school districts banning bicycles as a means of

transportation, or with local road closures because elected officials are afraid of

liability.

We like to cover issues of  media

bias, faulty reasoning, and misinformation.  We hope by pointing a finger at these

things you will be able to recognize falsehood when you see it, and have a ready answer

when someone asks why you ride a bike.

But we also intend to cover the good news about cycling, the health aspects, the pure

enjoyment, the cost benefits, both to the rider and the community.

Please take our comprehensive on-line survey and encourage your friends to do the same.

Help us get the facts on cycling!

Review
the Results!

We want to show that the bicycle is not only a reasonable means of transportation, but,

in the majority of instances, the method best suited for personal needs. 



Crank and Hub Answer your Bicycle Questions


Now don’t assume we are just a bunch of Anti-Automobile bigots running off at the

mouth.
  We all drive.  When necessary.  It’s just that we have found that

the definition of “Necessary” varies dramatically from person to person, from

time to time. Biking is a lot more fun.


So come on in, snoop around and tell us what you think.

2019 Annual Report on RTC’s Operations and Technology Program

The program known as Vancouver Area Smart Trek (VAST) is a partnership of transportation agencies in the Clark County region established to improve transportation system operations and performance through the use of smart technology and the system and communications infrastructure needed to support it. The VAST agencies, made up of WSDOT, Clark County, City of Vancouver, C-TRAN, and RTC collaborate on signal systems, freeway and arterial management, traveler information, and transit signal priority projects.
