People I See 4/8/2013
The other night on the way home from work I noticed a guy kneeling by the street with his bike parked on the sidewalk. He was on Bennett, just west of Glenstone, and as I approached, I saw he had a tape measure and was measuring the new bike-lane-to-be. Sure enough, it was Andy. If you check out his blog, you’ll see that he is passionate about urban cycling and making Springfield a better place for pedestrian and transportation cycling.
I stopped to say “hi”, and found that he had determined the new bike lane will meet minimum standards, but no more. Interestingly, as we were standing there in the lane, I noticed a car pass us and continue it’s way down Bennett with it’s right tires just inches from where the white line will be. That’s why when that line gets marked, you’ll see me riding on top of it to force those cars to give me a margin of safety when they pass.
