It's been one Crazy Year!

The stupid Burrard St Bridge:

We need to stop the plans for another highway in East Van:

And in West Van too:

They're already doing the RAV.

All this Olympic Nonsense is worth scrutiny:

There were some pretty cool achievements this year, June's Car-free Commercial Drive Festival was amazing even if the City organised first World Car Free Day was only lukewarm
[thoughawesome concept].

Amazing street hockey too:

Carmen Mills Remembering CM over the years:

NYC CM has been exciting/scary lately:

"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle."

- Ernest Hemingway, By-Line

Have a free wheelin' New Year!

Midnight Bike Rides?

This is reposted from BC indymedia:

Hey there -

Do you have a bike? Do you like riding it? At night? We're trying to get as many people as are interested to start a semi-regular midnight bike ride, and that includes _you_.

Next ride is scheduled for Thursday December 8th, meeting at Grandview Park (Commercial @ Charles st - across from the Havana and Turks) at 11:45 pm, riding at midnight. The goal is to make this happen on the 2nd and last thurs. of every month. Mark you calendar, and tell your beautiful-crazy-bike-loving friends!

Since I don't know who is organising this or how to contact them, I suggest you either just show up or post a comment to the original Indymedia Story, perhaps they will read it there.
