First Wednesday Traffic: Bicycling an Obvious Solution!

In no small part because of the construction slowing, First Wednesday downtown traffic was at a stand-still by Salem standards!

But you know who and what were able to maneuver and get to where they needed to be?

Yup. Bikes!

One of the bikes is the second pedicab to join the Salem Bike Taxi fleet! Michele Darr and Mark Babson operate them. In the past week I've seen them at the Fair and in the hills of South Salem. They get around! And they can get your friends around!

This Dutch graphic makes the rounds from time to time, and it can hardly be overused.

If more of us biked, there'd be a lot more room on downtown streets!
