    More Progress....

    I see the Morman missionaries biking around here. If Utah has as high a proportion of Mormans as people say, maybe Utahans understand bike transportation better than most Americans?

    OGDEN, Utah (AP) - The Utah Transit Authority is developing a plan for a bicycle transit center at the Salt Lake City FrontRunner station to give commuters an incentive to use their bikes.

    The transit center would give bicyclists who ride the train a place to clean up and store their bikes. The center also could include a bicycle repair shop, bicycle rentals, showers, and biking information such as maps and classes.

    UTA held an open house in Ogden Thursday to discuss the project.

    The center also is being developed by the Utah Department of Transportation and the Salt Lake City Mayor's Bicycle Association.

    A similar bicycle center may be developed for the Ogden station.

    UTA will finalize a plan for the center in March.

    The reason the Mormon missionaries bike is because they are required to. Most of them that I have spoken with, cannot wait to get it over with so they can drive a car again.

    They even have their own bicycles.


    The Missionary Depot

    And the only bike shops that sell neckties as a bicycling accessory.

    A couple of them came barreling down the sidewalk as I was leaving the hardware store today.

    Wish I had something to stick in their spokes (yes, seriously; I'll stop being offended when they stop making their religion my business).

    Jehovah's Witnesses around here ride on bikes. It must suck in the Florida heat with the way they dress. Though I must admit some of them impress me because they are pretty fast even though lack other things a cyclist should do.
