    9-22-09, World Carfree Day!

    From the website:

    Every September 22, people from around the world get together in the streets, intersections, and neighbourhood blocks to remind the world that we don't have to accept our car-dominated society.

    But we do not want just one day of celebration and then a return to "normal" life. When people get out of their cars, they should stay out of their cars. It is up to us, it is up to our cities, and our governments to help create permanent change to benefit pedestrians, cyclists, and other people who do not drive cars.

    Let World Carfree Day be a showcase for just how our cities might look like, feel like, and sound like without cars…365 days a year.

    As the climate heats up, World Carfree Day is the perfect time to take the heat off the planet, and put it on city planners and politicians to give priority to cycling, walking and public transport, instead of to the automobile.

    So take the time, browse the links and resources provided, and join in on the celebrations!

    I couldn't figure out how to add LCF on their resources pages, but I did add it to the wikipedia's external links section ..although if I remember correctly I did the same thing last year. Someone we got edited out.

    What are you doing on 9-22-2009?

    I'll probably ride down to the local grocery store and pick up a case of Fat Tire beer.

    Looks like it's going to be a typical day for me, get on the bike, go to work, and after work, I'll probably ride around town doing some errands.

    From the Article:

    World Carfree Day is an annual celebration of cities and public life, free from the noise, stress and pollution of cars. Each year on September 22, people around the world organize events of all sizes to showcase alternatives to the automobile. World Carfree Network invites organisations and individuals everywhere to join! <<<<<<<

    I hope this year it gets more exposure than a 5 second spot in the news. We should have World CarFree month for an even greater impact!
