Road Warriors: Public Transit vs. Highway Building

I ran across this in the Creative Loafing. Let's fill the place with cyclists and make a big statement.

Tommy

What's behind metro Atlanta's high-torque transportation tug of war? And how can you gain a little pull?

CL's Political Party returns with panel to answer these and and other questions regarding public transit and road construction.

Wednesday, Dec. 13, 8 p.m. Free, at Dad's Garage in Little Five Points, Atlanta

As you may have read on some of the other posts, we are in a battle with the City of Atlanta to make or keep some of the roads bike friendly. They are consistently narrowing many of the commuting routes in the name of "traffic calming" and effectively squeezing the cyclist out of the picture.

What they don't know is that in the end, we will prevail!!! When gas is $10/gallon, we still won't need for it.
