Biking gets plugged on Chronicle, a newsmagazine in Boston

Unfortunately I can't find any video on line. They were featuring information on local farms and one of the farms they visited uses a bicycle delivery service to deliver fresh produce to their customers. The owner of the farm said he likes the idea of an Amsterdam style of commerce being applied in Boston.

Look someone has posted a positive comment about riding bikes!

wow! stuff like that gives me hope for the world

this is good for days when i am cycling 5km to work, and part-way there I see my (perfectly intelligent and educated) friend and colleage at the same workplace, who teaches in the classroom next to me and lives only 2km from that same workplace, driving to work in her car. I pass her, and get there quicker, and we meet in the corridor outside our classrooms. It's difficult to know what to say to her, because we can't just go round telling each other what to do(tempting as it is....), but my heart sinks.

then i see organic farms delivering by pedalvan, and hope shines once again.

thanks for the post, brightened my day
