Chicago Wig releases its new commuter bag aptly named The People’s Bag. With a tagline that is geared to servicing cyclists, the People’s Bag is lighter because it uses 1000 denier Cordura construction minus the vinyl lining.

The minimalist design allows users to be less conspicuous in traffic but still remain visible with light loops and a 20-inch lime tape, which glows brightly across the bag’s front.

To make each ride more comfortable, there’s more padding for the interchangeable strap and at the integrated back of the bag. Aside from the main compartment, which has 1800 cubic inches of space, there’s a laptop sleeve that you can also use for other items you wish to carry around. There are also 4 pockets inside that allow for tools, pens, tubes and any other things you need with you.

The People’s Bag costs $150.00 …

The Sanitation Department in New York City forwarded a proposal to remove all “ghost bikes” attached to street signs. They stood as a memorial to cyclists killed by cars but with the drafting of the new city plan, they just might be voted to be cleared away.

The victims’ families and friends were devastated upon learning the news. The proposed removal of the ghost bikes also includes bikes that have been abandoned by owners as well as junk bicycles. The inclusion of the junk bikes was spurred by complaints of neighbors as reported by the head of the agency’s cleaning unit, Michael Bellew.

There will be a public hearing on the bike proposal on July 20th at 125 Worth St., Room 819, from 9:30am to 11:30am. Should the proposal pass, implementation will begin in September. Warning stickers will be posted on the bikes to give the owners ample time to rescue the…

1 2 billion spent on bicycling and walking initiatives 300x300   $1.2 Billion spent on Bicycling and Walking Initiatives

In 2008, the government allocated less than $600 million for bicycling and walking projects. Last year, the federal government increased the fund by $400 million as part of the economic recovery program.

Last March, Ray LaHood, President Obama’s transportation secretary, declared a new policy that will give priority to bicycling and walking projects, the same important attention as those of automotive projects. This would apply in future transportation planning sessions and selection of projects, which will be included in the federal budget.

The livability initiative under the Obama’s administration aims to solve transportation concerns that have wrought the nation. The new policy by LaHood is part of a plan that gives citizens more of an alternative to driving. Aside from bicycling and walking, taking buses, streetcars and trains are also included.

A significant increase in bicycling and walking trips from the duration of 1990 to 2009 cannot be ignored. LaHood explains, “Americans…
