-The Christian Century published a wonderful article by Elaine Blanchard on Revolutions Bike Co-Op. What you may not know is that Revolutions Bike Co-Op is located in First Congregational church in Memphis, TN. I spoke with the pastor a few years ago and talked about their creative building use and bicycling ministry. I love this church and I love this model!
Speaking of bikes, Minneapolis Community and Technical College is now offering a Bicycle Assembly and Repair Technician! This coupled with the Minnesota State College Southeast Technical and Community College's in Red Wing campus Bicycle Design and Fabrication program I think I am now sending my CV to offer my commencement address services, pro bono.
-Author Angie Schmitt, author of Right of Way, was on WBUR's On Point program talking about pedestrian issues, road safety and general amazingness.
-Metro Transit (the Twin Cities' public transit organization) is offering $1 fares for September and October as a way to entice riders back.
