Citi Bike in New York City is the largest bike share program in the United States. (Bitstock photo)
Cyclists and pedestrians account for nearly 16 percent of all highway deaths yet receive just 1 percent of safety related funding. The founder of the Congressional Bike Caucus, Oregon Democrat Earl Blumenauer, tells host Steve Curwood that a new Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Act he introduced to Congress could change the priorities.
CURWOOD: From the Jennifer and Ted Stanley Studios in Boston, this is Living on Earth. I’m Steve Curwood. For years in America, the car has been king. As General Motors once put it, “it’s not just your car, it’s your freedom.” But increasingly Americans are finding a new kind of freedom, the freedom from traffic jams and lack of exercise that can be found behind the handlebars of a bicycle. So as driving mileage has dropped by more than eight percent in the past decade, at the same time the proportion of people commuting to work by bike has increased in 85 of 100 of America's largest cities. One of those two-wheel commuters is Oregon Democrat Earl Blumenauer, the founder of the Congressional bike caucus. The Representative recently introduced the Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Act, legislation that he says America badly needs.

From our cycling friend Kat -
I teach 2 Zumba classes each week at Zumba Columbus (www.zumbacolumbus.com). We're located in Kenny Center strip mall, on Kenny Rd, near Henderson Rd. We are in the back corner and have a green neon "Zumba" sign in the window.
1st class is FREE, so give it a try! Open to all ages, fitness level, gender, etc. Wear any comfortable workout clothes and gym shoes. (Change into gym shoes at the studio if it is wet / snowy out, please). Bottled water and snacks are available for purchase for anyone who does not have their own.
I teach: Sunday 12:30 - 1:30 pm (Zumba) This is a great workout, with a mixture of song styles (Salsa, Reggeton, Current Pop / Hip Hop, etc), high energy, great fun & everyone has a great time shakin' our butts!
Monday 5:30 - 6:30 pm (Zumba 4 EveryBody) This class really is for Everyone!!I wear a headset to give some verbal instruction / cues for beginners, and it is lower impact, with less twisting, so it is easier on the joints. Same music, same fun, same booty shaking!
Hope to see more bike folks (and friends of bike folks) trying it out, especially in the cold winter months!

A late-night incident in which Amtrak workers awoke two Portlanders to tell them, incorrectly, that their folding bikes weren't allowed as carry-ons has led the agency to clarify its policy.
Amtrak spokeswoman Vernae Graham said last week that every passenger car in the system allows folding bicycles as carry-on luggage "if they fit the dimensions described in the policy and can fit in the areas designated for carry on baggage or bikes."
The maximum dimensions are 34 inches by 15 inches by 48 inches, as stated in Amtrak's policy. Mass-market folding bikes meet those constraints, Dean Mullin of local shop Clever Cycles said Wednesday.

EduGo has chosen to partner with Asia's Hope to fill a need: provide safe, reliable transportation for children to get to school and give them the push they need to keep their wheels turning.
After visiting some of the family homes in Cambodia in 2012 and then again with his family in 2013, Jeremy Slagle recognized the importance of bicycles and motos to the people of Southeast Asia and what an impact providing these tools can have to a child as he or she seeks to complete their education.
Partnering with one of his clients, Ganola; Jeremy, and owners, Jared McCullough, and Heather Gray decided to do something about it. EduGo was born.
Our first goal is to provide for the annual needs of the children of Asia's Hope. After those needs are met, we hope to partner with other organizations around the world who have the same needs. No matter who we partner with, the goal will be the same: to provide bikes for kids for school.
ABOUT ASIA’S HOPE
Asia's Hope is a multi-denominational, grassroots movement working in Cambodia, Thailand and India to provide quality long-term care for orphaned children at high risk of sexual and economic exploitation.
Each child living at an Asia’s Hope orphan home receives all the benefits of a loving family: shelter, acceptance, medical care, an education, life skills training and most importantly, the transforming power of hope.
We partner with churches, individuals, businesses and community organizations to fund orphan homes and other services geared towards meeting the physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual needs of the children in our care.
We are working hard to provide each child a high quality primary and secondary education, and to help each child transition into adulthood. Some of our children will benefit from a college education, others from vocational training. We are working hard to raise funds and develop programs that will enable us to give each of our children the tools they need to succeed in their culture as adults.
