    Update: Nick Popa of Columbus Mobility Department presented the plans for SR161 (Linworth to Sawmill) North sidepath. Korda engineers explained it in detail. Audience comments were on North side vs South side, but no one was against the connector overall. Project would be completed in 2015.

    street lighting
    • Incorporating gateway features next to railroads viaducts on Rich
    and Town streets

    Mobility Options and its consulting team on September 5 to

    Let us know how this turns out Jody. I prolly won’t make it. There seems a movement, national and beyond, for coming to our cycling senses. I say this based on time spent recently in Charlotte, NYC, Chicago, DC, and maybe a couple other places where there are more and more sharrows and bike lanes.

    But cycling is part of a broader process of rediscovering and inventing a variety of human-powered machines, which likely are at least part of the solution—if there is one—to our ecological crisis. I envision people-powered rail vehicles for transport of some goods and services, as well as people-powered water craft.

    Fellow solutionaries, how about long distance human powered air craft? I’m drawing a blank on that one.

    But how feasible might human powered aircraft be for traveling distances such as 10, 20 or 50 kilometers, not to mention only 1 km ? For that, pedicycles, human-powered rail and human-powered watercraft seem much more feasible, according to my guesses.
