Following up on the topic of bikenomics this week, I'd like to hear what it means to you. Everyone who contributes a brief comment of their own personal story, data point or other interesting thought on the role of bicycling in the economy, will be entered into a random drawing to win a copy of Elly Blue's zine Bikenomics: How Bicycling Will Save The Economy (If We Let It) and a copy of volume 3 and 4 of her collaborative quarterly zine Taking The Lane (which can also be purchased here). Elly was generous enough to give me a few extra copies of some of her work when I recently visited Portland, and I thought it would be a great opportunity to share them with my own readers.
The winner will be announced next week, and prizes will be given out in person for those in the immediate area, or who can get over to Santa Monica (preferably without a car or personal jet [so we don't disturb the SMO neighbors]). If you would like to contribute to the discussion but exclude your self from the drawing, let me know at the end of your comment.
