Sunday Summary – August 24, 2014

Important ideas, political edition:  Seeing Minneapolis with the NCSL Bipartisan Bike Ride took state legislators for a ride.  Let’s hope the bikes-eye view of Minneapolis cycle infrastructure sparks interest in building better bike infrastructure (and appropriating sufficient funds to do it).  Writing your state legislators to follow-up on this post is a great (hot) Sunday afternoon activity.

Important ideas, technical edition: Saint Paul’s New Street Design Manual is a detailed (with page number references!) review and analysis of the manual (plus a cartoon).
