I just heard an interesting segment on NPR's Marketplace, about how high school students in Cape Town, South Africa don't ride bikes to school because it isn't "cool." Sound familiar? Anyway, a few young cyclists are getting together for moral support, developing an interest in competitive cycling, and even getting together for training rides. So there's a silver lining to this cloud. However, at the start of the show, Kai Ryssdal makes a comment about how cycling is becoming more and more dangerous. I think this deserves a rebuttal. I don't see the show in the NPR archives yet, so no link. Those in Central/Western time zones may still have time to catch the regular broadcast today. Matt O.
