Did You Know?

Decades of research shows that expanding roads doesn’t provide lasting congestion relief. More lanes means more traffic.

Submit your haiku for Active Trans’ haiku-palooza

Writing a haiku is easy: five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second, and five syllables in the third. Like this: 

While walking to work
A cat watches from window
Half interested

Here's a submission for the Active Trans Haiku Contest (the author preferred not to be identified).

Bike in silhouette
Red sun rising on water
Peaceful beginning

Here's an entry submitted by Carolyn Martineau. 

As commute routes sprout
Emerald protected lanes
Our bikes dance with glee

Here's an entry by Cheryl Zalenski. 

Chilly fall bike ride
Wakes me up in the morning
Sunshine on my face
