Cycling Through an American Town

by Michael Ayers

If you enjoy bicycling, and are concerned about the future in this era of increasing spawl, gridlock, and resource depletion, then sit back, relax, and enjoy the following three short stories. On the other hand, if you think that all we need to do is build a few more freeways, then perhaps you should look somewhere else.

The Tortoise Dreamt of a World Wothout Hares

The Day the Automobile Went Extinct

A Bike Ride a Day Keeps the Doctor Away

The second and third of these stories also appear as "Remembering Tommorrow" in Richard Risemberg's amazingly interesting Webzine, The Living Room, which includes The Bike People, Sustainability, and The Suburbia Project. Ride on over and check it out.

Send me some mail ; Then go out for a ride!
