Ideas from Elsewhere: The Bicycle Cellar in Tempe Arizona

Every fencepost and street sign already had a bicycle secured to it.

How to make walking (and using the stairs) fun!

Wouldn’t it be great if a little fun could change people’s action for the better? Well guess what: it can!

I hope you will support that effort.
