So here I am working on some photo's with my back to the computer and then a very unique and familiar voice comes over the noon news - it's Tom talking about cycling :)

Ha! Of course they cut my comments short, but what can you do? Unfortunately, I was taking no photography while riding. I think the video is still up at katu.com somewhere..

and yes, mom's always have eyes in the back of their heads ;))
Very cool! Congrats Tom. I knew two people in the same broadcast because my parents were on the flight from Maui that had an engine go out. They were also interviewed.

I was thinking about this kind of thing when I saw the most recent cross section for the planned new Sellwood bridge but with a twist. They currently plan to more than double the width to 66 feet to include a two cars lanes and a wide cycle friendly sidewalk on each side; a huge improvement over the current set-up.

But with the same set-up they could instead have four traffic lanes a normal raised sidewalk on one side and a raised 2-lane divided cycle-walk (a-la-Johnson Creek Corridor) on the other. I know the locals are opposed to four lanes, but since I think Tacoma needs a revamping, and that the city could find a way to buy off certain affected businesses....

Anyway, as a sometime bicyclist I like the raised bike lanes. I still think having a two lane raised bike lane on one side or the other of the street might make for a better use of space when considering the need for an offset for parked cars, but whatever.
