Podcast: Berkeley bikestation controversy, 9th street plans

The city of Berkeley's city manager has abruptly decided to drop support for expanding the downtown BART attended bike parking ("bikestation") in favor of a cardkey-access-only bike cage to be built in the Center Street garage -- an option opposed by most bicyclists. The controversy came to a head last night at the Berkeley Transportation Commission's bike subcommittee meeting. I recorded it in its entirety. The matter is agendized as an information item at next Monday's city council meeting. Also discussed during the bike subcommittee meeting are plans to complete the 9th St. bike corridor past the new Berkeley Bowl site in West Berkeley. Listen. (2:20:20, 67MB)

Bicycling my daughter to school yesterday, I told her to watch for an American flag, as it would indicate a polling place. Although we passed several likely locations, we saw no flags, until, just before we arrived at her school, she pointed out a flag on a city garbage truck! Fortunately I was able to convince her that ballots weren't being deposited there.
