Bicycles, Health, and Our Environment

As the SMART (Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit) rail construction continues apace along a 70 mile stretch between Marin and Sonoma County, including an accompanying multi-use path for bicyclists and pedestrians, the San Francisco Bay Guardian last week did some interesting reporting on what bicyclists in that city currently face as their immediate obstacles to safer and more comprehensive bike-friendly roadways, including a feature on trouble spots that the SFMTA needs to address, as well as an interview with San Francisco State professor of geography Jason Henderson, who paints a grim picture of what our continued reliance on automobiles will do to our planet. And, if there ever were an “infamous” bicycle, Amanda Feilding of the UK-based Beckley Foundation, writes about Albert Hoffman and the ongoing therapeutic research with psilocybin and LSD that is seeing a resurgence both in Europe and here at home.
