We're now into the first full week of May, and that means it's National Bike Month, a celebration of transportation and recreation using pedal power.

Fast Lane readers might recall that this past January, I challenged city leaders to raise the bar for bicyclist and pedestrian safety by joining a year-long “Mayors' Challenge for Safer People and Safer Streets.” In March, we launched the Challenge during a Mayors' Summit, and now participants are busy pursuing seven challenge activites designed to make biking and walking safer --and consequently a more realistic transportation option-- in their cities.

Across America, many communities have a full slate of events this month to help people make bicycling a more regular choice for transportation.
