  Note that they are having a "conference":http://www.bikewalk.org/PWPB2004/history.htm in September 2004 in Vancouver, BC. The National Center for Bicycling & Walking (NCBW) is the major program of the Bicycle Federation of America, Inc. (BFA), a national, nonprofit [501(c)(3)] corporation established in 1977. Our mission is to create bicycle-friendly and walkable communities. The NCBW is not a membership organization; our revenue comes from grants, contracts, and consulting fees. In 2001, the NCBW was awarded a multi-year grant from The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) to provide information and resources to communities and professionals working to create more activity-friendly communities. This program is referred to as Active Living's Technical Assistance Center, or ALTAC for short. The grant is part of RWJF's efforts to provide improved opportunities for Americans to be physically active on a daily basis in the communities where they live and work. It is the largest grant ever awarded to the National Center for Bicycling & Walking. Ongoing NCBW activities include: * providing specialized consulting services in the areas of long-range planning, policy development, public involvement, route selection, planning and design guidelines for bicycle and pedestrian facilities * training programs for public health and transportation agencies * economic development and tourism planning and analysis * organizing and managing workshops and conferences, including the biennial Pro Bike / Pro Walk conference. In addition, we produce CenterLines, our bi-weekly electronic news bulletin, as well as the quarterly NCBW Forum. All of our publications and programs are supplemented by our comprensive web site (www.bikewalk.org), supporting the efforts of individuals and organizations working on bicycling and walking initiatives. Finally, the NCBW works with local, state, and national bicycle, pedestrian, and transportation advocates to bring about changes in government policies, programs, and procedures to help create more bicycle friendly and walkable communities.
Link carsharing remote url Link 2004-05-30 2004-05-30
  Something about carsharing on carfreeuniverse? I think I might resign. Here's some links: "The World CarShare Consortium":http://ecoplan.org/carshare/ (look in the menu for "what is carsharing":http://ecoplan.org/carshare/general/basics.htm? for an explanation) "Google":http://www.google.com/search?q=carsharing "carsharing.net":http://www.carsharing.net/ I'm putting this under "transitioning to carfree" though I'm not sure if that fits...

  1. Go to new jersey via path and take commuter rail to tuxedo park and find the trailhead to harriman state park (across a footbridge across the river) 2. A two hour ride on the LIRR to Fire Island... I haven't done this one but wish I had.

  This is an example of a visual meant to create awareness of and demand for the carfree ideal... propaganda, marketing, visionary art, however you wish to call it. This was designed with creating a compelling display for a greenfestival in mind. Costs for printing things like this can be expensive... Not to mention actually figuring out how to make the poster and produce a reasonable-quality large-scale print... I'd put some text like website urls in the lower right. The basic Idea was copied from the andy singer cartoon on the front of http://carfreecity.us... the full version of that cartoon has a quip about dividing the city into driving and non-driving sections... I saw that cartoon online somewhere. (In carfree seattle's "your guide to going carfree" http://www.thinksmall.org/car-free/ ) Thanks to Joel Crawford's carfree.com for the following images: o http://www.carfree.com/cpix/9usa0125.jpg o http://www.carfree.com/cpix/7ven2322.jpg o and the reference district Thanks (did not ask permission) to http://jenniferyork.com/images5/cloverleaf.jpg for the cloverleaf. Incidentally, Joel's cloverleaf city plan (http://www.carfree.com/zzz_about.html) might be a better image for the lower right. I made it on a mac using adobe illustrator which so far has worked very well and it was easy to do. Dimensions of the poster are 24" x 36". This should cost under $15 to print on photo satin paper at 300 dpi (or maybe it was higher?).

  Markus Heller has a thorough awareness of actual carfree development. The Germans appear to be leading the way in reclaiming cities from the auto on a large scale. I earlier linked to "Marcus' Autofrei leben in Europa presentation":http://www.sujet.de/sign/projekte/autofrei/projektautofrei_fr.html.

  Please give feedback. Made using adobe InDesign. Advertises carfree.com, carfreecity.us, worldcarfree.net, and carfreeuniverse.org. For best results, do **not** "scale to fit" when printing, unless your printer cannot print to within .25 inches of page edge. The resulting cards should be 2 x 3.5 inches. The outer .25 inches of the guidelines will (probably) be cropped when printing. I've modified the character tracking, prompted initially by a huge gap between i & v in carfreeuniverse. Perhaps I went too far the other way. Here is the version "without cut lines":../businesscards002.pdf/image_view.
Image business cards black & white no cut lines 130kb Image 2004-06-04 2008-03-05
  Same as the "other":../businesscards001.pdf/image_view, but no lines (preferred when printing & cutting professionally). Note that campus print shops can be *much* cheaper than kinkos. Note that it is best to submit all files digitally (email or online)... most every print shop lets you do this now. They also have auto-cutting and folding machines (for flyers).

  David Ceaser and Patty Santos made this on powerpoint. Don't try to do this with powerpoint. Future CFC brochures will not be made on powerpoint... They will be made with adobe inDesign or the open source "Scribus":http://www.scribus.net/ running on linux, mac w/ "fink":http://fink.sourceforge.net/, or windows with "KDE-cygwin":http://ahnews.music.salford.ac.uk/scribus/documentation/cygwin.html. Do you have other suggestions?

Link How to travel by train & ship... remote url Link 2004-06-10 2004-06-24
  This site is a treasure for "ecotravellers":http://lists.riseup.net/www/info/ecotravel. I discovered it when looking for an overland route to Thailand. <blockquote> Maybe you don't like flying. Or perhaps you just prefer classic travel by express train and ocean liner, where you eat in a restaurant, sleep in a bed, and get to see where you're going... This website will tell you how to travel comfortably by train or ship for many journeys where you might think that air was now the only option.</blockquote>
