Things have been busy as ever in Bicycle City as we
work to spread the word about our upcoming community and prepare to make
Bicycle City the best eco-friendly, car-free community the world has ever
In June, Bicycle City was a proud presenter, sponsor and exhibitor at Towards Car-free Cities VIII in
Portland, Oregon. Bicycle City’s Joe Mellett presented The Road to
Bicycle City as part of the Advocating for Carfree Development
Also in June, Bicycle City sponsored and exhibited at the Ohio River Way Paddlefest
in Cincinnati, Ohio, and just last weekend, we were at the Humane Society
of the United States’ Taking
Action for Animals conference in Arlington, Virginia, as a sponsor and
Bicycle City welcomed two advisors to our team. Anne Lusk, of the Harvard
School of Public Health, has a Ph.D. in architecture and more than 25
years experience studying cycling and multi-use paths. Ward Allebach,
adjunct professor of environmental studies at the University of
Pittsburgh, has a master’s degree in environmental studies and was the
founder of two environmental organizations in southern California. You
can read more about Anne and Ward on our About Bicycle City page.
We’ve also been busy making changes to our website. We’ve added lots of
new content about our plans, and our front page was redesigned to make
that content easier to find. Our site now features all the great comments people are leaving us and
a new blog, which also features videos
we’re capturing as we travel the country.
In the midst of these changes has come a sweep of traffic. Our visitors
shot up from 50,025 in April to 98,775 in May, all the way to just over
145,000 in June. We can’t wait to see how many excited web users visit us
in July! So far, 847 people have told us they want to live in Bicycle
City and 512 want to visit. How do you feel?
