Danielo was on the Opinion page of the Idaho Statesman yesterday. And a fine opinion it was.
A suggestion for local TV news stations: Add another traffic camera to morning reports. On the new camera, show a live view of the traffic on the Boise River Greenbelt! You would be providing a community service, as it would remind commuters that there are other much more pleasant commute options besides the usual single-occupancy, vehicle drive, and it would also demonstrate the beauty of a city treasure — the Greenbelt! You'd be celebrating Boise and encouraging people to make wiser commute decisions.

If you ask 100 people why they choose their transportation, 90 will likely tell you they have no choice. (Or will quickly start rationalizing why something else might work for others, but not for them.) I say the more exposure they have to other options, the more likely they might be to choose one... especially one as pleasant as cycling. (Better yet if they're lucky enough to be on the greenbelt line.)
