Dangerously organic!

Active Streets Gainesville, an event that focused on active transportation happened last weekend. University Ave was shut down to autos for several blocks near Main Street. People rode bikes, skateboards, and walked around enjoying the moment with no automobile traffic. 

Gainesville, FL is the home of University of Florida and has a population of about 100,000, half of which are students. There are loads of bicycle riders. Gainesville is trying its best to be bike friendly. There are designated bike lanes and paths scattered all over town. The aim is to become even more bike friendly, and this event got lots of support from both the city and the state.

Here's a video that shows the kind of fun that was had:

And, here are a few photos of creative ways some folks dressed up their bikes. Thanks to Bob Zulu for the photos and the heads up about the video!



Stay tuned as this article evolves and surf over to these couple of excellent articles for more info: The Alligator and the Gainesville Sun both covered the event.
