You Can Keep Your ‘Alternative’ Transportation

Monday’s Quote

Referring to walking and bicycling as “alternative transportation” is akin to labeling a woman as an “alternative man”.

–A Dan Burden Twitter post.


What’s alternative about self-powered mobility?

The true alternative creature is how we, as a culture, have so quickly come to view motorized travel as more ‘normal’ than walking.

We are all pedestrians. Accept Embrace it.

    Great quotation! As someone who eats mainly alternative food (grown without poisons) and drinks alternative beer (brewed with water, barley & hops), it’s nice to read something like this.
