UPS, Police get on the bike!

Wouldn’t you love to see UPS offer bike delivery in your town?

Or, do they already? I’ve heard to Christmas trees delivered by bicycle. Wouldn’t our brown outfitted friends be happier, healthier, freed from their big brown metal boxes?

And, wouldn’t you like to see more police getting to know their community via bicycle? The best police officers are likely those who know their community from the inside out, not the outside in—instead of intimidating their community from safe-seeming, separating, ominious and polluting squad cars…they’re right there, with us, getting to know us—and us, them.

Trust and freindship builds a truly safer community.

And, while we’re at it, a green one.
