Dear Mayor Gordon,
It is with great hope that we write to you today. We are the people of downtown Phoenix. We are the faithful, the hopeful, the cycleful. And we have a special request for you:
Can you please put in more bike racks?
In case you haven't noticed, we are growing in number. The new light rail has increased our range and we are cycling, even in the heat, to the grocery store, the coffee shops, bars and restaurants, to the library, museum and ballet.
Can you do this for us? Maybe just a few for now with the promise of more to come? We know that you believe in us because you gave us light rail. Which we like. A lot.
If you do this for us, we will try really hard to ride on the correct side of the street.
Your Friends in Downtown Phoenix
