Fashion Friday: The Green Lane to Success

28 Jun

Red may be the power tie color for businessmen, but when you’re the head of the San Jose Department of Transportation, green is the power color to wear as you pave the way to better bicycling in California’s 3rd largest city. A suit doesn’t keep a pro like Hans from getting in on the action. With a roll of the cuff on the bike and a hard hat and high-viz vest for laying paint, Hans stays photo-op ready for his department’s day in the sun.

The first of San Jose’s green lane projects, the Hedding Street bike lane will be a major east-west bikeway.

About Fashion Friday: Inspired by a 2011 Bike to Work Day challenge sponsored by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, this series highlights the broad range of “dress for the destination” bicycling fashions.

Fix The Toaster

Nearly 32,000 Americans die in car crashes annually. 80% of car crashes are PREVENTABLE. If the TOASTER was killing that many people we'd think it was ridiculous. We'd un-plug it and say, let's Fix The Toaster.
