This just came over the wire from my favorite bike blog, BikePortland: US Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood announced a new set of federal transportation recommendations designed to integrate the needs of bicyclists and pedestrians of all ages and abilities into transportation planning.

It's pretty awesome.

US federal transportation policy since the 1950s has been so exclusively about creating more roadways for more motor vehicles that when LaHood calls this set of recommendations a "sea change" he's not exaggerating.

Even though it clearly arises from recession, inflation, and scary, scary peak oil, the sudden burgeoning of attention to bikes as transportation in the US in recent months seems very positive to me.
