It’s been nine weeks since the presidential election, and Davisites are still riding a wave of activist momentum that has attracted hundreds to a call for action.

On Sunday, more than 150 residents gathered to discuss how to protect environmental gains from a feared assault by Donald Trump’s administration, filling the wooden pews at Davis Community Church. 

Words like “unsettled,” “unsafe” and “disoriented” hung heavy in the air.

I typically use the last column of the year to sum up progress, or the lack of it, in reducing greenhouse-gas emissions. This year there’s so much to say, perhaps summed up as “elections have consequences.” Future columns will talk about this as words fade away and actions take center stage.

For now, let’s look at the numbers.

The Bike Campaign: For Maria the Only Way to Go Is by Bike!

Bike Campaign Maria Tebbutt

December 20, 2016

By Judy Moores

Cool Davis welcomes The Bike Campaign and Bike Garage as our newest Partner!

Founder and director Maria Contreras Tebbutt wants to reduce car trips and increase bike safety. It’s that simple. She encourages everyone who possibly can to take up bike riding.

As part of The Bike Campaign program, Maria first makes sure that a bike is road worthy and “street legal,” that is, it meets state code for bikes. She also wants to be sure the bike is correctly fitted for the rider. And last but not least, she wants the rider to know the rules of the road and how to ride safely.
