Bike Lanes Are White Lanes: Bicycle Advocacy and Urban Planning

Bike Lanes Are White Lanes: Bicycle Advocacy and Urban Planning
@ The number of bicyclists is increasing in the United States, especially among the working class and people of color. In contrast to the demographics of bicyclists in the United States, advocacy for bicycling has focused mainly on the interests of white upwardly mobile bicyclists, leading to neighborhood conflicts and accusations of racist planning.

In Bike Lanes Are White Lanes, scholar Melody L. Hoffmann argues that the bicycle has varied cultural meaning as a “rolling signifier.” That is, the bicycle’s meaning changes in different spaces, with different people, and in different cultures. The rolling signification of the bicycle contributes to building community, influences gentrifying urban planning, and upholds systemic race and class barriers.

In this study of three prominent U.S. cities—Milwaukee, Portland, and Minneapolis—Hoffmann examines how the burgeoning popularity of urban bicycling is trailed by systemic issues of racism, classism, and di

    Great headlamp built here in the U.S. of A.!!, November 18, 2013

    This is a very bright light at its highest setting and has 4 other solid lighting levels with 2 ‘blinking’ or SOS modes. At its lowest setting “reading mode”, it is great to just have sitting in the tent as you’re getting ready for bed, or waking up for that middle-of-the-night pee we all hate in 20 deg temps! My main use, and daily use, is heading out to the barns for late night animal tending. I typically use the medium level for my chores with the occasional bump up to high when a cat tries sneaking up behind me!

    I used an adapter to charge this light from a wall outlet, instead of the USB from a computer, and it takes only a few hours to go to full level and once fully charged, I am amazed at the length of use.

    Solid light housing, easy to find button (even with gloves on), and long battery life. Well worth the money over the cheapos. Oh, BIG PLUS, it’s made in the USA!

    –“We are proud to say that we haven’t shipped our jobs offshore either. Our engineers, production teams, sales, accounting, shipping and receiving teams all reside in the same building, so you can rest assured that all your Light & Motion products are 100% built in the U.S.A. “–

    This light is very bright at its highest setting. The battery lasts for a long time too which is surprising given how little it weighs. The headband is quite comfortable compared to cheaper headlamps. the lamp does get quite warm after extended use at highest output, but that heat seemed to be dissipated before getting to my skin. The low weight makes it fairly comfortable to wear for a couple of hours at a time. It is of significantly higher quality than the cheaper headbands with lower intensity. The only drawback is that it does not seem to have a red LED mode for using in total darkness when you really want minimal lighting to preserve night vision. I also managed to drain the battery in my bag a couple of times since i did not know how to lock the button. It is great that it detaches from the headband so you can use it like a handheld flashlight. Very worthwhile investment for my purposes.
