Hanna biked on over to City Hall for last week's Dallas Bike Plan meeting, the second and final public forum before the formal unveiling of the draft plan to the council during Cyclesomatic 2010 next month. But in the meantime, I went over to the bike plan website earlier today, because that's how I roll, and noticed the long-awaited (well, to me, anyway) results of the public survey have been posted.

More than 1,400 folks responded to the online Q&A, which covered everything from why folks ride their bicycles to, well, why they don't. "Fear of crime." My least favorite Talking Heads record. Hit it, ladies.
