Biking around the world

The State We're In is a weekly NPR program "about human rights and human wrongs." This week's program is about bikes: The right to bike. "We compare bike life in two cities: San Francisco and Amsterdam. We talk to a man from Uganda whose bike made the difference between life and death and we hear from a committed cyclist in Manhattan who lost twenty bikes to thieves and reached a point where he became one himself."

From the Amsterdam segment: "Every self-respecting city in the world will have it's centers car-free by 2015. It seems quick but I promise you it's going to happen. Everybody's working on it, everybody sees the benefit." (Pascal van den Noort, Executive Director of Velo Mondial)
