came out last week. It's pretty much common sense in my opinion. Hopefully enough people will learn of this study (and read it.) Maybe then, city planners will pull their heads out of their collective asses and build more livable communities. Part of me thinks it's already too late.
This past weekend I rented a car to drive (yeah, yeah; I'm cringing even typing that. Call me a hypocrite, but trust me: this was a valid trip involving celebrating my Mother beating cancer) back to North Dakota for a family function. On the way, we stopped at the Krispy Kreme off of Weaver Lake Road in Maple Grove. Talk about a clusterfuck. This place is one continuous sea of parking lots, big behemoth box stores, and automobile cancor sores. It made me physically ill. The only remedy was to get the hell out of there (no small feat, sorta like Dungeons & Dragons) back onto I-94, and pound the dozen Krispy Kremes. Truly awful development like that makes me want to run off into the wilderness and never come back.
But then I wouldn't be able to remind you to get over to Theodore Wirth this Wednesday for another trail building session with MOCA.
I was over there tonight riding the new Voodoo, and man are there going to be some sweet loops of trail to ride, were talking DEDICATED mountain bike trails. Get out and lend a hand if you can.
