After nearly four years of effort by Bicycle Access Council, a Share-The-Road vehicle registration plate became official and made available on August 8.  An order form is up on PennDOT’s website now—Form MV-917.  The cost of the plate is $40.  A personalized plate will add a fee of $100 in addition to the $40 plate cost.  All details are included on the form, which can be found at: http://tinyurl.com/za2bua2

Transportation Demand Management uses strategies and policies that seek to address issues of congestion by reducing demand of travel rather than increasing the supply of the existing road network.

Today's Tip

Seat Fore-And-Aft Adjustment Is Important, Too - For optimum comfort and pedaling efficiency, your saddle must be properly positioned over the pedals. When your crankarms and pedals are parallel to the ground, a plumb line dropped from the bony protrusion just below your knee should be either directly over, or 1-2 centimeters behind the pedal axle (on the forward crankarm). This setting varies according to personal preference and riding position. For example, if you are a spinner and like to pedal at high cadences (95 rpm plus), place the plumb line directly over the pedal axle. If you pedal at a slower cadence (80 to 90 rpm), you may find that you prefer a rearward position better. This is a tricky thing to determine and adjust without help. If you feel you need advice regarding bike fit, please call us or come in soon.
