ONE Conference at MSU

The Ozarks New Energy Conference continues today at Plaster Student Union at Missouri State University.

I was a speaker on a panel yesterday about living car-lite in Springfield. The panel included Terry Whaley, executive director of Ozark Greenways; Mike MacPherson, principal planner with the City of Springfield; and Rick Scarlet, member of the STAR Team of Ozark Greenways.

Main points I made:

  1. Riding a bicycle in Springfield’s urban core is a pleasant experience as long as you follow the traffic laws and ride assertively.
  2. The best way to become a transportation bicyclist: Move within easy bicycling distance of your most frequent destinations.
  3. If you can move, you usually can employ the 1-mile Solution.
