Greek traffic taming
protest in Athens
From another victim of wildfires, London Greek Radio reports that hundreds of bikers braved heavy rainfall last Saturday to join a protest through central Athens. They called on local authorities to create special bike lanes for congested roads in the city center.
Blowing whistles and shouting anti-cager slogans, bikers of all ages said they would mark out bike lanes on the streets themselves if authorities don't respond. The protesters, who organized the rally over the Internet and by text message, also called for new laws allowing them to take their bikes onto the metro and the urban railway network.
