Welcome - my name is Kevin Klinkenberg, and this site "The Messy City" is my blog and company website. I started blogging on urban planning and design issues in 2007, and began working in the field in 1993. Please feel free to connect with me on any of the social media sites listed here. Thanks for reading.

For those of you into Twitter, Zachary Shahan gives a rundown of a fun thread that flips anti-bike arguments around: #replacebikewithcar. Some examples:

The business I went to didn't offer parking so I had to chain my car to a street pole #ReplaceBikeWithCar

There's a pole at the intersection, drivers can get out of the car and push the button when they want green light. #ReplaceBikeWithCar

Driving to work sounds nice but it just isn't realistic. What if there's snow and ice on the roads? #ReplaceBikeWithCar

Woman arrested after three children found locked in hot bike. #ReplaceBikeWithCar

Give it a go.
