A classic: How fast could you travel across the U.S. in the 1800s and 1930.

“In the 1800 traveling a few hundred miles across the U.S. meant taking a steam-powered train, and the trip could take days. Going from coast to coast, which now takes less than a day, could take weeks. These maps from the 1932 Atlas of the Historical Geography of the United States show the progress of technology in the 19th and early 20th century, significantly reducing travel times. All the maps use New York City as a starting point on the East Coast, and show how long it would take to move westward across the country.”

Map 1, 1800: It took a whole day to barely get outside of the city; two weeks to reach Georgia or Ohio; and in five weeks, you could just about get to Illinois and Louisiana.

Map 2, 1830: About 30 years later, train travel in the U.S. was almost twice as fast, but still quite slow by modern standards. Rather than taking two weeks, going to Georgia or Ohio from New York City took one week, and in two you could get to the state borders of Louisiana, Arkansas and Illinois. Getting to Minnesota would have taken about five weeks!

Map 3, 1857: You could now do in a day or two what used to take a couple weeks. With a week's travel you could get to the eastern border of Texas, and in about four weeks you could get to California. Only the Northwest took longer than a month to reach from New York City.

Map 4, 1930: It now only takes two days to get across half the United states by train, and three to four days to get to the other coast from New York City. It's hard to overstate how big a difference this makes in how people perceive the world.

Friends, I know it’s summertime, and July is traditionally a time when we think about vacations, sunshine, and the beach, but for me July also represents a different period of time in my life. It is the anniversary of my Dad taking his own life.

Mental health awareness has made huge gains in the last 5 years in terms of our openness to talk about this issue, and I embrace the opportunity to share my story publicly as often as I can. I believe mental health challenges like depression can be overcome, but to do so we need to keep the discussion going.

Thank you to everyone who came to our first BSL workshop yesterday! Here, the group are practising sign language for modes of transport 🚂

"Apart from cycling, I am an amateur photographer. Working behind the camera has taught me the importance of patience and perseverance. I remember waking up in the dark and the cold of a Boston winter every morning for two weeks just to get the perfect shot of the sunrise. It is the same perseverance that cycling needs as well. It is this perseverance that fuels me to wake up at 3:30 AM on Sunday mornings and head out to practice. All the fear, of landslides and geography, is just part of the adventure. As cyclists on the first inclusive expedition ever, we don’t even need superpowers. We just need to remind ourselves to live in the moment and soak in the experience. That is what I am out to do."

How is it that the U.S. have had a National Disabilities Act Since 1994 but Canada doesn't? #CDA #politics #Federal #canada #accessibility #canada150 #helpingpeopletolive

So many people move out of the city as soon as they have kids. We're working to make it more accessible and family friendly so that staying is a more attractive and viable option!
