Along for the Ride - Issue #70

Hi Friends!
Happy Friday. Another week come and gone, and I’m still not fully convinced April ever happened or that it’s truly the middle of May. But thankfully, the news is here and it is signed, sealed and dated and yup, it’s May.
This week’s compilation see many cities starting to put in additional infrastructure for walking and cycling ahead of lockdowns being relaxed. Meanwhile, many companies are marching right along and making some pretty big moves. All over the world automotive factories have started to open too.
So I’m dubbing the theme of this newsletter: the very teeny tiny light at the end of the tunnel*.
* that we shouldn’t take for granted by omitting our social responsibilities of physical distancing.
Onto the news!
