How to Beat High Gas Prices, Without Really Trying

Tulsa, OK---In response to record high gas prices, former Mayoral candidate Paul Tay teaches a two-hour class now available to individuals, businesses, and other organizations.

In the first hour, the class covers 1) Top Three Reasons Why Bicycle Driving is Safer on Memorial During Rush; 2) How to Tame Tulsa Traffic, Without Really Dying; 3) How to Roll Broken Arrow Expressway, Without Getting a Heart Attack; and 4) How to Beat Roadway Bullies, Without Cops.

The second hour is practical instruction driving a bicycle. Bicycles and helmets will be provided to those who do not have them. Reservations required. Class size limited to 5. Fee is $30 person, less than a tank of gas.

Paul Tay is best known for absconding with $225,000 worth of radio advertising in his 2002 Mayoral campaign. He used a bicycle to tow a large billboard, publicizing his campaign website. The billboard appeared on all major Tulsa streets and highways, including Memorial, Riverside, and the Broken Arrow Expressway. Motorists, ignorant of bicyclists rights, called the radio stations fueling the publicity to feverish pitch.

Previously, he served as the City of Los Angeles first Bicycle Program Manager. He managed a budget of over $50 million and 25 public employees spread out over seven different City of L.A. agencies. In coordination with LAPD, Tay conducted research of bicycle-motor vehicle collisions reported within L.A. City Limits. Other related experiences include Bicycle Program Coordinator for the City of Hollywood, Florida. Driving a bicycle, he surveyed 4,000 miles of city streets for a pavement condition study.

Tay bikes the Broken Arrow Expressway regularly from 41st and Yale to Downtown. He lobbies the City of Tulsa to improve street conditions for bicyclists. Currently, he is organizing Oklahoma Bike Action Day.
