Two articles from UrbanVelo.org about Bicycle Transportation

The first is about a new study from the Washington DC Department of Transportation.

… a 175% increase in peak-hour cycling from 2004-2012 that goes along with a 300% increase in the number of bike lanes in that same time.

The second is an announcement out of Chicago, IL.

Chicago has planned to add 645 more MILES of bike lanes, 30 of those being protected lanes and 70 going down by 2015.

These are both excellent pieces of news for our cycling citizens, and people who hope to be cycling citizens. Let’s all together look at what DC has done and what Chicago is doing and use these as examples of how we can all come together to make our roads safer and more fun to use!
