Minnesota Bike Lanes: Learning to Share the Road

Minnesota has a national reputation as one of the best states in the county for biking. Part of this acclaim includes hundreds of miles of on-street bike lanes. We talked with pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists in Minnesota in order to identify some common misconceptions about bike lanes. (Produced by the Minnesota Local Road Research Board.)

Streetfilms: The Power of Bicycling (Get Psyched)
