Infographic: National Protected Bike Lane Week 2016

Posted by Infra on Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

PEOPLE FOR BIKES

Protected bike lanes are the biggest new thing in years for helping more Americans enjoy time on two wheels.

When U.S. cities started building them in significant numbers five years ago, they discovered that this little change — putting curbs, posts, planters or parking spaces between bike and auto traffic — makes a huge difference to a street.

Since then, the country has collectively rewritten the book on designing for bikes. Protected bike lanes are now the gold standard for comfortable riding on busy streets.

The next challenge is to get more built in more places more quickly.

That’s why, starting today, cities around the United States are celebrating National Protected Bike Lane Week. And it’s why we created this infographic summarizing all the great things protected bike lanes can do — not just for people who bike, but for everyone.
