Central to increasing biking infrastructure is the addition of bike lanes throughout the city.
Protected Bike Lanes
Protected Bike Lanes use physical barriers between bike riders and traffic. This gives people on bikes a feeling of safety when they are on a busy street. These lanes use curbs, planters, parked cars and plastic posts to separate bicycle traffic from sidewalks and auto traffic. They can be designed to accommodate one-way or two-way traffic. These bike lanes make riding a bike appealing to everyone including the young and new riders.
