What makes a city bicycle-friendly? Certainly not douchebags–of any kind

Thank you for the support

by 

This is kind of dumb.

But…still good addition to the magazine’s Bike Nation series (Good) in honor of National Bike Month (Bike League). A favorite post so far,  If You Build Bike Lanes, They Will Ride, reports findings of a study that looked at over 90 of the largest cities in the U.S. to answer the question, “what makes a city bicycle-friendly?”

The answer, “the more infrastructure exists to encourage biking, the more people bike—and the more society reaps the public health, energy, and lifestyle benefits that come with an increasing share of people-powered transportation.”

Go build it. Go ride.
