Better Bikeways and Walkable Cities

Bicycling is growing as more people discover the joys and convenience of bicycling.   Businesses want more people to walk and bicycle because more foot traffic means more spending and social energy in local business districts.  

People want to  walk or bicycle more in their daily lives to reduce transportation costs, stay healthy, and have more active lifestyles.

At the same time too many people are still hurt or killed while bicycling.   The average person  will not join those of us who already bicycle and walk unless we overhaul our streets with safe streets and bikeways that connect our destinations and protect us from speeding car traffic.
