Three-foot-wide striped bike lanes and “share the road” markings may provide enough security for the 10 percent of people who are already strong and confident cyclists.
But what about the other 90 percent of people -- those who need more protection from cars in order to cycle without feeling anxious?
Active Trans believes that providing these 90 percent with “next-generation” bike facilities will increase confidence and allow for safer, more frequent cycling trips.
That’s the focus of our newest campaign, Family-Friendly Bikeways.
