Pipe down hippie :)

Back to bikes http://www.nydailynews.com/ny_local/2009...

"On July 8, the city marked the completion of a three-year, $8 million project that brought the total miles of street lanes to 420"

"The number of cyclists exploding — increasing 35% between 2007 and 2008"

"City officials, expecting the number of bike commuters to triple by 2020, plan to create 50 miles of bike lanes a year going forward, reaching 1,800 by 2030"

So it certainly appears that creating a space for the tax payers to cycle (more) safely, has led to those tax payers to cycling.

Imagine this as a thought exercise, people are allowed to walk on the roads, but we take away the sidewalks and add more lanes. What would that look like?
