How Bike Lanes can Boost the Economy | This Big City | Active Commuting | Scoop.it

Research suggests that having a bikeway right outside your front door is good for both your health and the value of your house. So should we use economics to support the case for more safe and separated bikeways in our cities?

European cities promote cycling with everything from ‘superhighways’ to revolving bike racks

European cities promote cycling with everything from ‘superhighways’ to revolving bike racks | Active Commuting | Scoop.it

Cycling through the heart of some European cities can be a terrifying experience as you jostle for space with cars, trucks and scooters that whizz by with only inches to spare. Thankfully for bicycle enthusiasts, a movement is afoot to create more room for cycling in the urban infrastructure.

From London’s “cycle superhighways” to popular bike-sharing programs in Paris and Barcelona, growing numbers of European cities are embracing cycling as a safe, clean, healthy, inexpensive and even trendy way to get around town.

Amsterdam and Copenhagen are pioneers of this movement and serve as role models for other cities considering cycling’s potential to reduce congestion and pollution, while contributing to public health.

The trend is catching on also outside Europe, says John Pucher, a professor of urban planning at Rutgers University in New Jersey and co-author of a new book titled “City Cycling.”

Pucher says urban cycling is on the rise across the industrialized world, though Europe is still ahead of the pack.

Cycling an Integral Part of Life in NYC

Cycling an Integral Part of Life in NYC | Active Commuting | Scoop.it

This article shows an alternate form of urbanism and city planning when the automobile isn't seen as the only form of vehicular transport with spatial needs.  You view a city differently, and experience a city distinctly when peddling through neighborhoods than you do when racing by on an expressway.   "It was recently announced that two-thirds of New Yorkers support bike lanes in their city. Cycling is now, undeniably, an integral part of life in the Big Apple."
