The City of New York has announced future safer infrastructure for the bicycling community. This long awaited announcement has been something that Time’s Up! has been working on for years. They announced that over the next three years the DOT will add 200 miles of bike lanes including on-street striped lanes, signed routes, and 40 miles of greenway paths. Additionally, the city says it will accelerate the installation of bicycle parking racks city-wide. This is a great first step, however respect for non-polluting transportation and the cycling community still has a long way to go.
