Earlier this year, we published a cover story about Critical Mass and the state of cycling in San Francisco. With thousands of new San Franciscans anticipated to flood the city in the not-too-distant future, it stands to reason that thousands of future trips must be shunted to alternative means of transportation just to keep the number of cars at its current — rather high — level.
So, the city has a vested interest in putting you on a bike. The question is: How?
A big bike study funded by The Green Lane Project (and capably reported on earlier in The Atlantic Cities) essentially recapitulates most of the talking points being put forward by bike advocates — but, now, provides them with a big bike study to quote.
