#ForewordFriday: Bike Lane Edition

How do we create safe spaces for bikers and encourage cycling as an alternative to driving? That's the question the National Association of City Transportation Officials tackled with the Urban Bikeway Design Guide. Originally released as a binder, the guide has now been redesigned as a hardcover book for greater accessibility without sacrificing the detailed four-color graphics. Dissecting each section of street and type of bike infrastructure individually, the book offers solutions that have been proven to work, starting with how to build a better bike lane.
