How to bring bicycle boulevards to your community guide

Reconnecting America has just uploaded a handbook for those who want to bring modern bicycle boulevards to their communities created by the Initiative for Bicycle & Pedestrian Innovation and Alta Planning + Design.

Streetfilms.org has a great video showcasing bike boulevards in Berkley:
