The Daily posted an article on a recently announced study by the Harvard School of Public Health noting what we already see in Europe; separated bike lanes increase ridership and reduce accidents. The full study can be found here. What’s most impressive is that Scottsdale, Arizona now has 339 miles worth of separated bike lanes and is requiring all repavings to incorporate bicycle infrastructure. This study is timely given the Dallas Bike Plan adoption in April. We hope to see similar strides that cities like NYC, Minneapolis, and Scottsdale have made.
