NYC Cycling Way Up

Way to go NYC! One person interviewed in the video makes the point that cycling in NYC has increased so significantly in the last two years for two main reasons. The first is infrastructure improvement, which makes riding more comfortable, safe, and enjoyable. The second is the idea that more people riding encourages others to ride. Habits and trends come to be established over time in a group by living amongst others who do the same practice. So when more people “practice” cycling, it gradually becomes the norm. There is also a feedback between infrastructure improvements and more people cycling.Bottom line – NYC is doing something right and that’s good to see!Via Streetfilms.
