Pop-Up Bike Lane

Summer and fall are the perfect times for doing a little bike advocacy where you live. One option might be to work with your local city to install a “Pop Up” bike lane like the one in the video below. Andrew Kuncel and a group of volunteers in Minneapolis put one up in part of the city, and it was a huge success. A pop up bike lane is basically just a temporary, separated bike lane that provides a safe area for bicyclists to ride away from traffic and pedestrians. And if the idea works like they suggest, it could have the effect of making your city want to install permanent ones when they see how successful it is. Check it out and maybe try it for your own city or neighborhood!Bikeways for Everyone-HD 720p from Knowble Media on Vimeo.Via Streetsblog.
