We Need (Good) Bike Paths

Improving and adding bike paths are part of my overall transportation improvement plan.

What can we do?

1. Require newly built neighborhoods to be bike friendly.

2. Require that bike paths be installed when doing major road maintenance.

3. Add bike paths to existing streets (where it can be done safely and inexpensively).

4. Last, but not least, use best practices.

FAQ:

What is a bike friendly neighborhood? What does it look like?

In addition to the fourth point (above) here, here, and here are a few more examples.

What is inexpensive for a bike path?

It could be as simple (in the short term) as placing concrete barriers/dividers on the road so people can bike on dedicated pathways - not just painting some lines on the road! Maintaining bike trails is much cheaper than maintaining roads - there is much less weight going over them.
