Building “bicycle freeways”


The Guardian Newspaper in Britain has a great story about London’s plans to build 12 “bicycle motorways”. They plan to spend up to 400 million (pounds) over 10 years to link residential areas to the city centre. Along with this they will provide short term free bike use similar to the system in Paris.

They hope to increase cycling by 400% with these measures.

Interesting that they will actually build cycling facilities without first building more roads for motor vehicles. What an original idea.
