Top Bike Lanes Help: Summer Streets

Top Bike Lanes Help: Summer Streets

A Dutch-style protected bike lane is part of the city’s bike boulevards.

One major project for a Dutch-style protected bike lane in an otherwise Dutch-style protected lane is an all-season protected bike lane, planned for Summer Street. The Dutch approach, created by Dutch designer Pablo Barricco of Vibonn, also features a low-maintenance, low-maintenance, quick-to-open-in-the-middle-of-September treatment.

Parking-protected bike lanes are a great first step in the fight against climate change and pollution, but it’s more than just switching to protected lanes. In the United States, there are approximately 30 million parking spaces, and they were responsible for about 1 million miles of land area per year—that’s a lot of the planet’s surface which means that there are no excuse to store cars. To address this problem, Dutch cycling infrastructure has been upgraded, with a number of quick-build projects. There are already a slew of quick-build projects that are popping up across the city, and some are in construction.  

Plazar for a bike-only protected bike lane.

The city of Amsterdam has a number of bike and pedestrian improvements, but few are complete yet, so it’s important that there are also cycle routes, such as the famous “cycle track” by Amsterdam’s Copenhagen Infrastructure Authority. The first iteration of protected bike lanes was approved in October, and will add a new type of protected bike lane to a busy, busy bike lane.

Meanwhile, one major project in Copenhagen, which included an all-use path and an all-use cycle track, is also underway.

Greenway users have a way to walk or bike safely.

A new, one-way bike path was completed at Greenway’s Copenhagen Plaza, and will provide space for up to 20 people, and will also be an extension of existing paved areas between Fifth Avenue and Knecht’s Corner. On-street pathways are also being planned.

The new bike path continues through the heart of a beautiful little greenway in Amsterdam.

The city built a two-way cycle track from a mid-1990s industrial complex in Amsterdam. This will also provide more space for people in cycling or walking on a two-way protected cycle track, including for people walking on a multi-use path, and also for bike traffic.

Bike and pedestrian paths are planned for the Upper East Side.

I have not yet seen any protected bike lanes, but I’m not sure that this new phase of the cycle track is complete. While the city is moving forward on protected bike lanes in the first decade, a long-delayed proposal has been put off until 2022 because of concerns that car traffic will threaten cyclists.

Still, it’s important not only to reduce the overall number of vehicles on the road, but also to make bicycling comfortable, reliable, and accessible. As a sustainable transportation advocate, I think the safest, most economical form of transport, it makes sense to use cycling as a first- and last resort.
