The color of envy

Mapping Your NYC Bike Commute from Streetfilms on Vimeo.

The trademark green of some NYC bike lanes, that is.

Wow, just when you thought DC was doing well with bike lanes etc, New York comes along at full steam and makes DC look kind of lacking. I was in NY recently and noticed a lot of bikes in Manhattan. They are doing amazing, innovative things, even in the boroughs, to get bikers feeling safe even on longer commutes. Tons of protected lanes. And ridership is booming as a result. Build it and they will come, indeed. Check out the above really well-done video by Streetfilms. (Um, yes, found on Copenhagenize... as usual...)
