19 April – Cycle lanes and the difference they’ve made to New York

Download the MP3

This week BikeLove talks to Wiley Norvell of Transportation Alternatives in New York.  A dynamic organisation that advocates walking and cycling as modes of transport, they’ve been really successful in getting lots of cycle lanes included in the city plan.  New York is well underway with their cycilng renaissance and have been enjoying 20 – 30% increases year on year.  Now 1 in evey 24 vehicles is a bicycle!  Pretty impressive for the king of cities.  Lots for Sydney to learn here and be inspired by!

  1. OK if New York can do it why not our little city of Adelaide in Australia. Thankyou for showing the way
