Advocating Bikeways for Everyone

Body: 

The Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition in April launched its Bikeways for Everyone campaign to add at least 30 miles of protected bikeways to city streets by 2020.

Protected bikeways are physically separated from motor-vehicle traffic, and because they feel safer to bicyclists, advocates say they’re essential for boosting bicycling rates in Minneapolis. A citywide network of protected bikeways would encourage a wider range of people to view bicycles as day-to-day transportation and not just recreation, said Ethan Fawley, the coalition’s executive director.
