Biking in New York, 1980-2009

Good transportation blog recently posted the article Biking Is Way Up in New York City. Again. that includes a good chart showing growth of cycling since 1980-2009. With better facilities, cycling has grown from about 2000 in 1980 to around 15,500 now. "According to the most recent data from the New York City Department of Transportation, biking in the city skyrocketed again this year. The colored bars represent the number of bikes counted at different commuter points over the course of a single day."

Congressman Blumenauer rides in New York City

Today Streetfilms released a short film about a visit to New York City by Congressman Earl Blumenauer:
Rep. Earl Blumenauer dropped by Transportation Alternatives' offices to take a quick excursion around mid-town with Executive Director, Paul Steely White, and Senior Policy Director, Noah Budnick. They checked out a few standard (painted) bike lanes and some of the newer (physically separated) facilities, of which the latter Mr. Blumenauer thought were superior. Along the way he offered much commentary about the state of biking and livable streets in the nation.
