Protected bike lane benefits, in one page

I couldn’t find a really good, one-page informational sheet that touted the benefits of protected bike lanes for all road users (drivers, pedestrians, and bike riders alike), as well as business owners. So I created my own. Feel free to share it, print it out and post it, or hand it out to those who may be interested in or skeptical of the benefits of protected bike lanes. Click on it for a PDF version.If you have any suggestions for future editions or flyers, please let me know! Share this:Commenting Policy: Comments that are off-topic, unconstructive, or exhibit or encourage harassment toward another person will be removed.

Active Trans has a PDF fact sheet with most of the same stats but a different narrative designed to appeal more on non-cyclists and a more specific call to action. It’s less graphic though (just one photo), which makes it easier to overlook how significant those stats are. You should check it out if you haven’t seen it.Hi Lee, yep I received Active Trans’ version, it was very helpful! Trying to build myself a list of resources to use for various audiences. This was made to highlight some of the potential benefits to non-cyclists (and business owners).Pingback: Today’s Headlines | Streetsblog ChicagoI like this design. Great use of the word “lawfulness”.This is awesome! I saw it when Momentum put it on FB. I plan to send it to all of our Chambers of Commerce in our County. Thanks so much for being generous as to its use!Thank you! I must give credit to Active Transportation Alliance in Chicago as they were an inspiration for a more general-purpose, “good for everyone” sheet. Glad to hear it is being publicized and used!Pingback: An Open Letter to Those Who Casually Saunter through the Bike Lane | Stephen DaroriPingback: The Benefits of Protected Bike Lanes | Bike Accident Attorneys BlogIt’s nice, and far more polished/good-looking than I could ever do, but I gotta quibble with a Toronto stat used as it extrapolates from a city core segment eg. the Annex area, and implies it’s the broader City of Caronto, as I call it. So….yes, there’s some truth in the TCAT study, but full truth sadly it isn’t. Doesn’t that undercut the overall message?A Portland study has also shown that, while drivers tend to make more purchases in a lump sum, over the course of a month those arriving at a store on foot/bike purchase less, but more often, and end up buying more over a month period.Many of these types of studies are unfortunately limited in scope. There has not yet been research showing results everywhere, but I imply that putting a protected lane on a street can’t hurt business. And in some cases it improves it.!!! Never ever plan for a bike lane between the parking cars and the sidewalk. Budapest has made this mistake. It’s extremely dangerous, and they ended up rebuilding the whole road (Andrássy út): the bike lane is now between traffic and the parking area. It’s much safer and more fun this way.Pingback: Anti-bike hatred rears it’s ugly head once again, wrapped in seeming rationality | BikingInLAPingback: Why build protected bike lanes? « TriTAGPingback: Trickle-Down Dorothy – TransitizedPingback: Live Well Omaha » Blog Archive » Live Well Omaha digest – November 20, 2013Pingback: Has local government in London left cycling in the wrong lane? | bikinglondon.comsearchabout transitizedMost PopularNon-Sponsored AdvertisementsTop PostsTags Designed byFollow TransitizedGet every new post delivered to your InboxJoin other followers
