Christian Science Monitor on SF Cycling
The Christian Science Monitor posted a great article about cycling in San Francisco on its site today, on the heels of a San Francisco Chronicle article a few weeks ago. The article, “Bicyclists winning a war of lanes in San Francisco,” notes that San Francisco’s bicycling network is an inspiration for other cities looking to make improvements to their own infrastructure.
The size and influence of the SFBC has made it a model for large cities such as Miami and St. Louis, which also seek ways to ease traffic, parking, noise, and air pollution.
“This movement is spreading to cities all across America,” says Dave Snyder, director of program development for the Thunderhead Alliance, a national coalition of state and local bicycle and pedestrian advocacy groups. “Organizers call and want to know how San Francisco has done what it has done in creating membership, raising money, winning public support, and pushing legislation.”
It’s a great article and well worth taking a few minutes to read.
