Did you know that protected bike lanes have all sorts of amazing community and business benefits? Of course we cyclists get to enjoy the safety benefits, but every community should consider protecting their bike lanes as pointed out in this great one page summary written by Shaun Jacobsen.

What is a protected bike lane? It is not only a dedicated bike path/lane, but one that is separated by some sort of barrier. This barrier can be parked cars, plastic posts, planters, and much more. Only some of the larger urban areas actually have these protected bike lanes.

Phoenix just began a campaign to paint their bike lanes bright green. This provides a stunning visual for drivers and cyclists alike. It is still a far cry from fully protected bike lanes, but it is a definite step in the right direction! You can read more on the Fox news article here.
