Get ready for another Streetsblog Network slide show.

This time, in honor of National Bike Month, we’re looking for pictures of bicycle infrastructure that you love. Lanes, trails, paths, signs, signals, parking, you name it — we want to see the best examples from all over the country.

We know there’s a lot of innovative stuff being built out there, and we’re counting on you to show us something we haven’t seen before, or just something that you’re particularly fond of.

You can send me JPEGs at sarah [at] streetsblog [dot] org, or tag your photos "streetsblog infrastructure" in Flickr. Please include caption information and let us know how you’d like to be credited. Get your photos to us by the afternoon of Friday, May 21.

To see a couple of examples of past user-generated slide shows, check out this one of work bikes, or this one of space hogs (those would be cars).

Cleveland Bikers to ODOT: ‘Let Us Cross the Bridge’

|

DOT Secy Wants “Sustained Engagement” from Bike Advocates

But more and more, we like what we’re reading there. Like yesterday’s post, titled "Bicycling Is an Important Factor in Less Carbon-Intensive Commuting," in […]
