Moving Beyond the Automobile: Bicycling
In the second chapter of Streetfilms’ Moving Beyond the Automobile series, we’re taking a look at bicycling.
The benefits of cycling are simple: It helps reduce congestion, meet sustainability goals, and improve public health. With Portland leading the way, many American cities have seen the share of people biking to work rise substantially in recent years [PDF]. For this video we spent some time with leading thinkers in New York, San Francisco and Portland to discuss how safer cycling infrastructure is helping more people make the choice to bike.
