    The NYT’s writeup quotes European cities as running green waves for cyclists to pedal 20 mph. Can that be right? As any cyclist knows, 20 mph is above average athleticism & not at all plausible for everyday commuting on a commuter bike. I wonder if they meant 20 km/hour and didn’t have an editor to catch the mistake.
