Biking in the City

18 Jun

The city of Richmond now has an official web site focused on biking and walking in RVA.  Check it out here.  In addition to news on infrastructure developments and events like this coming Saturday’s RVA Streets Alive, it includes some handy tips and answers to FAQs on topics like locking your bike, requesting a rack in front of your business, and what sharrows really mean.

While we’re on the topic of riding in the city, Grist has posted a fun new video “Biking in the City (Tips for the Bicycle Curious)” that covers the basics in an engaging way, with cool music and in just under 4 minutes.  Consider sending a link to any bike curious folks you know.

Another recent post on Grist highlights some creative things being done in Chicago, San Francisco, and elsewhere to do a bit of education among car drivers and bicycle riders on how to coexist with one another.  In the U.K. they are even including skills and knowledge about driving around cyclists in driver education!
