Which Bike Amenities Do You Value Most? Take the Survey

If you ride a bike in New York and have five minutes to spare, one Streetsblog reader is looking to hear from you.

Brendan Shera, a master’s student in Columbia’s urban planning program, is writing his thesis about what kinds of infrastructure NYC cyclists prefer to use. Is secure parking more important to you than a bike lane? Would you rather get to work faster or more comfortably? Those are some of the questions Shera is trying to answer.
