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. 

Here’s where you can fill out Shera’s five-minute online survey. The more people who take it, the more useful the results will be to cyclists and bike planners. If you have any questions about the project, you can e-mail Shera at nycbikesurvey@gmail.com
