Bike Infrastructure Innovators Take Their Show on the Road

"Cities for Cycling" is a project of the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) to document, promote and implement the world’s best bicycle transportation practices in U.S. cities.

In this Streetfilm you'll see how a typical visit can inspire, enlighten and energize city leaders & advocates. During Bike Month, experts from the transportation departments of New York City (Jon Orcutt), Portland (Roger Geller) and San Francisco (Timothy Papandreou) came to Boston to talk about bike infrastructure in their cities and how they accomplished innovative change to their streetscapes. Through public presentations, meetings with city officials, and bike ride "audits," the Cities for Cycling road show is poised to be an informative, powerful tool for governments.

In addition, NACTO is in the process of developing an online Urban Bikeway Design Guide which will showcase the engineering techniques being deployed by NACTO members to make bicycling safer, more comfortable and more convenient. This guide is due to be released later this year, but they already are hosting many useful resources for bike planners.
