Following an article from the Tribune Review, city bike manufacturer and distributor, Linus Bikes, comments on cycling as a mode of transportation and its multifaceted use for city dwellers.

On July 25, 2012, maker and distributor of fine city bikes, Linus Bikes, released a statement following an article about bike lanes to emphasize their belief that cycling benefits not only individuals, but also communities.

The writer of the article from the Tribune Review complains that the plan to add bike lanes in Pittsburgh on the southbound side of East Carson from Arlington Avenue to about E. Seventh Street by eliminating parking. The article states, " The city’s installation of a bike lane would create more congestion in a popular area as people spend more time driving around looking for a parking space.” Linus Bikes, however, responds to this writer’s belief by looking at it from a different point of view.

Linus Bikes representative China Reevers says, “Cyclists may be more encouraged to bike than drive given the new bike lanes in popular areas, reducing the number of cars on the road and thus reducing congestion and need for more parking spaces. Bicycle riding in cities helps to reduce emissions from automobiles, traffic congestion, and increases fitness level among cyclists. It is the hope of Linus Bikes that any initiative on the part of an area to increase the number of city bikes on the road will benefit individuals and communities.”    

Linus Bikes is a California-based bicycle manufacturer that specializes in creating vintage style city bikes and commuter bikes. Not simply a bicycle company, Linus Bikes sells a complete line of accessories for the environmentally conscious and for those who have a fondness for European style bicycles and the great tradition of European cycling.
