Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) January 03, 2013
On January 3, a representative of city bike manufacturer Linus Bike comments on an article published by JournalStar.com which highlights the proposed efforts to improve cycling safety in Lincoln, Colorado.
The article cites Mike Cooper, a resident cyclist who is hopeful to make cycling safer around his neighborhood. He is not alone in this effort. According to JournalStar.com, “A few dozen area residents and cyclists trickled into the Jayne Snyder Trails Center at Union Plaza, 21st and Q streets, [December 15th] to offer suggestions for a proposed Bicycle and Pedestrian Capital Plan for Lincoln.” The article reports that city officials plan on improving safety for cyclists by fixing infrastructure, adding to trails and routes, and adding to crosswalks.
According the article, the proposed plan “calls for adding 53 miles of on-street bike routes to the 82 that exist, and a 9.5-mile expansion to the city's 1.7-mile shared-lane system.” In addition, high priority changes include: expanded bike parking, adding shoulders for cyclists on “heavily traveled” roads, lighting for underpass trails and bike-activated signals.
Jason Latty, a sales manager for Linus Bike, weighs in on the article. “I’m inspired by how the community came together to state their concerns regarding bicycle safety in their city.” Latty continues, “It doesn’t matter if you’re an avid cyclist or not. It doesn’t matter if you ride a commuter bike, a city bike or a mountain bike. Improving a city’s infrastructure to protect the safety of individuals is important. Linus Bike applauds the proposed changes for Lincoln and wishes the community success.”
