Safer streets make bikes more popular, in NYT

You already knew this, surely, but when things like protected bike lanes are installed the numbers of bike riders go up and more of those riders are kids, older people, women, and less experienced riders. A quick study in New York recently confirmed this about women anyway. The New York Times article is here (they limit you to only a few article views a month for free).  Nice to see something we all knew written in a mainstream newspaper.
