A few more reasons why bike lanes on Broadway are a great idea!
– Hubway. Yup, we’re getting a few more stations in our neighborhood this September which means more residents & visitors will be out there riding around, and you can be sure that many will be riding on Broadway to visit our numerous shops and restaurants!
– Economy. Broadway is where the action is, and that’s where bikers tend to flock. Statistics have shown that bike lanes on commerce dense areas boost retail sales because cyclists & pedestrians tend to make more frequent stops. (because it’s easy for us to pull over and shop shop shop!)
– Health. Physical activities such as riding a bicycle has proven health benefits. Reduced stress levels, reduced risk of cardiovascular disease & diabetes. Plus all these other health benefits.
– Predictability. Bike lanes help drivers too! Having a defined space on the road that is just for bikes really helps drivers know where to expect bicyclists, and can better anticipate a cyclists next move. Many drivers are afraid of accidentally hitting a bicyclist, and a bike lane will help everyone drive and ride more predictably.
