Good news out of Cleveland! (God, it feels good to say that.)
Cycling is up 50% in the county, according to a study by the regional planning agency NOACA.
Because Cleveland is awe-some! Or, if you ask the experts …
A news release from NOACA said reasons for the increase may include the downturn in the economy, higher gas prices, buses being outfitted with bike racks and the growing number of bike lanes.
There really aren’t too many bike lanes in the city, actually, I have to add, as a bike commuter. But now that there has been a groundswell in public support for the practice, I’m sure that will change ;).
Kudos to Clevelanders for taking matters into their own hands.
