Race, ethnicity, class and protected bike lanes: An idea book for fairer cities | PeopleForBikes

“Almost as soon as PeopleForBikes selected its first six Green Lane Project focus cities, [they] started hearing from their staffers that they wanted to better understand how the values of diversity and equity – of race, of ethnicity, of class – could improve their work to make bicycling mainstream.”

Building Equity: Race, Ethnicity, Class and Protected Bike Lanes [free download] is a 36-page “idea book for fairer cities,” and it has three main ingredients:

  • Profiles of 10 very different people of color from around the country who are, for diverse reasons, advocating for protected bike lanes in their communities.
  • Data-rich explorations of the role protected bike lanes have played in advancing equity in Colombia, Denmark and China.
  • A collection of statistics, new and old, about the intersections of race, ethnicity, income and bike infrastructure, including some from a major new statistically valid survey of U.S. biking habits.”
