Want a cycling city? Design for traffic safety

Recently, a international summit was held to discuss urban cycling around the world.

From the TheCityFix story:

“At the city level, a cohesive network of bicycle facilities that connects parks, streets, waterfronts, and other vital corridors is necessary for ensuring safe cycling conditions. Copenhagen’s well-known network is a great example of this kind of comprehensive planning. A similar network is emerging inMinneapolis, where on-street buffered and protected bicycle lanes are expanding the city’s already renowned off-street trail network.”
