The “Cities for Cycling” Roadshow Rocks Chicago

"Cities for Cycling" is a project of the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) to document, promote and implement the world’s best bicycle transportation practices in American cities. As part of the Cities for Cycling program, bikeway design experts take their show on the road, using the streets of different U.S. cities as their classroom and the new NACTO design book as their guide.

"The NACTO Guide is a really important step for cities to say it is okay to be different then a rural area. We are not better…we are just different and we would like to apply these different principles," says Chicago Commissioner of Transportation Gabe Klein.

Streetfilms brings you these highlights of the Chicago stop on the tour, where representatives from the transportation departments of NYC, Portland and San Francisco shared lessons from developing bike infrastructure in their hometowns.

Elizabeth Press is a Filmmaker for Streetfilms. She joined Streetfilms in 2007 to focus her video work on advocating for better biking, walking and mass transit.

    I hope that they focus on intersection design. I'd argue that more important than bike lanes or cycle tracks are intersections that people feel safe navigating. Also, the breaks in cycle tracks need to accommodate any direction the cyclist may want to go– provide treatment and guidance for making a left, and making a u-turn. I'd say the biggest drawback to American cycle tracks is that are not very thoughtful at intersections, they seem to provide little provisions for those seeking to make a left.
