This Streetfilm was a pure joy to make, and it really snuck up on me. Nijmegen, a small Dutch city, was never on my radar. But I found myself in town last month for the Velo-City 2017 conference, and it was a marvel. The car-free center of Nijmegen is full of street life. Kids play and ride bikes without […]

As usual, the 2nd Annual Tour de Queens served up many smiles per mile!
Meet Gabe Klein who was appointed new director of Washington D.C.'s Department of Transportation (DDOT) in December 2008.
Check out the valet bike parking at Celebrate Brooklyn.
On the second Friday of the month, Transportation Alternatives Queens Committee leads a "bike pool" along Queens Boulevard. By riding together in a group each month, the bike pool works not only to educate drivers that bikes are on the street and to make a statement about the need for a bike lane, but it give the borough's bike commuters a safe, escorted ride home.
Transportation Alternatives help their 5th Annual Tour De Brooklyn 23-mile ride through a host of different neighborhoods including the Greenwood Cemetery.
In October 2005, the Los Angeles County Metro Authority (or Metro) debuted a new 14-mile BRT system in the San Fernando Valley using a former rail right-of-way.

Streetfilms talked with bike commuters on Valencia Street about how re-timing traffic lights to a bike pace would greatly improve their trips.
