New York City finishes 200 miles of bike lanes at Grand Concourse cermony

From the greatest city in the world!!!!!!! Wow a city that considers all modes of transportation not just getting brac people new lanes for their monster trucks and ass's.

With one last dash of paint, New York became the self-proclaimed "bike capital of the nation" Wednesday.
City leaders gathered on the Grand Concourse in the Bronx to paint the final stretch of a 200-mile, three-year bike lane expansion that nearly doubled the number of bike-lane miles across the car-packed five boroughs.
The project's completion brings the city's total street bike lanes to 420 miles and its total bike lanes, including park space, to 620 miles.
City Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan compared the project's size to a one-way road between New York and Boston, with New York now having double the number of bike-lane miles as Chicago. Bike commuting has increased by 45% since the project began, she said.
Wednesday's celebration emphasized the all-around benefits of biking, with Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe lauding how new bike paths attract people to city parks, and Dr. Thomas Farley, city health commissioner, applauding the benefits of physical activity and bike lane safety. read more here
