Biking a Dutch Cycle Superhighway

|
It's no secret that the Dutch have the best bicycle infrastructure on Earth. And it keeps getting better. I recently got to ride the Arnhem-Nijmegen Cycle Superhighway. Imagine being able to bike 11 miles between two downtowns and not have to stop once for cars -- that's what the superhighway provides.

Highway Planners Pause to Consider the Effect of Road Widening on Detroit Neighborhoods

|
Standard practice for the highway planners at state DOTs is to sacrifice all other concerns at the altar of fast car traffic. Nowhere has the effect been more obviously detrimental than Detroit, where the overbuilt freeway system helped hollow out one of America's largest cities. But highway planners in Michigan are starting to listen to people who say they want something different.
