Now the Times Is Just Rubbing It In

Here at LA Streetsblog, we spend a lot of time looking at some of the bicycle and pedestrian designs from around the world and going "why not us?"  Budapest.  Copehnagen.  Beijing.  Heck, even Tempe and Baltimore are doing better when it comes to supporting cyclists.

Well, thanks to the Times, we have a new city to add to the list.  The above picture is from an article about Japanese government attempts to clean up the Red Light District of Tokyo.  Note the great bike lane, even if someone is walking through it.
