Bicycle Infrastructure Overhaul
Bicycle lanes should be moved onto sidewalks with one lane consistent with traffic flow and have small curb cuts to separate bikes from cars/pedestrians. Non recreational cyclists should take safety classes and obtain a license. Color coordinated bike lanes green for all, red restricted for non recreational cyclists. Cyclist hubs that act like rest stops, where citi bikes could be rented and also be able to check tire pressure etc. This overhaul would be a multi pronged Boon to the City.

I think it’s a fair middle ground, logistical issues aside. Biking is a decent transportation alternative during non inclement weather in warmer months but it’s not really fair or equal. Sure it’s perfect for the physically fit individual going to work aged 18-60, that lives somewhat near work. But even then, inter-borough travel is a nightmare. A large portion of the population can’t utilize it such as the elderly, small children, handicapped or injured can’t use it. Plus, a saddle bag on a bike can only hold so much.
