somewhat separate from my work at Troy Bike Rescue, I am part of an
appointed citizens committee on alternative transportation (an idea our
city is just sort of coming around to). we have 0 bike lanes, few bike
racks, and about 11 sharrows (under a year old).
our task is primarily research-oriented, and I am searching for comparable
cities and hoping the ThinkTank might help me. Do any of you have
suggestions of cities with the following characteristics:
-population: 50 - 100,000
-small "bike culture" community
-sizeable low-income population
-investing time/money/energy into bicycles as a way of turning the city
-demonstrable progress on that front
i know they are out there, but most examples are of much bigger cities.
I appreciate any suggestions!
