GreenCityBlueLake calls on Cleveland to take the practical, cost-effective step to make its complete and green streets ordinance effective on the W. 65th Street project.
Bike lanes "create a more predictable environment for the driver and the cyclist," said Marc Lefkowitz, who has criticized the West 65th design in a blog for the GreenCityBlueLake Institute.
Bike lanes will attract more riders than sharrows, he said. And putting cyclists on the shared-use trail with pedestrians is risky, Lefkowitz said. Cyclists can roll at speeds that are a better mix with cars than those on foot, Lefkowitz said.
