I love volunteering with Transportation Alternatives. Smart people, great mission.
Infrastructure creates results. If all you have are roads, all you’ll see are cars. If you have sidewalks, you’ll have walkers. If you have bike lanes and greenways, you’ll have bikers.
I got a call yesterday from Metro NY asking me to comment on the new study from Quinnipiac University that shows that 14% more New Yorkers are biking to work this year compared to 2010.
“Every morning, Erin Lamberty, 24, has a choice: Take three subways to get from her Upper East Side apartment to her advertising job in SoHo or hop on her bike.
She chooses two wheels over a crowded train every time.
“It’s a good way to de-stress at the beginning and end of the day,” she said.”
In short, two wheels are better than three trains for your body and for your mind.
