City of Portland, which created it based on survey data. The bar categorizes the public according to their attitude about cycling:
- Strong and Fearless
- Enthused and Confident
- Interested but Concerned
- No Way No How
There are many strategies (bike sharing, education, enforcement) that will help grow bicycling in Philadelphia and convince more people to shift from "Interested but Concerned" over to "Enthused and Confident." But, one important (and relatively low cost) strategy is to make more of the city's streets feel safer for cyclists. One type of infrastructure that accomplish this is separated bike lanes, i.e. cycletracks. These higher quality bike lanes are separated by paint, such as the Spruce and Pine bike lanes, or better yet, physical barriers, and are effective at drawing out those reluctant cyclists to try using their bike instead of driving. We're psyched that Deputy Mayor Cutler and Mayor Nutter are embracing this approach and look forward to hearing more details about the soon to come north-south bike lanes.
