Episode 39: Becoming Bike City, USA

on

IMG_9248In our first episode on bikes in Colorado Springs we focused on a lot of the negative aspects of biking in the city such as crazy bike lanes and the city government’s apparent discomfort with creating more cycling friendly corridors. In the time since that episode aired the city hired Kate Brady as the new Senior Bicycle Planner, the Legacy Loop project got a huge infusion of cash, and the City of Colorado Springs is slowly becoming more bike friendly.Tune in this week as we chat with Ms. Brady and Allen Beauchamp, the city’s adaptive cycling specialist, to talk about all of the GREAT things happening in the city to make it more bike friendly. We also talk about the limitations of bike share, how “right sizing” streets can lead to more livable neighborhoods and some of the exciting projects coming our way.

In the show we mention the Legacy Loop project a few times. You can check out what the full loop would look like here.
