Palo Alto Bike Boulevards
The City of Palo Alto is a shining example of the impact that innovative infrastructure can have on increasing the number of people on bikes. As a League of American Bicyclists silver-ranked Bicycle Friendly Community and with 50-70% of school children biking to school, the City is doing many things right. Their 2012 Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan detailed many more projects to be implemented that would create a true network of bicycle infrastructure. We are holding the City to these goals by advocating for the completion of at least three bicycle boulevards this year. There is still much progress to be made and a full network of bicycle boulevards in the City would make it easier for people to seamlessly travel by bike to any of their destinations.
