Bike Sharing is a Tipping Point to Bicycling to the Suburbs
While such temporary solutions are heartening, it’s indicative that more needs to be done to accommodate people’s burgeoning interest in pedal powered transportation. With most suburbs having been designed with cars as the primary mode of transportation, it’s going to take a concerted, sustained effort to see a substantial increase in suburban biking. Road orientation must change, driver education must increase, and a shift perception of the bike (from a recreational device to a serious mode of daily transportation) needs to occur.
