There's a new push for protected bike lanes across Uptown

(by Andrew Dunn, Charlotte Agenda)

Sure, people do bike to work Uptown, but it’s not particularly easy. Uptown is home to a large concentration of Charlotte’s most dangerous intersections.

Jordan Moore, the bicycle program director of Sustain Charlotte, is behind a movement to get the city to commit to protected bike lanes across Uptown — and he’s got a pretty convincing argument.

Protected lanes give people a lot more comfort in traveling by bike and some cities that have tried it have had a huge increase in the percentage of people commuting that way.
