Detroit Bike Lanes Expand, Giving Cyclists New Options [Huff Post]

Detroit Bicycle Infrastructure
Detroit's city plan for bike lanes and other infrastructure shows increased attention to cycling in the city. See a big version here.
Newly painted bike lanes in several Detroit neighborhoods are changing the relationship between cars and bicycles in the Motor City. They're also changing who rides bikes.
Detroit's bicycle lane network has expanded to a total of 55 miles since the city ramped up efforts to install paths in 2008. The network is mostly in Midtown and Southwest Detroit and on Belle Isle, according to Ron Brundidge, director of the city's Department of Public Works. And there's the almost three-year-old Dequindre Cut bike path and greenway from Eastern Market to the river. The city expects to complete nearly 30 more miles of bike lanes this year and an additional 70 miles in 2013.
