Bike Traffic Where You Live

Last week we put out a call to readers and members of the Streetsblog Network
for photos of bike traffic. We got a ton of great responses, and in the
slide show below, you’ll see what our readers are seeing around the
country: bikes in action, and in growing numbers.

Many thanks to Bike Portland, Cyclelicious, Portlandize, Bike by the Sea, Bicycle Fixation, the NYCDOT, the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia and all the other contributors.

We’ve squirreled away some of what you sent for future slide shows on other themes.

Speaking of which, here’s what we’re looking for next: We all know that cars take up a lot of space. A lot more space than any other form of transportation. We want your photos of cars hogging space in your communities — graphic examples of how they crowd out other users.

We know you see this stuff every day. Shoot it, send it to us, and we’ll share it with all our readers.

Send
JPEGs to me at sarah [at] streetsblog [dot] org. If you want, you can
tag submissions with "streetsblog" on Flickr, but it’s still a good
idea to send me an e-mail to alert me to what you think are your best
shots.

Can’t wait to see what you’ve got!
