Bike lanes all the way! It is all about making the jump and actually providing the necessary facilities to allow for a progressive future in regards to the available choices a user has about their transportation options. Biking is just one choice. We have cars pretty well figured out, now we need to provide lanes for bikes.
I live in Portland, OR, and the #1 reason I have been able to get out of my car and onto a bike to eliminate using my automobile as much as possible, is because the city has provided the facilities to do so. I encourage anyone to take a trip to Portland and experience what you can have in your very own city, if you make the right decisions now and provide options for all users. Not just cars, and not just bikes - everyone.
