Goodbye, Bike Lane

Calling it redundant, NYC's DOT has chosen to sandblast 14 blocks of a Bedford Avenue bike lane away.

"It's hard to see how any bike lane, let alone a popular and useful route like Bedford Avenue, can be removed without compromising safety. 'This is a really heavily used segment of the Brooklyn bike network,' said Transportation Alternatives' Wiley Norvell. 'Calling it redundant is a bit like saying it's redundant to have sidewalks on the street. It's a necessary part of the transportation system. Cyclists are still going to use Bedford Avenue in large numbers, and they deserve a safe route.'"
