Bicycle Users Take Action Into Their Own Hands

The Institute for Transportation and Development Policy and the National Network for Urban Cycling (BiciRed) began a campain, Veloz says, asking national legislators to assign at least that percentage of the transportation budget to non-motorized infrastructure.

"To promote that campaign and pressure legislators into action, several cycling and pedestrian organizations decided to paint their own bike lane in front of Congress on October 20th."
