Bicycle Friendly America Fall 2016 - 13

JENNIFER DILL Bike traffic signals and colored pavement for the separated lane. where I discovered another new separated bike lane, this time a narrow one-way lane separated by parked cars. However, some bus parking zones interrupted the lane, causing one cyclist I saw to jump up on the sidewalk. Vehicles parked in bike lanes was a common site on my afternoon of walking. In my day of wandering, I saw a lot of similarities to large European cities in terms of architecture and scale, with one exception-very wide roads. According to an Urban Land Institute report, Moscow's street network is far less dense than comparable European cities and New York, with only 9% of the land dedicated Continued on Page 35 JENNIFER DILL Mapes's book, Pedaling Revolution. The attendees were eager to learn, to apply lessons from successful cities (Copenhagen, London, Buenos Aires, etc.) to their city. The barriers identified were similar, including skeptical government leaders, limited budgets, lack of trained personnel, lack of plans and incomplete or conflicting standards. When the two-day event was done, I had one day to explore the city. I spent it on foot, but saw several examples of the new 158 km of separated bicycle lanes added to the heart of the city. A two-way path shared with a wide sidewalk provided a nice ride along Bolshaya Nikitskaya Street, though at midday I saw more pedestrians using it than bicyclists (Right). Wikipedia tells me that this street originated in the Middle Ages. Google maps street view doesn't go back that far, but its view from June 2015 revealed that the sidewalk was expanded and parking removed in many places to create the new bike lane in the last year. The city's bike share system of 300 stations and 4,500 bikes opened for the season that week, and I spotted at least one in use along the street (Page 11). The system's website (http://velobike. ru/en/) indicates that there have been over 900,000 trips so far in 2016, already surpassing the 880,000 trips reported for 2015. When that lane approached a complicated 6-way intersection, there were bike traffic signals, though cyclists still needed to dodge pedestrians (Top right). My route led to a large ring road only about a kilometer from Red Square, Cyclists crossing 8 lanes of Tverskaya Street, near Pushkin Square BICYCLE FRIENDLY AMERICA 13 http://www.velobike.ru/en/ http://www.velobike.ru/en/
