Get a free copy of our new report on bike lanes and the economy

Over the last week, we've been sharing tidbits from our big new report on the ways protected bike lanes are supporting economic growth in the cities where they're being built.

The best use of this report, though, may not be in your reading about it on our blog. It might be from your dropping a hard copy on the desk of someone important.

Here's how: Send an email to my boss, Green Lane Project Director Martha Roskowski, at martha@peopleforbikes.org. Include your mailing address, a sentence or two on how you'd like to use the reports in your work, and how many copies (up to five) you'd like.

No charge — if we think you've got a good way to use them, this one's on us.

What's in the report

A collaboration between PeopleForBikes' Green Lane Project and the Alliance for Biking and Walking, we've been posting parts of it here on the site over the last few months. Here's a directory of links to the stories we've shared.

The report, which you can also download as a free PDF, draws on five of the Green Lane Project's focus cities to explain four ways that better bike lanes help urban economies:

Throughout the report, and many of the blog posts here, we've included statistics and infographics showing that these aren't isolated anomalies. The fact that high-quality bike lanes help the economy is part of the new economic reality for American cities.

It's always nice to be working on the side of reality. All you have to do is talk about it.

The Green Lane Project is a PeopleForBikes program that helps U.S. cities build better bike lanes to create low-stress streets. You can follow us on Twitter or Facebook or sign up for our weekly news digest about protected bike lanes. Story tip? Write michael@peopleforbikes.org.
