The New York Times is spotlighting  the city's 400 miles of bike lanes in its most recent "Room for Debate" opinion forum. My response points out that the bike lanes will do little to improve mobility and reflects a concentrated subsidy for a very small minority of travelers. Among the other contributors is Alex Marshall, a columnist for Governing magazine who also points to a more rational and pragmatic approach to thinking about integrating bikes into urban transportation systems.
