New York Public Radio WNYC reports on the efforts to make the city more bike friendly.

“As part of Mayor Bloomberg’s environmental initiative, known as PlanYC, the city is set to have 18 hundred miles of bike lanes in place by 2015. But even before the policy shift, a trend has been underway on the streets, attracting more bike riders by the day.”

Jan Gehl, an urban designer from Copenhagen, who advises the city’s Department of Transportation.

Janette Sadik-Khan, the transportation commissioner.
