Creating a Better, Healthier Community
There’s no better way to move people toward healthier lifestyles while moving your community away from traffic congestion and pollution than by providing the infrastructure necessary for more people to get around by bike.
Cost Benefit analyses show that up to $11.80 in benefits can be gained for every $1 invested in bicycling and walking.
But, investment in bicycle infrastructure does more than moving your citizens. It’s smart economic development too. Strong bicycling brings jobs and workers into your community.
“You cannot be for a start-up, high-tech economy and not be pro-bike.” – Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Chicago

Case study – Andersonville Development Group
The Andersonville Development Group knows that bike infrastructure equals a thriving business district. In 2012, the group had the idea of installing a parklet and Chicago’s first bike corrals.
