Cities for Cycling Roadshow

The US National Association of City Transport Officials (NACTO) is a great resource for city transport planners. Members include such luminaries as Janette Sadik-Khan, NYC Transport Czar, and Sam Adams, Mayor of Portland.

I’ve talked before about NACTO publications – highly readable best practice guides that are available here through the power of the internet. One such is the Urban Bikeway Design Guide.

In the Cities for Cycling video below, Chicago’s city planners talk about how valuable this resource is. “It means we’re not making the same mistakes over and over”. I hope resources such as this are being read and incorporated into policy and infrastructure in Wellington.
