In the meantime, our friend Jean sent us this great post from Treehuger on how bike lanes boost business.
|Bike lanes increase business and decrease injuries to everyone using the streets.|
You can read the article on how bikes boost business, but suffice it to say, that a NY study showed a whopping 49% increase in retail sales! When you consider that our city council just made the permits for outdoor sidewalk seating a lot easier and cheaper, this will really increase sales for everyone on Washington and the surrounding areas!
I wonder what would happen to businesses along India street if there was a bike lane there too?
