I mean, this is not exactly groundbreaking rhetoric. Tons of downtowns invest a lot in figuring out the best way to have parking in their cities to make it easier to drive in and park.
But, anec-data-lly, having spent a lot of free time in the Twin Cities, the bike infrastructure there pretty much feels a lot nicer than here. I mean, it IS Minnesota.
....feels a lot nicer than here....
Yes..when it isn't covered by snow and ice! I don't think The Cities use anywhere near as much salt as does Chicago!
But you have an interesting viewpoint Caiken...can you expand on WHY it is nicer to bike in The Cities? And from a cyclist's point of view, what is the difference between Minneapolis and St Paul, other than the fact that one was Lutheran and the other Catholic? From my experience, streets in St Paul are quieter, slower, and more-wooded...which means biking is nicer.
"anec-data-lly" - great word. Going to start using.
Build it and they will come -- or not?
Will Amazon put HQ2 in MPLS if they just get rid of those damn bike lanes and put in more 'free' parking? Methinks not.
