Educational Videos on Biking in Mpls
The Bicycle and Pedestrian Program and Communications Department have worked together on two great online videos about bicycle facilities in Minneapolis.
One is on bike lanes, and helps both bicyclists and drivers understand how standard, advisory, buffered and cycle-track style bike lanes work. They stress how to turn across a bike lane safely, which is extremely important because turning vehicles tend to cause the most car/bike accidents.
The other is on shared lanes, and describes both the "sharrow" markings and bicycle boulevard treatments we've started using in Minneapolis.
These videos are fantastic, and demonstrate the value of the Bike and Pedestrian Program in Public Works.
