Laura commented on Bicycle Action Plan

I'm curious if something like this would work. There are already "rewards" for cycling and walking, such as saving money on operating a car, not having to pay for parking, and getting exercise without having to go to a gym. Maybe a more concrete reward would help. There's Active Commute Week, which is a small window where there are prizes (and some pretty good ones) for getting somewhere by cycling, walking, carpooling, or using mass transit. I participated for the first time this year and enjoyed the friendly competition and the chance for prizes.

The wayfinding signs are nice, I think, because they show how to get somewhere specific; plus, I think they might be an encouragement to bike, because they specifically suggest places people can get on their bikes. The Bike Route signs that I've seen (I specifically remember seeing them just north of 36th St west of 131) don't say where they lead, so they don't seem very useful. Thanks for mentioning the Commission meeting. That is something I hope to be able to attend.
