The Green Lane Project is a campaign by Bikes Belong, the bike industry supported organization, dedicated to putting more people on bikes. But what is a “green lane”?
Green lanes are next-generation bikeways being built on streets across the country, from San Francisco to New York City, from Minneapolis to Miami and from Long Beach to Pittsburgh. Green lanes are dedicated, inviting spaces for people on bikes in the roadway. They are protected from motor vehicles by curbs, planters, posts, or parked cars. They are separated from sidewalks. Some are painted green. The lanes are carefully engineered with rigorous attention to safety, efficiency, and ease of travel for all street users.
A green lane is a name for a growing family of modern bikeways—inspired by decades of experience in European cities and adapted to meet the unique needs of American streets.
In other words, they are exactly the sort of bike infrastructure we’ve been advocating for.
