Earlier this year, Greensboro “wanted” the Bicycling History Museum to move here when they lost their lease. The city that earned that right was so bicycle friendly, they had a Bike in their City Seal. Greensboro is not exactly bicycle friendly – Bob Lowe reports lots of negative comments to his News & Record article. What would you expect from a city that allows parking in bike lanes?
Other cities require developers to build roads, water infrastructure, sidewalks, bike lanes and even schools when they build new communities. In Greensboro, the developers let the taxpayers foot the bill, they take the difference as profits.
Anyway, there is a local website to promote Bicycling In Greensboro. It’s a good start. That’s to NJM for the Head’s Up.
