A city of Tampa staffer told me she considered applying for this Bikes Belong "Green Lane Project" but was told by her superiors there were more important priorities.
So, while Tampa needs all the help it can get to expand its bicycle infrastructure network, these other six cities won major resources from Bikes Belong for their bicycle systems -- Austin, Chicago, Memphis, Portland, San Francisco and Washington D.C.
“The selected cities have ambitious goals and a vision for bicycling supported by their elected officials and communities,” said Bikes Belong President Tim Blumenthal. “They are poised to get projects on the ground quickly and will serve as excellent examples for other interested cities.”
Tampa and other Florida cities, are you listening?
