Picture this: You’re riding down the bike path away from the frenzied traffic and enjoying the great outdoors. But this isn’t a recreational ride. You’re conducting everyday business…crossing errands off your list, doing many of the things you’ve traditionally done in your car…on your bike.
Along the trail you stop in at a farm shop, buy vegetables and jam and put them in one of your three baskets. Further down the path, you buy candy and flowers from a path-side vendor. Up ahead there’s a book store and a bike shop. And, fortunately, there’s an ATM. you can get the cash you need to meet friends at that great coffee shop for bikes only.
The idea is simple – Bike In Zoning is exclusively dedicated to bicycle and pedestrian customers.
There is virtually no end to the private enterprise possibilities designed to serve bike traffic only. And It’s not a dream for the future. With innovative Bike In Zoning, it can happen now, on private property along existing trails.
The city of Albuquerque and Bernalillo County should be commended for their investment in and their enthusiastic support for the bicycle community. And with their plans for expanding the existing bike network, Bike In Zoning will only enhance the vision with private participation.
Bike In Zoning comes at no expense to the city or county. It involves no public property and, best of all, it involves no vehicle traffic for neighborhoods to worry about.
Let the zoning happen and watch Albuquerque’s entrepreneurial energy take over.
Let the zoning happen and watch Albuquerque and Bernalillo County become the models for bicycle use across the country.
Let’s support the business end of cycling.
