    “It really gives a cyclist a sense of owning the road and being able to take the lane, being able to be in the middle of the street where they can avoid the door zone…it’s not going to be a confrontational thing if a cyclist is in the middle of the road because it’s expected….” – DeAnna Tibbs

    “You can still have an urban grid to preserve through movement for cyclists and pedestrians while getting some of the benefits of a cul-de-sac when it comes to auto traffic.” – Sarah Syed

      Please pass on to your organisation if you do not currently have a bike registration system. Bike Revolution.org launches new global free bike registration and recovery service at Interbike in September in Las Vegas. http://www.bikerevolution.org
