Just last week, I wrote about Los Angeles’s new bike corral, which took one car parking spot and turned it into 10 or so bicycle parking spots. Now, a new film from the out-of-the-car thinkers at Streetfilms shows a big-picture view of just how much more mileage cities can get by spending money on bicycle infrastructure instead of car infrastructure.
The film — called “Moving Beyond the Automobile: Bicycling” — also features interviews from leaders in San Francisco and New York City who’ve embraced the two-wheeling way of life. Sadly, Los Angeles does not make an appearance — but perhaps it will be worthy of future Streetfilms videos when the city finishes installing the 30 more bike corrals it has planned. Watch, be inspired and bike!
