A shift in power: Seattle’s Bicycle Master Plan

Most appealing in Seattle’s Bicycle Master Plan is the intention to mainly focus on existing roadways and making them more bike friendly and improving the City’s quality of life. I posted on this topic earlier, after being convinced by the Contested Streets documentary that shows how cities have “focused on the bicycle as a primary transporter and changed their streets and traffic flow to allow for more bikes.”

Also very important is wayfinding for cyclists and I think the goal of increasing “cycling from 2 percent of all trips now, to 12 percent of all trips within 20 years” is achievable.
