Asbury Park is perfectly situated to develop world class bike and pedestrian infrastucture that serves everyone with the reconfiguration of Main Street and redevelopment of the city’s south west neighborhood. Here’s a book for American cities to use for inspiration.
“It is all about the redemocratization and reallocation of our urban space… we need to bend over backwards to make our streets safe for all users, including those who wish to cycle. Reluctantly squeezing the bicycle into a car-centric Matrix serves very few. A massive effort to redemoctratize our streets is the greatest urban challenge we face.”
Mikael Colville-Andersen “has become a phenomenon, speaking everywhere and running a consultancy with offices around the world, and he has put his thoughts into a book, Copenhagenize- the definitive guide to global bicycle urbanism.”
