The kids at Streetsblog are liveblogging today's announcement by the city promising 200 miles of new on-street bicycle facilities (paths, lanes and routes) over the next four years. That breaks down to 70 new miles in fiscal year '07, 70 new miles in fiscal year '08, and 40 miles of new greenways in city parks over the next four years. (Location details are still to come, as is proper math.) Notes a commenter, "This is great news. I am waiting for a piano to fall on my head now." As are we. As are we.
