Minuteman Bikeway
The country’s 500th rail-trail continues to grow in popularity. The 10-mile Minuteman Commuter Bikeway was built in 1992 over the “rail-banked” Lexington Branch railroad corridor between Bedford and West Cambridge, Massachusetts, which passes through suburban Lexington and Arlington long the way. The trail received its name from the fact that it closely follows the path of the colonial Minutemen during the Battle of 1775. The Minuteman Bikeway is paved with asphalt and is 12 feet wide. Permitted uses include walking, cycling and inline skating. During winter months, the corridor is often traversed by cross-country skiers.

Bikes in Cities
The traditional city urban transport planning process has given rise to transport systems that result in higher car ownership, more and longer trips and less public transport. This has brought about community costs in terms of road fatalities and injuries, congestion, large capital investment, high personal transport costs and environmental degradation.

Many cities in the world today are looking at enhancing their sustainability … by including cycling and walking as part of their integrated transportation strategies.

AUGUST 2010 News – Australia became the first country to make riding without a helmet illegal in 1991. Chris Rissel, from Sydney University’s School of Public Health, says that helmets are creating a barrier to cycling, particularly spontaneous, short-trip cycling. In the ABC feature says that the Melbourne bike hire scheme – it’s not working as well as it has in the rest of the world “because people don’t walk around with a helmet just in case.”
