Two bicycle shops in the City of Albany are using their business goodwill to encourage customer support of Protected Bicycle Lanes as a key element in the Madison Avenue Traffic Calming project.
At the invitation of the owner, the Protected Bicycle Lane Coalition placed a petition “stand” at the Downtube Bicycle Works. The petition reads: “We, the undersigned, urge the City of Albany to include protected bicycle lanes in the upcoming infrastructure and traffic calming improvements on Madison Avenue. Protected Bicycle Lanes will welcome people on bicycles to Madison Avenue. They will make the street safer for all who use it – those in cars, on foot, in buses, and on bicycles.”
The manager of Broadway Bicycle Co. also agreed to host a “stand.”
The Protected Bicycle Lane Coalition appreciates greatly the support of these shops, if you are interested in signing the petition, why not stop in for a visit? At this time of year, you will find a more relaxed pace in the shops giving you an opportunity to assess their wares and get answers to your questions and service needs.
You are also encouraging to “friend” Protected Bicycle Lanes on Madison Ave. on Facebook.
Madison Avenue Traffic Calming is the only major bicycle infrastructure improvement in the city that is funded – it’s going to happen. Your support to make Protected Bicycle Lanes integral to this project is essential to make this critical uptown/downtown link a reality.
