Last week we put out a call to readers and members of the Streetsblog Network for photos of bike traffic. We got a ton of great responses, and in the slide show below, you'll see what our readers are seeing around the country: bikes in action, and in growing numbers.
We've squirreled away some of what you sent for future slide shows on other themes.
Speaking of which, here's what we're looking for next: We all know that cars take up a lot of space. A lot more space than any other form of transportation. We want your photos of cars hogging space in your communities -- graphic examples of how they crowd out other users.
We know you see this stuff every day. Shoot it, send it to us, and we'll share it with all our readers.
Send JPEGs to me at sarah [at] streetsblog [dot] org. If you want, you can tag submissions with "streetsblog" on Flickr, but it's still a good idea to send me an e-mail to alert me to what you think are your best shots.
Can't wait to see what you've got!
Great to see more bikes on the road in the Land of the Hummer and the Home of the 4x4. Even here in Europe where bikes have been big for a while, (it's all those narrow streets) they're increasing in popularity. Does anyone know which city in the States might be considered the capital of pedal power?
I think Portland and Davis are really leading the way in the United States.
