Portland Cycle Tracks and Buffered Bike Lanes

The streets in most cities currently work fine for people who are comfortable riding bicycles in mixed traffic. However, my designs are intended to make bicycling more comfortable for the majority of cyclists who are not comfortable riding under such conditions. Analysis indicates that most cyclists/potential cyclists would use a bicycle much more often than they currently do if they didn’t have to mix so much with automobiles. A cycle track provides that opportunity and is one of the reasons that bicycling is so well-used in cities that have features such as these facilities.
