As more turn to bicycling for more than just recreation, city and regional planners are rethinking roadways to accomodate all those using bikes to get to work, shopping, and to each other.

The best cycling cities (see here for Bicycle mag's top fifty list - my city came in at #34, but the ManMade/Curbly HQ in Minneapolis/St. Paul scored #1) have already been implementing lots of choice options. AOL's Rented Spaces has assembled a cool list of innovative tactics, including bike lane and sharing programs, and my favorite, the bike box, cycle triggerable traffic light programs already established in Portland.
