  • Cycling Lessons Learned From Amsterdam That No One Talks About - Spacing Vancouver
    type of thinking is what led us to our current state of affairs where we built big and wide to accommodate and prioritize the automobile We must not lose sight of other tools at our disposal which can help achieve the same results Only 50 of the cycling routes in the Netherlands are separated from vehicular traffic According to the C R O W Manual the Dutch only use separated or protected cycling lanes when the traffic volumes and speeds are sufficiently high enough to pose a threat to the lives of people cycling Alternatively the Dutch use painted bike lanes shared streets and woonerfs a residential version of the shared street In all cases the Dutch ensure that the physical design of the street only tolerates a safe vehicle speed they do not rely on suggestive tools such as posted speed limits 4 Retail streets still survive and in fact thrive A separated bike lane next to retail Most businesses in North America oppose adding bike lanes in front of their businesses for fear of losing driving customers There is a misconception that customers access their business overwhelmingly by vehicle But businesses often over estimate how many of their customers drive The businesses in Amsterdam not only survive with a bike lane in front of their business but they thrive as the bike lanes enliven the sidewalk and their storefronts It is important to point out that one concern of businesses may have some merit parking must be maintained as explained by the next point 5 Parking and vehicular access is provided on almost all retail streets On street parking is maintained on a neighbourhood retail street With the provision of on street parking on almost all retail streets in Amsterdam it is clear that providing access for vehicles is still important Parking is also critical for providing access for deliveries of supplies This way all modes of transportation can access the businesses safely and comfortably maximizing the potential patrons for businesses 6 Bike lanes do not prevent crucial business deliveries Deliveries being made from side street parking As mentioned above by maintaining on street parking on retail streets access for loading and unloading is still provided for delivery trucks without having them block traffic by double parking in the travel lane In addition to this large vehicles can be found in most places in Amsterdam 7 Street widths in Amsterdam are comparable to North America An attractive retail complete street with two bi directional bike lanes generous sidewalks two lanes of trams and several vehicular lanes Often the excuse in North America is that there is no room on the streets for bike lanes The streets in Amsterdam have comparable widths but can still accommodate a complete street including wide sidewalks patios two cycling lanes two parking lanes and two lanes of traffic Even larger streets accommodate at least two lanes of transit and transit stops 8 Transit stops and bike lanes can mix A floating tram stop
