Building on the momentum of our completed Green Lane Project, the Big Jump Project is helping 10 cities radically reimagine their bicycling infrastructure, while at the same time helping to propel communities nationwide into a better future for biking. Over the course of the next three years, the combination of quickly connected biking networks and the use of smart outreach encouraging people to ride more, will illustrate the ways in which U.S. cities and towns can tap into bicycles to improve the health and vitality of their communities.
The initiative, which aims to double or triple bike ridership in specific neighborhoods, hopes to prove that when cities make smart changes, more people ride bikes, and communities become better places to live, work and play.
