Clearing a Path for Bikes in City Office Buildings

New York Times, December 8
Author: Susan Stellin

Bikes will soon become a more familiar sight around office cubicles in New York City.

Passed in July, the law aims to encourage bicycle commuting by eliminating worries about the security of street parking.
