The minority bicycling preferences were the focus of a new study conducted by Anne Lusk of the harvard School of Public Health. Results highlight preferences across different racial groups that should impact bikeway design. For example, people of color were more likely than white people to favor indoor bicycle parking and bicycling with family and friends.

Andrew McFarland, community engagement manager at the LivableStreets Alliance adds “The bottom line of Anne’s research is that everyone wants and deserves safe biking infrastructure. Good street design is the ultimate guarantee for better ensuring traffic safety.”
