Hello again. My name is Elena and I live in the fairly urban city of Houston, Texas. I like to use my bicycle as transportation, but when there is no sidewalk commute can be a bit dangerous. I feel like biking lanes on our highways and roads are a great solution. In addition to reducing carbon emissions bike lanes would decrease traffic on roads. It would definitely be a time consuming and expensive process, but I think in the end it would pay off. When I calculated my carbon footprint I was shocked to find out that the average Texan’s transportation footprint is 6387kg. Maybe if we invested in bike lanes we could change that. What do you all think about instituting bicycling lanes?

Hello! In my city, there are bike lanes in the roads and some bike paths to make it safer for people who want to travel that way. Just think if there were an equal amount of bike paths to roads! Do you think this would help people realise that there are other commuting options that don’t emit carbon into our atmospere?
At home, my main form of transportation is a car. I live in a country area, making it difficult to use my bike for any kind of travel (everything is too spaced out). Two years ago I went to France and was really impressed by/excited to use their public transportation system.
