Right now is a good time to discuss these issues because ACHD and the City of Boise are going through their Downtown Boise Implementation Plan where they are contemplating 2 way streets, bike lanes, and a more pedestrian friendly downtown. This open house will be on June 6th, and if you're into downtown Boise, go and voice your thoughts.
During April's presentation and discussion, she handed out a Bicycle Friendly Business Districts Ideas sheet, which has numerous great ideas (e.g. bike valets, more bike racks, bike shares, bike maps, better bike safety, etc.) on helping the bicycle community. I think we could implement many of these ideas for little to no cost and really improve our bike-ability.
All in all, April showed many examples how bicycling is not only good for your health, but it's also good for the pocket book of the riders and the businesses they frequent.
