May 7th, 2014 by  

They don’t get as much love here on CleanTechnica as electric cars get, but they’re even greener, and growth in the industry has also been strong. With the latest announcement from the US Department of Transportation, it looks like 6 big cities are about to get a boost in bicycle-oriented infrastructure and thus bicycling for transportation purposes.
