Some cities work for many years to do what New Orleans has done since 2012.
Almost without the rest of the country noticing, the Big Easy has rapidly become one of the nation's leading cities for bike transportation. About one in 30 local residents now gets to work by bike, double the rate from 2007 and sixth highest rate among large U.S. cities, right between Seattle and Oakland.
The city's new goal is to double its biking rate again over the next three years — in the central neighborhoods where 10 percent or more of residents already bike to work.
