Indianapolis is getting a lot of attention lately after Streetfilms did this great feature about the new Indianapolis Cultural Trail. The Cultural Trail is a bicycle and pedestrian trail, designed to maximize safety for cyclists and pedestrians, that connects many of Indianapolis’ cultural areas. One of the things mentioned in the video was that the creators felt that in order to change people’s behavior, they needed to go big and bold. They didn’t opt for just adding some bike lanes, they went with entirely separated paths, when possible, to maximize enjoyment and safety. The Cultural Trail also connects to bike lanes, other trails, and greenways. The emphasis was really on increasing quality of life and improving economic development, and it seems to be working. Check it out and learn more in the video!
