Donald Trump really hasn’t said much about cycling.
The 1.8-mile inaugural procession down Pennsylvania Avenue dates back to Thomas Jefferson’s second inauguration in 1805. The iconic boulevard has changed a lot since then, of course — and that goes for recent years, as well — as a bike lane was installed down the center of the street in 2010. Now it’s Trump’s turn.
DC city officials have worked with urban planners from Denmark to build up the city’s cycling infrastructure and culture. Today, Washington has about 70 miles of dedicated bike lanes, and 4.5 percent of commuters in DC bike to work. Fifteen years ago, that number was less than 1 percent.
