What’s Velo?

Vélo is the French word for bike.

Mission

Thanks for visiting VeloTraffic. I hope you find the information collected here useful and interesting.

The purpose of this blog is to collect and publish information about the engineering, planning, and public policy side of cycling. VeloTraffic will contain everything from publicizing planning efforts, evaluating existing or proposed designs, or discussing laws and public policies.  In addition, I hope to encouraging the development of safe cycling facilities.

Because I live and work in Minneapolis, MN, many of the specific examples will be local.  However, I try to frame the discussion in such a way that those who don’t have any knowledge of (or interest in) the local cycling scene can still participate in the discussion.

The views expressed on VeloTraffic are my own and do not necessarily represent the views or opinions of my employer.
