Listen to the story here.

The positive health, environmental and even economic impact of biking is well documented.  But safety concerns keep many people off their bikes.  A recent study from the University of British Columbia found that installing bike infrastructure greatly reduces the likelihood of cyclist injury.

On a recent episode of KCUR-FM’s Central Standard, Elizabeth Bejan of Revolve KC; Aaron Bartlett, a bicycle and training coordinator at MARC; and Deb Ridgeway, bicycle/pedestrian coordinator for Kansas City Public Works Department; explore cycling risks in Kansas City and how organizations and the city are working to address them.

KCUR-FM is a service of the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
