Raleigh poised to become bike-friendly?

The bike stories just keep coming. The headline of today's post was lifted from a story on page 1 of today's News & Observer.

The first three paragraphs:

After years of feeling shoved to the Capital City's curb, bicyclists are seeing things start to roll their way.

Just this week, the Raleigh City Council endorsed a plan to add separate bike lanes as part of the $9.9 million makeover of Hillsborough Street.

A few blocks away, in downtown Raleigh, a bicycle-share program could be up and running within months.

And if the money materializes, city staff members have a wish list of 25 streets that would get bike lanes or widened shoulders to make things easier on cyclists trying to commute.
