Good Cycling IDEAs

Back in this urban dumplings about all things bikes, I pointed out an article about Montréal's BIXI, a 3,000 unit bike-sharing program (see the Globe's "The new key to the city: bikes") This week BIXI received an IDEA - International Design Excellence Award for ease of use.
Another item from blog entries past is the LightLane - a device that uses a lazer to project the image of a bike lane onto the roadway behind a cyclist, giving the effect taht wherever they are they are, indeed, travelling in a bike lane. It too received an IDEA.

It's an interesting list of items. to see the full 2009 list cehck out the IDEA page.
