We're not the only city where bikes and cars are at war: the Bloomberg administration in New York has vastly expanded the bike lanes in the city to about 250 miles worth, and some residents are up in arms over losing roadway to bikes. A proposed 2-mile-long bike lane was recently nixed on Staten Island amid complaints from residents, and last year Hasidic Jews in Brooklyn waged a battle against a 14-block bike lane that was added along Bedford Avenue, and has since been removed. "It takes some adjustment, and we’re definitely in that adjustment phase," says Paul White, executive director of a bicycle advocacy group.
