"Just lines on a map" is one of the harsh critiques to the Kansas City plan to make the area more bike friendly.

That critique was part of the city audit that showed the plan needed to be more thought out.

City leaders hope the plan will be in by 2018, with the goal of making KC more bike friendly.

One of the steps is installing branded bike racks all over the city. They are already in place near Martini corner and 19th and Monroe.



Another step is getting more public feedback. There will be a series of meetings where anyone can give advice on how to make KC more bike friendly.
