Is there any resource on which mayoral candidate is most friendly towards building bike lanes?

Specifically, I see Gainey has some lip service towards mobility and vision zero, but I’m not sure how serious he is about making Pittsburgh connected.

Any resources you can share?

Well, if you waste much time on the web, or lurking around comment sections you will find a large number of a particular portion of the population referring to our current Mayor as Bike Lane Billy. I have not seen this kind of label applied to any other politicians.

If you are just looking at bicycling infrastructure, Peduto certainly is on board with looking out for us as far as infrastructure goes.  I have been concerned about his stance on how people drive and with all the ATV’s, dirt bikes and whatever else running around our streets, but that is a tradeoff.

I don’t have a strong opinion on who the mayor is however and just hope they see the benefits to riding a bicycle safety in our city.

IIRC, almost all of the cagers calling for Bike Lane Billy to be voted out were from the suburbs and will not be voting.
