Future best bicycling city - Columbus, Ohio

From Bicycling magazine:

Columbus, Ohio
What happens when you cross a citywide fitness initiative, Commit to be Fit, with an environmentally friendly "green pact" signed by the mayor? A sudden interest in bikes. Columbus is working on its first bike master plan since 1993, and every indication is that it's going to be a whopper. Mayor Michael Coleman has already pledged $50 million for bike and pedestrian transportation and has linked the bike plan with the city's 2012 bicentennial by naming it the Bicentennial Bikeways Plan.

You beat me to it... I've been carrying that issue of bicycling around in my pannier for two weeks now waiting for an opportunity to drop that into the blogging conversation!

It's exciting to see us mentioned... but I wonder how our challenges compare to those of other cities (myopic driver-oriented city engineers, etc.).
