The Green Lane Project is working to build more bike lanes for cyclists.

Through the support of the Green Lane Project, an initiative that aims to bring more bike-friendly infrastructure to cities across the country, the District is starting the planning process for new lanes for cyclists.

They're mapped along L and M Streets, NW, and 1st Street as well as near Union Station.

To help fund the effort, D.C has received grants from the bicycle nonprofit, Bikes Belong Foundation. The new bike lanes are expected to be in place within the next two years.

Bicycling Magazine recently named the District as the fourth best city for bicyclists.
