The 1st issue tracked public funding for bike lanes, explores social media as a crime deterrent, and interviews people who make their living on bikes.

From a review in the Philly Bike Journal:

There were two articles that really stood out for me. The first “The Citizen’s Guide to Philadelphia Bike Laws” was a wonderful tongue in cheek explanation of the various bicycle laws on the books in the state of Pennsylvania. How many times have you seen a cycling advocacy group quote a cycling regulation and then explain it in such a way that it still does not make sense? Not in this article. With each regulation listed there was a translated reply that explained things in clear English, often with a sense of humor.

The second , “How Many Governments Does it Take to Build a Bike Lane”. We’ve all seen triumphal announcements when shiny new bike lanes are installed. This article explores how and where the money for a bike lane comes from. At the Federal, State, and local government levels. If you really want to see what it takes to build a bike lane then this is the article for you.
