Abbreviated version of the 2023 TEAMS Essay prompt:
"Bicycles can be an effective way to move from one place to another, especially in cities. As electric bikes (e-bikes) and bike-share programs have become more commonplace in municipalities, bicycling has grown into a popular mode of transportation for both locals and tourists.
However, with the increase in bicycle ridership have come concerns - in particular, safety on roadways busy with cars and trucks, and safety on pavement and paths active with pedestrians. Some cities have designated bike lanes in high traffic and pedestrian areas, but safety for all who share these byways still is an ongoing challenge.
Your team has been tasked to prepare a proposal that addresses bicycle safety and the promotion of increased bicycle use (such as for exercise, commuting, outdoor exploration) for all ages in a city/town of your choice."
