The cities of Urbana and Champaign have been working the past several months to produce a video to introduce the public to the bicycle infrastructure that is being installed around both cities and to teach motorists and bicyclists how to interact with each other on the road. This video was shot, edited and produced locally by Urbana Public Television, led by Jason Liggett.
