Unfortunately more urban planning is bike un-friendly.
I remember years ago when at my university the child of one one of our board of regents was hit and badly injured by a cyclist. Prior to that people rode all over but after this cycling was banned on campus. Traffic was bad around campus and people complained about cyclists so they made bidirectional bike lanes that cyclists were required to use that used up a lane but were useless because they were too narrow and cars and bussed were always in them dropping off or picking up students. Between banning cycling on campus and having unusable bike lanes they effectively eliminated cycling.
The error in most urban planning is that they see cyclists as a problem instead of a solution.
