CLEVELAND -- A new plan could bring more than 70 miles of new bikeways to the city.

The city says it has seen a 200 percent increase in cyclists in the last five years and this plan will help meet the demand.

Jim Sheehan, the director of the Ohio City Bike Co-op, and Jacob VanSicle, the executive director for Bike Cleveland, joined us Tuesday night to give us some input.

An update of Cleveland's bikeway plan, introduced Sunday at the Bike Cleveland annual meeting, showed almost 45 miles of bikeways added over the next two years, and another 25.6 miles in the following two years.

That would mean adding 70 miles of bikeways by the end of 2017.
