CLEVELAND, Ohio – Jacob VanSickle scoffs at winter. A year-round cyclist, he dons cold weather gear nearly every day, snaps on his helmet and mounts the saddle of his Civia-Bryant to commute to work as director of Bike Cleveland, the city’s leading advocacy group for cyclists.

His job puts him in an ideal position to evaluate the city’s 2011 Complete and Green Streets Ordinance, a key piece of legislation aimed at transforming public rights-of-way to make them friendlier for transit, pedestrians, bicyclists and the environment.
