NEW YORK (AP) - New York City officials say the city’s network of bicycle lanes and paths has reached 1,000 miles.

They said Tuesday the Department of Transportation is installing 12 miles of protected bike lanes in 2015 alone.

One new bike lane will be installed on Sixth Avenue between 14th and 33rd streets.

Elected officials joined Transportation Commissioner Polly Trottenberg and Parks Commissioner Mitchell Silver to announce the 1,000th mile of bike lanes.

City Council member Margaret Chin said every trip made by a bicycle takes a car off the city’s roads and contributes to a cleaner environment for all New Yorkers.
