Protesters demand safer bike lanes in Center City

CENTER CITY (WPVI) -- Dozens of protesters took a stand in Center City Philadelphia to demand safer, protected bike lanes.

Supporters lined up Monday morning along 13th Street just south of Pine.

They stood between the cycling and driving lanes to represent where protective barriers would go.

The morning protest is in response to the death of a cyclist last month at 11th and Spruce streets.
