The basic idea is that if a street serves only cars, it's not complete- it also needs to serve pedestrians, bicyclists, transit, disabled people, the elderly, children, and maybe even have traffic calming, ecological landscaping, or other features. Complete Streets is context-sensitive and is a good way for permaculturists to start a conversation with local government and planners. There are some grants and state funding available for Complete Streets projects.

There were plenty of examples of bike lanes done fairly well, though in my quick look, I didn't see any bike lanes with protective curbs as they have in Europe (I think).
Also from the slideshow:
Every trip starts and ends with walking.
