Interesting read on a bicycling path system that is intended to keep cycling traffic separate from auto traffic, because this is the most desired feature people want. This is super important to reflect–I’d rather not cycle around cars myself, who would? Projects like this need to get started in order to demonstrate their necessity.
The more people bicycle, the more other people in cars think its possible to bicycle, too. The more people bicycle, the more drivers learn to see and respect bicyclists. So until you vote tax money into a cycling super highway, bicycling might just remain territory for the courageous.
