Ya, to be honest I'm not 100% sure it will hold either moylek, but getting kids and especially whole families biking is still a good thing. Whether or not it keeps kids biking into adulthood does remain to be seen though. The "uncool" thing may still be a factor for some given the NA culture of the car.

But I do agree with what others have said, it has to start somewhere, and building a bike network that promotes activity while (hopefully) allowing people to realise a viable alternative to the car is available, easily accessible, convenient, etc... is still a good thing. Even if some kids still won't get off their butts and put down the videogame controller to use it. Which I assume is at least part of what you were referring to when you said you have other ideas why kids don't ride bikes anymore?
