I think, costs aside, that bike paths make so much sense. The air is polluted; more bikes means less pollution. Inactivity is killing us; more bikes mean healthier citizens. Healthier citizens means less stress on the health care system. And the 12-year old mentioned above will be safer in a laneway dedicated to bike use, although admittedly, I don't think I've seen anyone younger than, say, 14 years old on a main street (thankfully). And all this, coming from a dramatic sigh-er when stuck behind a bike. :) Not having bike lanes isn't working. It's not safe for the bikers, and causes unneccessary road rage. And, hey, wouldn't that dovetail nicely with the Velodrome culture! Can we be City-wide bike-lane ready by 2015?
