James >> if systems are designed to ensure cyclists safety, and more people cycle, then they will discover the benefit and keep on doing it.

If cyclists stick to bike paths, cars and trucks won't have to worry about slow moving, hard to see cyclists, which will make their driving experience more enjoyable.

>> Inhibiting new energy sources, "what".

If cyclists don't consume gasoline, this keeps prices oil prices down, which makes investments into alternative energy sources, such as solar, hydrogen, biofuel, etc, less profitable, As a result, there will be less investment into next generation energy sources, which will slow their introduction into the marketplace.

In effect, by trying to "save the world", cyclists will actually be extending the lifespan of the "oil economy". In this regard, cyclists will be responsible for delaying the very progress they want to see take shape.
