It can be a compromise or "middle ground" decision that shifts the momentum back towards a positive social impact and once that movement begins hopefully inertia takes over and bigger and better ideas can be implemented.

Guess what, Kiely? You're not actually talking about 'middle ground' here, you're talking about incrementalism, which is something I think most of us can buy into, and in fact has been the city's approach to the creation of bike lanes to date. Of course, as we can see, even the incremental introduction of bike lanes will never please the Donald J. Lesters and A Smiths of this world. This doesn't mean that the correct position is halfway between a continuous bike lane network and the big ol' goose egg that DJL and AS would like to see, it just means that we keep plugging away as you suggest, until we've won over the timid yet rational.
