This type of article makes my day. Because it takes the accepted wisdom of the day for many professionals, that being the importance of master plans, and puts it on its head. My own accepted wisdom included. Excellent piece Ryan.

What you said about state of the art cycling infrastructure applies to the planning process as well. I think the Pedestrian Mobility Plan shows that professionals are starting to recognize that restrictive planning documents like Shifting Gears are obsolete and "routine accommodation" is the wave of the future. Since Shifting Gears is now five years old, it should be coming up for a review (five years being the standard time frame for a review of a planning document of this sort). I think the push can start now to completely overhaul and update Shifting Gears for its 2014 edition.
