Don't give the authorities the impression

that more roads are all that's necessary

to keep the people happy.

Remind those in power that better facilities

and greater safety for non-polluting bikers

can also win votes. 


Not that I think cycle paths are the best answer to cyclists' needs.

Or that a desire for greater safety implies that cycling is dangerous.

But for cyclists who have not yet acquired the self confidence needed to occupy

the road space that they have a right to use,

off-road bike paths are a way of encouraging more people into the saddle.

When cyclists are of a sufficient number -- as they are in the Netherlands --

they will be recognized as citizens

with a right to share the roads

that their taxes have paid for.
