Everyone wins from cycling, even those that won’t ever cycle.

Our lives are full of people complaining about cyclists.

Yet this excellent post Take Away Space From Cars to Reduce Congestion For All includes these essential reminders:

  • It [Cycling] is here that there is the greatest unmet demand.  It’s also incredibly cheap compared to other ways of moving people around and provides paybacks in the region of 40:14:1 just from the health benefits.
  • Building cycle infrastructure is what’s best for those people who will never travel by any other way than driving too
  • Everyone wins from cycling, even those that won’t ever cycle.
  • The argument that says that where we have a limited resource (in this case, space) that we should prioritise use of it for the least efficient use of that resource (cars) is fundamentally flawed.

Read the post and get everyone else to read it too.

Investment in making Cycling feel safe is a huge win for everyone!
