Reason for Support #53: “If you build it….”

Those opposed to the Plan have stated they don’t believe that people will ride bikes if the bike lanes and sharrows start appearing. They shoot down the hypothetical “If you build it, they will come.”

To that I say, “Did you actually read the Plan? I know it’s long, but there are pictures. Here’s a screenshot from the Plan, APPENDIX A.”

Support for “If you build it…” can be found in APPENDIX A, page A-5 of the Hike & Bike Plan. Click here to go to that section.
