I completely agree. This year I've seen more bikes on the road than at any point in the past. There is a bike rack outside of my place of employment. For years it has been empty, maybe one bike. Now the rack is full, every nice day from late March until the snow falls. This has happened during the past 2 years. These are not homeless or low income individuals either. Most are post secondary graduates who are young and can't afford to buy a new car, insurance, gas and maintenance not to mention rent and school loans. Even on my way to work, the bike lanes on our local road are well used. Take a look at the HSR buses, most have a bike or more in the rack out front during the day. We need to start making provisions for this type of transportation AND start educating car drivers to watch for bikes. How many people have been hit by cars this year? This isnt' a trend, it's the way of the future.
