Well...from my own experience coming from a middle/working class family...most of the cost of getting through university, as well as the freedom to live and spend as a teenager came thanks to having the ability to cycle to my part-time job at Mickey D's. My parents were too busy working to pay the bills to drive me everywhere, so for me, cycling was my way obtaining freedom.

The kind of parents I had were the kind of parents who believed in hard work, and giving a young person enough freedom to create his own destiny. Thanks to that part-time job, that education it enabled and several years of, their trust paid off OK.

Of course in the mid 80's, traffic was not what it is now. However it is my hope that today's teens are able to take advantage of the opportunities that I had. If bike lanes help do that, I'm all for it.
