– excellent look at the benefits of giving cyclists some protection when cyclists, pedestrians  and motorists share the road

– keeping cyclists safe with segregated lanes and making bikes widely available at low cost – the Bixis in Montreal or the Velibs in Paris – are the two basic conditions that allow for the growth of bicycle commuting instead of the continual increase in vehicular  traffic in the downtowns of many cities- and the hazardous air pollution that comes with this.

Paris aims to reduce traffic by 40% by encouraging cycling. Amsterdam and Copenhagen are already there.
