Make room for all bikes
John Howard suggests that bike paths need not be planned for commuters, but only for recreational users [Bike paths require better planning, April 9 Letters, Langley Advance].
While I applaud his suggestions to have more recreational bike paths â€“ Campbell Valley, perhaps? â€“ I donâ€™t agree that those who cycle to work need to pay the price with unsafe bike lanes. â€¯â€¯
In order to help ease the traffic problems, I suggest every street be made one-way, giving the extra lane to cyclists.
I mean, really, just because you can bully me with your box of steel on wheels doesnâ€™t mean you have the right to do so.
There you go, the planning is done. Now just do it!
