The Basic Goals of One City's Bicycle Program

Jeff Girard just passed on this site about Seattle's bicycle program. The goals are their "Urban Trails System" are as follows:
  • "Facilitate bicycling as a viable transportation choice;

  • Afford citizens the opportunity to experience the City's unique scenic and natural amenities;

  • Provide access to healthful recreational activities; and

  • Link major parks and open spaces with Seattle neighborhoods."
Not outrageous goals, right? And I bet they don't have the public right-of-ways in place from drainage canals that we do. Bless our bayous!
