I was disappointed today to read comments from the NRMA that money spent on cycleways was money wasted. More of the article is here . When you contrast the positive efforts in many European countries (and even Melbourne) to develop cycling infrastructure, with this attitude, the NRMA really begins to look more backward than most motoring organisations.
As a motorist as well as a cyclist, I am very happy that Local and State Government are investing in cycling infrastructure, especially in conjunction with massive capital projects. I can only applaud this commitment to encrouraging cycling and urge further funding to these important projects in the future.
