Opinion: Quality infrastructure will pay dividends
Edmonton Journal
In the late 1990s, when I was a twentysomething undergrad at the University of Alberta, my bike was my car, providing me with a cheap, efficient, and fun way to get around. I'd ride to class on residential streets, down back alleys to do my shopping, and duck down to the river valley when I could. While I enjoyed the beauty of those wooded multi-use trails, there was another reason I loved to ride there — that carefree feeling of cycling in a safe space, separated from cars.
