"Interesting but it depends a bit on what they do. Details seem scant.  SUMMARY Shared cycling / walking paths often don't lend themselves to great commuting.  Dedicated paths are good. "

Pete, there are different ways of promoting cycling: reporting hazards, bike co-op and organising rides. Yesterday I did the twilight ride of 35km, plus my ride there and back. Currently I do not cycle far or fast.
