    @winterbourne and @toosmartforyou, you have it backwards. As the article pointed out, bicycles are underutilized because of the lack of safe routes available. In cities like Boulder, Sacramento, or Davis where there are good bike routes, biking is popular. In cities without good bicycle infrastructure, fewer bikes are on the road because of the safety factor.

    Thet poverty of critical thinking in this proposal is astounding beyond description.

    Even back in the late 60's, early 70's when I attended BYU 900 East was a difficult street to negotiate by vehicle. And now they want to take it, along with other other major streets like University, Geneva Road, Freedom Blvd (200 West), etc and add bicycles? They should look at 500 East, 100 west, 600 north,etc. Get the bikes on roads that aren't packed with cars!!!

    Where I live now people want to ride bikes on US 89 and then wonder why they are placing their lives in jeopardy.

    Get the bikes on seldom-used roads and don't mix them with cars on the major collectors and thoroughfares. DUH!!

    This surely must be government thinking again.

    we don't need bike lanes. of the ones created in salt lake hardly anyone uses them at all and they have cut 4 lane roads down to 2 lanes restricting traffic and slowing everyone down and cause unneeded gas guzzling traffic jams. stop bowing to the lunatics who thing global warming is real because it's been proven by real science to be false. leave our roads alone.
