Seattle Times letters to the editor

Bike Master Plan is a waste of money

Cycling will never be a significant part of the transportation picture

The mayor’s office has issued its recommended final draft of the Bike Master Plan. The plan proposes to spend a half-billion dollars for bike infrastructure and programs [“Downtown Seattle cycle track could be Ed Murray’s first big bike test,” Online, Nov. 21].

Do the citizens of Seattle support spending this amount of our scarce transportation tax dollars on facilities that serve such a tiny fraction of the population, while at the same time creating more traffic congestion? Cycling might be a nice-sounding green concept, but in a city of hills and rain it is never going to be a significant part of the transportation picture. Are we going to sit politely by while City Hall throws this money down its politically correct rabbit hole?

— Dick Schwartz, Seattle
