    Bicycles need to finally get recognition for their usefulness. Their application in terms of transportation, recreation, and even competition need not be overlooked. I appreciate the appeal for leaders to engage and promote cycling. We look up to our leaders, that's why we've elected them. If we see them give examples of themselves and recognize bicycles' uses, why, then, wouldn't we follow up?

    I guess most people forget how convenient bikes are. For one they don't need as much infrastructure as a car, and they don't produce emissions whatsoever. Anyone can have a bike since they're much cheaper. In hindsight it makes more sense to just ride a bike or walk when traveling a short distance; unless otherwise.

    I very much appreciate the idea of making bicycles out of bamboo, which also creates employment for uneducated women. Not only is it an interesting and creative idea, but it's also very resourceful and an opportunity opener, somewhat killing two birds with one stone.However, as amazing as this is, how durable is the bamboo bike? How much weight can it sustain, and what about in strong whether conditions? I'm very curious as to how far the bamboo bike will influence the biking community and if it will become marketable in other countries. If so, I think it would catch the eyes of those even outside the interest field (such as myself), seeing the determination of those bringing cycling into everyone's life. People want to see how big an idea will go before they become a part of it, and I for one want to see this go as big as possible. With a new invention calling for attention, many events can be held for its honor, sponsoring the health and importance of cycling.

    I agree, the cycling trend should supported as much as possible. I also think that the states should put more money into extending roads to make room for bike lanes everywhere. Many more people including myself would commute with a bike If the trip was not so hazardess with cars zooming by you. Cycling is a great way to lower emissions and keep people in good health. Overall, this article was well written and should be read by many others to get the point across.
