That is a joke of a paper that reads like a childs school project. It seems clear to me that it is written by bureaucrats who have no interest in cycling and just had to do a report so VIC looks like it is doing something.
Their idea of encouraging more people to ride:Cyclists can be given better information, including maps of recreational rail trails, on-road bike lanes or off-road trails and information on end-of-trip facilities. Making this information more easily accessible may encourage more Victorians to ride.
Does the improving Victoria's Road Network have similar tripe? Does the government hand out maps and parking maps to encourage more motorists to use the road network? Build sensible and practical infrastructure and people will use it. This happens with rail infrastructure, motoring infrastructure and cycling infrastructure. Guess which one of these is the most expensive for carrying capacity?
