From an earlier comment at another thread:

“Dunedin city councillor Kate Wilson explains why change can be good and why she strongly supports cycleway developments.”
—[crowd guffaw] “In the past, I have been cynical about the “build it and they will come” claim for other projects, but the research and local statistics on cycleways show this to be true at a local level.” (ODT)
