  28. 28. Cycling Issues● As of 2012, just 35% of commuters traveling to school or work are bicyclists from 37% in 2009.● Use of Helmets -> False sense of security -> Higher number of accidents● Only 37% being satisfied with the facilities● New bicycle scheme will not be implemented in 2013 due to funding
  29. 29. Conclusion Basis for Success: Others areadopting similar planning strategies
