Cycle highways are a sticking point. The routes and paths must be designed correctly. The commuter rides quickly and will only stop when they must. The commuter requires good quality, smooth, safe and well-maintained paths, that provide direct, low gradient routes, and can be used in all weather (even after heavy rains) and times of day (safe at night). “Cycle highways“ are swept and cleared of debris. For construction sites, a safe and easy temporary path is provided to get around it. We cannot expect people otherwise to leave their car at home.
