Cycle lanes a welcome upgrade

Rob Pompe, Somerset West

City of Cape Town cycle lanes have raised interesting comments. I recall, going back more than 50 years, my cycling days back in the then Rhodesia, cycle lanes where common and how they contributed to safe cycling. It is understandable if some miss the safety benefits the lanes provide.

However, for those who cycle, in the Western Cape, they are privileged through such upgrades. It is well known there are many pressing needs, how wonderful it is for all to witness the needs of everyone being met gradually. We are in progress mode; let’s embrace it.
