Thanks for cycling lane
THE EDITOR: I publicly thank Ministers Rambachan, Cadiz and Hadeed for their great enthusiasm towards launching the bike lane around the Queen’s Park Savannah, Port-of-Spain, a long overdue project, in record time.
We the members of the committee, Roger Gibbon, Gene Samuel, Sheldon Waithe and myself, were also overwhelmed to see the additional support given by the Ministers of Sport, Health, Youth Affairs and Culture.
We now look forward to our bike lane becoming a truly safe riding facility where cyclists can train as well as a place where the entire family can cycle on a weekend.
We are also very pleased to hear of Rambachan’s intention to establish a safe lane for cyclists in certain areas as well as in all our cities, boroughs and large towns which identify an appropriate venue for a bike lane.
As Michael Philips pointed out, all efforts towards promoting cycling within our cities will have a positive impact on our green contribution.
We also thank Robert Faria for the Cycling Federation’s support as exhibited by the overwhelming turnout of cyclists from all over Trinidad for the launch of the pilot project.
