Some of you may have seen US DOT Secretary Mary Peters on the Newshour on PBS last night. She outraged me when she said the problem wasn't too little money for transportation, but that too much of the money is spent on things like "bike paths and trails" instead of transportation infrastructure.
You can find a transcript here: http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/trans...ure_08-15.html
The top transportation official in America obviously doesn't believe that biking is a serious mode of transportation.
