U.S. Dept. of Transportation Secretary Says Bikes Are Not Transportation

"Well, there's about probably some 10 percent to 20 percent of the current spending that is going to projects that really are not transportation, directly transportation-related. Some of that money is being spent on things, as I said earlier, like bike paths or trails."

No, she said bike paths aren't directly transportation-related, she didn't say anything about bikes themselves not being transportation.

But I think theres already a thread about this somewhere.
