Regarding "4-Foot Impossibility" (July 20): Letter writer Arthur J. Bronder has a knack for arithmetic and is correct that roads were not designed for bicycles. In fact, roads were built for people, horses, livestock, carts, wagons, armies and commerce. Additionally, the vast majority of cyclists own cars and trucks and pay their fair share of taxes.
Roads are, and always have been, multipurpose, and cyclists were using the roads before the internal combustion engine. Cyclists are here to stay.
