Thank you for your letter of 8th November, I appreciate very much your advocacy and certainly understand the importance of bicycles for transport and recreation.
Enhancement of the opportunities for the increased utilisation of bicycles is challenging but absolutely necessary in the changing circumstances that we face. I certainly support close liaison between Council and Bicycle User Groups recognising that there are other interested parties that need to be taken into account. Hornsby is challenging because of the distances involved and the cost challenge of constructing appropriate infrastructure. Nevertheless, I support ongoing efforts to achieve this outcome. If we can obtain Government support it would make the task for our financially challenged Council very much easier.
I certainly appreciated receiving your separate brief.
