[Cyclelicious] New comment on Bicycle Missoula.

zbikenut has left a new comment on your post "Bicycle Missoula":

Source of funds is only marginally relevant to use of funds. Nobody said that since money for roads comes from cars it must be used for cars. If we only used taxes that way how would we pay for education? We give our elected officials the power to spend some of our tax money. It is in the public interest that our government promotes bicycle riding. The government in general feels it is good for the population to ride bikes. Therefore we have spent millions of dollars to build paved trails up the Bitteroot from Lolo, light the Kim Williams trail, put the tunnel under the Russel street bridge, and other projects. We have spent this money even though we do not get significant tax money from bicycles. It is for the public good.
