Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and state Department of Transportation Commissioner Jim Redeker have embarked on an 18-month planning process for the state’s transportation network. Along with road and rail, should that network include more bike and pedestrian pathways? Proponents say biking is increasing in popularity and is a win-win, it’s transportation and exercise with no use of fossil fuel and no pollution. But there are issues with cost, land acquisition and nimby attitudes. Should the state push for more bike trails? What’s your view?
