Spokes Peo­ple

BC Business Magazine - - Feedback -

Read­ers didn't just like and share Ja­cob Parry's story about Van­cou­ver's bike econ­omy (“Wheel of For­tune,” March). Some also took the time to com­ment.

Steven Forth posted on Face­book that “this is just the be­gin­ning of the wave.” Forth, who says the city's cycling econ­omy is ex­pected to grow ex­po­nen­tially over the com­ing decade, be­lieves it will em­ploy more than 10,000 peo­ple in the next 20 years. Putting his money where his mouth is, he adds, “It is a place I plan to in­vest.”

On Twit­ter, Cam Cavers (@cam­cavers) joked, “No, no, bike lanes are ter­ri­ble for busi­ness be­cause of all the park­ing they dis­place, right? FAKE NEWS.” Not sur­pris­ingly, bike share ser­vice Mobi by Shaw Go (@mo­bi_bikes) tweeted, “We are wheely ex­cited to see Van­cou­ver's bike econ­omy thrive!” Micah Gold­berg (@mic­ah­gold­berg) wheely likes bik­ing to work: “Hope the mo­men­tum con­tin­ues. The best part of my day is the com­mute,” while Wag­gledance­news (@Wag­gledance­news) ex­claimed, “Woot! Woot! or should I say, `Ding! Ding!' :)”
