Dear Dane County Bicycling Supporter:

Matt Geiger of the Middleton Times-Tribune will be accepting letters to the
editor regarding the town of Middleton's non-binding decision to NOT include
in bike lanes in the reconstruction of Old Sauk Road.  Please consider
writing a letter in support of bike lanes.

Some talking points to include:

-Old Sauk Road is a designated Urban Escape Route, indicating that the route
already contains a large amount of bike traffic
-Bike lanes improve traffic flow for motorists
-Paved shoulders increase safety for motorists
-Paved shoulders have a lower total maintenance cost than non-paved
-Wisconsin was recently ranked the second most bicycle friendly state in the
country.  Adding bike lanes to Old Sauk Road is a step toward getting the
state ranked #1
