News and History, is it a circle or a cycle?

I have seen this in the news from several sources, but here is an article from Transportation Nation:

Also, taking some of the news full circle, or should I say full cycle, here is some history that shows how bicycles were influential in the early history of modern roads and other changes that came just before the era of automobiles:

Detroit Bike History: Jack VanDyke Talks Cycling In The Days Before Detroit Became The Motor City

A similar history lesson is given in the very good read: Big Roads, by Earl Swift
