Most appealing in Seattle’s Bicycle Master Plan is the intention to mainly focus on existing roadways and making them more bike friendly and improving the City’s quality of life. I posted on this topic earlier, after being convinced by the Contested Streets documentary that shows how cities have “focused on the bicycle as a primary transporter and changed their streets and traffic flow to allow for more bikes.”
Also very important is wayfinding for cyclists and I think the goal of increasing “cycling from 2 percent of all trips now, to 12 percent of all trips within 20 years” is achievable.
