Cyclists, get set, ...oh the tracks are yet to be built!

The last line of Bicycle Race, the hit song of British legendary rock group Queen released in 1978 might echo the desire of Heru, a foreign bank employee on Jl. Sudirman, Central Jakarta, to ride his bicycle to work along Jakarta's major thoroughfare. 'I hope I can ride my bike to work... or at least use it to travel a short distance around my office building, to go out for lunch for instance,' the 35-year-old resident of Bintaro, South Jakarta, told The Jakarta Post on Friday. His wish, however, is not yet on the agenda of the Jakarta administration. Without a bicycle lane, daring cyclists have to negotiate the congested city streets."
