Reston's Robert Simon wants to see more kids on bikes

We just received a copy of the new Biking into Fall Robert Simon writes that at his age he no longer rides a bike. He often walks along Reston's many trails.
What is truly disappointing is how rarely I have encounters with the young. Where are they? At home glued to their computer or TV? What could be better for the health of these kids than to be outdoors on their bikes?
In the same issue of the magazine is an interview with Juliette Rossant, Reston resident and author of the book and blog Super Chef. She's also daughter of James Rossant, the designer and planner of Reston who worked closely with Robert Simon in the early days of this planned community. She laments that her fathers original plans were not implemented, which would have meant more space for pedestrians and bicyclists and less reliance on the car.
