    Bicycle infrastructure won’t directly create a lot of jobs but they can help: With better bicycle infrastructure more people will bicycle which creates retail and service jobs in the bicycle sector.  But more importantly they improve the quality of life which makes companies want to locate there and people want want to live there.  New companies are new jobs and new people lead to a demand for more goods and services, which creates jobs.  If the bicycle infrastructure has a tourism/recreation potential it will draw users who need to eat, buy souvenirs, sleep, etc., which also generates jobs.  These varies new employees that have been created then create some additional demands so jobs create jobs.  So build well thoughtout bicycle infrastructure!
