I saw the scene near my home today. They are sending their child to the nearby childcare or school. No fuss, just a simple and most practical way to do so. Its a normal thing to do. They take the pavement because it is the safer option and they are probably uncomfortable with the road traffic.
Imagine if we have even safer condition for cycling. I am sure more would try the cycling option.
For now, let's try to use the bicycle as much as we can for our daily task. Start small. Try using it to go for dinner, for buying some simple groceries. These actions will help change perceptions of the bicycle as a form of recreation.
One bicycle at a time.... we will get there!
