All too many bicycle advocacy groups are mere extensions of other left wing movements. What we need are some right wing advocacy groups. We should be serious about such right wing issues as crime victims rights, property rights and the freedom to use our bikes where we can, including in various parks and reserves. We need to advocate a cyclist's right to keep and bear arms. There are more than a few posts talking about cyclists being attacked, or victims of road rage. It would be great legally to have the means to deend ourselves, as well as a meaningful right of self defense. Last, we need to view our rights as rights, not as an excuse to curtail motorists' rights.
