This is NOT a Bike Lane thread... but one focused on the various "advocacy groups" supporting cyclists.
Please use this thread as one to discuss the current and future of Cycling Advocacy.
I just read the history of the transformation of the American Wheelman to the League of American Bicylists, and the creation of the group LABreform.
I rode with the Wheelman organization years ago, but not being much of a "joiner" type, never really kept abreast of the organization.
Now reading this interesting history, I see why some views are very polarized.
Throw CM into the mix and really stir the pot.
I learned my basic cycling in the mid 70's and frankly am rather disappointed at the current state of cycling. It used to be small independent shops... which seem to have migrated into "Super Stores" in some locations.
What do you think about the state of the advocacy groups, what about local cycling conditions, and do you think things can be better?
