I consider the "Green Lane Project" or "People for Bikes" to be more of an impediment.
*They exaggerate the risks of cycling to promote an inflexible political agenda.
*They encourage and promote divisiveness in the cycling community.
*They promote unsafe infrastructure that would be rejected in the Northern European nations they pretend to admire.
Hopefully, as the backlash continues to grow the people involved will moderate their positions. I find it ironic that VC cyclists held back cycling for decades and now progress is being held back by extremism from the other end of the spectrum.
