This is an article from today in our local paper. Obviously a lot of non-bikers hold this opinion, however it's frustrating none the less. The streets that are referred to in the article are main arteries that most bikers take to avoid having to criss-cross thru a bunch of side streets. The frustrating part is that the author refers to bikes being outnumbered by 1000 to 1. Well buddy, maybe this is the problem. Perhaps our City Council should restrict an entire lane to just bikes on these busier arteries. Maybe then some of those people will get off their lazy butts and out of their gas consuming SUV's to bike to work, if it's too slow to get to work with only one lane.
Luckily our City Council is pro-cycling to the point where we have a decent bike path network throughout the city, with aggressive plans to expand this network. I'm afraid the author will be seeing more of us out there this summer If I get run over this summer, you all know who likely did it
