Definetely agree. But it's funny - I rarely run into bad behavior on my commute. I do a lot of two lane (each way) bike routed streets, and the occasional driver that does the "zoom around and...

I agree. Jerk is too much, and will have the affect of those wanting to ride and learn correct VC to forget it - lest they be labeled as so.

The problem with designated bike paths is that they're usually MUPs, which end up being populated by walkers, dogs, kids and rollerbladers. Again that's a problem for cyclists - When I walk I'm...

Money. I like saving it and spending it on travel. Creates far more memories than an auto would.

The health benefits are a great side effect.
