    I think I have used the racks only a couple times. Once when my rim cracked and it would have been a 7 mile push to get the bike home. Once when my arthritis flared up and I honestly didn't think I...

    Yes, and some people are entertained by politics, especially as it relates to bikes and carfree living. It would be nice if they could occasionally have an entertaining conversation without being...

    That was a bad mistake. Bikes and buses go well together, as discussed on a recent thread started by Dahon.Steve.

    That's actually a disrespectful attitude. People are not posting here to make you laugh. They are trying to discuss issues that they think are important, interesting, or useful. If you don't share...

    I agree that the people riding the buses are not busophobes. If you get used to the bus, it's actually pretty nice.

    But what about the thousands of people who aren't riding the buses? I bet if you...

    People use political speak to talk about politics. Just like we use bicycle speak to talk about bikes. If the political speak intimidates or bores you, you might want to hang out more in the bicycle...

    It sounds like adjustment problems. But I think we need the stick as well as the carrot. Maybe congestion fees, reduced parking, and/or closure of selected streets to cars.

    This is depressing, but gives me a lot to think about. My grandson will be sixteen in a few weeks. He seems to be ambivalent about bikes and cars. Sometimes he says he just wants to get his license...

    Of course, if bus riding were more popular, the car congestion problem would be eliminated.

    There are no bike racks on your buses? The bus company here is in the process of replacing dual racks with triples.

    Yes, I agree that this is an advantage to rail or even street rail (trams or trollies). Property values go sky-high within several blocks of a subway or even street rail stop.

    However, it's a moot...

    I rarely agree with tandempower's POV, but I greatly admire his thoughtfulness, thoroughness, and attirude of respect for others on the forum. His posts are not spoofs or satires. Rather, he has...
  15. Busophobia--Bankrupting cities and limiting transit

    Urban planners tout trains as the solution to urban transit woes. But trains require great capital expenditures and long, slow development times.

    Buses, on the other hand, are relatively cheap to...

    Very interesting developments. For those who don't know, Sault Ste. Marie (pronounced soo-saint-marie) is a very northern city, just a stone's throw from Lake Superior. If a biking trend can happen...

    I agree. I don't think the type of mixed use development now becoming popular (basically shopping centers with apartments or condos on the same parcel) do anything to reduce either driving or car...

    Good point. Many bike trails are useless for transportation cycling.

    However, a lot depends on local geography and trail design. Where I live, the Rivertrail is a good direct connection between...

    Just a guess, but I think the Northwest was the main region to see a faddish increase in cycling. Fads die sooner or later. That could explain a decrease in cycling in that one region. I would guess...
