    Ah, that's good to know. Got me to do some research on carbon fibre. Thanks! :)

    What do you see us trying to promote that doesn't pertain to education, enforcement, safety and infrastructure? I don't see any. Greenways, protected bike lanes, lower speed limits and strict...

    How so? Promoting cycling as a solution in Social Engineering can be quite feasible. Look at the growing amount of bike-friendly infrastructure in Seattle.

    Efficient resource and space utilization isn't just about feeling superior. It is in the best interest of the society. So is promoting safety and respect for all road users.

    Looks great to me. Can't wait to get Nicole to start working here. :)

    Funny you should mention that. My wife dislikes brands that place their logos all over the place. Her first reaction on my PI gloves was, "Hmmm, those logos stand out a lot." :D

    Some streets are already mainly for people who walk or bike. I hope more streets will be like that in the near future. :)

    No worries. Seattle has already been on the bandwagon, building more greenways and parkade-like streets in neighbourhoods. Their "Vision Zero" initiative also plans to lower the speed limits on many...

    To me, practical solutions must follow the recognition of a problem, and the problem here is how "it has worked out." In other words, all roads are considered to be mainly for cars. That has to...

    I honestly think it's more like your poor presentation skills. When you mentioned "primary" and "secondary" road users, it certainly gave me the impression that you considered roads to be mainly...

    That's a good point. Unfortunately, I don't think kickstart is an exception in thinking that the roads are mainly for the cars. Some argue that the "share the road" motto implies that the motorists...

    I personally don't see separate bike paths as the only solution for safe cycling. As I stated earlier, protected bike lanes make sense on the highways and arterial roads that carry a large volume of...

    After reading the last few posts, I was a bit reluctant to post this one but what the heck. I'm not affiliated with Pearl Izumi in any way, though. :D

    It's one thing to infer something from a website. It's another to actually interact with the people behind it. I live in Seattle. I've met and worked with a few people from Cascade in person. I know...

    In Seattle, it's not just private organizations that strive to create a safer environment for people who bike. The City of Seattle itself does. :)

    How about this page? They seem to have classes for "all age and skill levels." The first one, Pronto Street Skills, is particularly interesting to me. Cascade is working with Pronto, our local...

    Would you mind sharing with me any particular references on their website that gave you that impression? I'm curious.

    That said, there are places "vehicular cycling" make sense. Residential...

    I agree user education is important. On the other hand, I wouldn't expect it to change the behaviour of everyone who drives. I'd prefer the advocacy for safer road infrastructure for everyone,...

    I mentioned this in a previous post (#4), but N 175th and Midvale N is frustrating to me. Granted they have trigger buttons, but they are only handy if you are on the sidewalk (i.e. Interurban...
