    The only advocacy I would bother with is a push to create smooth, wide streets and roads. This would benefit EVERY road user on wheels. All I really need is a smooth surface and a little room to...

    Ever seen "The Road Warrior" with Mel Gibson? Notice any bicycles in that movie?

    After the last drop of gas is burned up someone who is in love with cars MIGHT ride a bicycle to work.

    Patient: "Hey Doc...it hurts when I to THIS!"

    Doctor: "Then don't do THAT!"

    This may sound nasty, jealous, and mean spirited to some but if it freaks you out riding 2-lane country roads, then...

    Never read the comments. The local rubes come out of the woodwork any time there is a comment section regarding bikes vs. cars. If they stopped to think about it, other CARS are the most likely...

    Fever is where I draw the line.

    I have biked to work with minor illnesses while taking medication. But if I get a fever, I'm heading to the doc and/or taking a few days bed rest.

    People will starve their children before they give up their cars due to high gas prices. They may drive a little less, vacation closer to home, but they will NOT ride a bicycle to work in significant...

    Why would I want that? I am a fairly fast cyclist. Back in the day when few others commuted by bicycle I would have all of the gaps in gridlocked auto traffic to myself. Now that utilitarian cycling...

    I never go to cycling events advertized or not. A bike is just a tool I use to get around and not some lifestyle symbol. I seem to get a long just fine. Thanks for asking!

    Thankfully I live in a city where everybody looks like a commuter in the city grid. You would have to look a long time to find someone wearing a race kit commuting here. We just put on our work...

    It's hard to rank by state. I think it should be broken down into rural and city cycling. Best cities may not be in the best states, and since most people live in cities and choose to ride...

    If you feel safe on 2-lane country roads, then something is wrong with you. It is natural to worry about getting whacked out there. Unfortunately, the only solution to your problem is to avoid those...

    May I add: ...AND an oncoming truck will be in the opposite lane. The truck, overtaking car, bicycle, and obstacle on the right will ALWAYS be perfectly synchronized to put the cyclist's life at the...

    I do my very best NOT to share the lane using various techniques that help lower the number of cars overtaking me and a helmet mounted mirror to keep an eye on the few who do catch up. Been at it for...

    I know common sense is not all that common, especially here. But it does not take a 30 year double-blind study with ten thousand test subjects to be able to rightly assume a couple of things:

    I believe that auto insurance companies will top the list of folks wanting to and assembling lists regarding cell phone use and driving hazards. Most likely the insurance industry will address the...

    Realize that with a working cell phone in your car you can call the cops to report drunk drivers and actually give the police a minute by minute update on the drunks position. Other crimes too....

    I think everyone here would agree with your statement. Problem is...people do what they want. All the OP was trying to sort out in his own head is the fact that if people are going to do whatever...

    Man, if my father was still living he would have made that nasty left turn with a phone in one hand while lighting a cigarette and opening a breakfast burrito. He would routinely wait until he was...

    My wife checks a map app on her phone every half an hour or so when I am driving with her on long road trips - to check for delays, accidents, road construction backups etc. I can't tell you how many...

    YES!!! I have been saying this (right here on A&S too) for years. I am totally against cell phone laws for this^^ very reason. Hiding the phone below the dash causes a much more dangerous situation...
