Which are more vehicular shoulders or bike lanes?
some comments in another thread has left me seriously doubting the vc idealogues abilities and logic.
some of the idealogues have mentioned how wide shoulders on high speed arterials are ample for their road riding. Interesting to me that a vehicular cyclist would prefer a wide shoulder to a wide bike lane.
I think riding on shoulders, while safe if shoulders are wide and relatively clean, is NOT very 'vehicular' and does NOT suggest to other road users that bicyclists are supossed to be riding on the roads.
wide, clean bike lanes, integrated with the rest of the road striping, are much more 'vehicular' in concept, and suggests more strongly to other road users that bikes are supossed to be riding on the road.
Shoulders or bike lanes - which suggest more vehicular operation of bicycles to other road users?
