in numerous threads about high speed road design the vc lobby for 'improved shoulders' opposed to bike lanes. Even if the road would support a bike lane design thats vehicular.
I'm curious what makes the vc crowd think riding on a shoulder - outside of the travelled way- would be safer or more vehicular than a preffered class lane for bikes on the travelled way of the road itself?
what makes riding off the road preferable to riding in a lane on the road preferable to the vc platform?
vehicles travelling outside of the travelled way seems very unvehicular -you're not even on the road, riding outside of the lines, for gosh sakes - but the vc crowd insists shoulder riding is preffered accomodation for high speed roads.
Why is this? and is shoulder riding considered vehicular to the vc crowd? Is this vc kowtowing to the motorists AGAIN, because cars can't use bike lanes in a vehicular manner but bikes can?
