I've noticed a couple posts that have pretty passionate responses to the notion of biker inferiority, childish cycling behavior, anti-bikelane-ism and the like.
Didn't want to create another poll but am interested in what is the majority opinion.
I think that bike lanes, signs, signals, etc. are very important and can only help improve the safety and convenience of riding.
I believe I am part of the majority. I plan my rides around safe routes that include well marked bike lanes. Since I've retired I concede that my strategy may not be helpful for commuters but I'd guess that most commuters would prefer not to have to fight traffic for room on the road.
It isn't enough to add a stripe to the road. A bike lane requires a planned increase in width that is best achieved upon complete repaving or new routes.
This does require advocacy and a unified front. That's probably the biggest challenge....
On the other hand, do most think the more agressive 'it's my road too' will achieve more?
