when discussing 'best practice' design for bicycling some mention of facilites is inevitable. why call me at fault for discussing a topic at hand?
Best practices and safer bicycling facilities are actually central to the conversation aren't they?
you are aware VC is most emphatically NOT 'best practice' design for bicyclists by any metric. look at ridership in other countries, look at cycling rates by the elderly in countries that plan more considerately for bikes as transportation. compare to the USA and Britain.
griping that facilities are inseparable from discussion of 'best practices' and are part and parcel of 'best practice' design?
a huge inability to see reality for what it is.
are you just upset with cycletracks or something?
