Your cartoon ends on an optimistic note, but sadly what most children in this situation really feel is that next year they want a car.

Most pedestrians are unconscious when on pathwaya. They don’t see the yellow line they are supposed to stay to the right of. They don’t hear bicycle bells, air horns or shouts. They push wheel chairs like a wandering dog through a park while cutting off cyclists and pedestrians.
Even had a runner stop on the edge of the pathway and walk into me as I passed on a bicycle. You don’t think this was deliberate?
Good thing I know how to fall on pedestrians to absorb the impact!

There are a few nice places to ride here in nyc, the hudson bike path for example, but for the most part it’s pretty much a war zone. I kind of relate to the poor guy in the bike lane from the comic. Wrote a blog with some safety tips for urban riders if anyone is interested: http://blog.nycewheels.com/folding-bike-safety/ – Jack
