When I bicycle around Boston it’s mostly vehicularly. While the rules of the road generally give some order to the roads- I always need be extra vigilant and assume drivers don’t see me.


I’m experienced, follow the rules of the road, and best practices for bicycling. I can do everything in my power- but there’s no barrier if a driver is inattentive.


It is obvious that there is a better way. Re-educationBut why so much resistance to making the dream a reality?Re-education

No amount of education can fix an unequal match of people riding bikes next to cars. And only re-designing the roads will invite more people to ride a bicycle.

Your illustration of a truly protected bike lane needs to be in every bike planners deck! If you won’t let your child ride in a bike lane then it isn’t a properly designed bike lane!

I’ve thought about getting one of those compressed air horns to put in a cupholder mounted to the handlebar. Too close and BWAAAAPP!!! Do you notice me now??
