Let bikes on the road, give them the same rights as cars.

The right to :

pay for registration
pay for insurance

Fair is fair.

As someone who lives in a big university towns in which there are bike lanes on the roads, independent of sidewalks AND roads, I say:

Bikes belong on the roads. Bikers need to not be cockbags, and drivers need to slow the fuck down. The kids on the bikes annoy me too, sometimes, but they annoy me way more when I'm trying to walk on the sidewalk than when I'm driving in my car.

Way more. Indescribable amounts more. Plus, there are laws for them on the road.

I didn't watch any of the videos (because Glenn Beck is a ridiculous psychopath who should be put down) or read anything, but mostly this is an argument about individuals, not bikes on roads v. sidewalks.

If you make kids get off the side walk then all the old people will be yelling at them to get off their lawns. Old people yelling vs kids driving on sidewalks, pick your evil.

Bike lanes.

Oh wait, that would make sense. Can't have that in America.

Netherlands got that shit right. Bike lanes there are a road system of itself, with traffic lights and everything (at least from what I saw in Amsterdam). Bikes are too slow to be with cars in the same lane, but too fast to be on the sidewalks so give them their own roads. Unfortunately we were too stupid when building our cities and now putting in the infrastructure to have such a thing would cost insane amounts so no one wants to do it.

Funny that you mention Amsterdam, which is widely considered to be the worst city to bike in. It's all those damn tourists, you see.

Seems like my university has pretty good bike support. I'll just wait and see how I cope with a midwest winter on my bike.

Learn the buses. I have a few friends who bike come hell or high water and they are INSANE. When it's thirty below with fifty mile per hour winds and the street is a sheet of ice and it's snowing, that's not being green or economical or getting to campus. That's a death wish. A suicide attempt.

Yeah I can see that. The first day or two I was there, I definitely had no idea what was going on with these bike lanes, but after that I figured it out. Every day there are going to be people like that, because every day there will be tourists who have never been there, walking across a bike lane when they shouldn't be.

And I live somewhere that gets a regular -40 to -45 stretch before windchill every year that lasts anywhere from a couple weeks to a month and a half. What's your point :P.

It was very chilly in Santa Monica the other day, I had to put on a jacket after the sun went down.
