A good customer just sent me this article, which I highly recommend. And although I have a rule against reading the comments on any internet site/blog/article/etc., I read a few associated with the linked piece, and they were coherent and reasoned. The fact of the matter is that we, cyclists, are part of the problem. The whole problem? No. But we absolutely need to do a better job of being good citizens on the roadway.
Look around. Other than perhaps the condition of our roads, it is SO much better today than it was five years ago. Cycling has become much more common and acceptable. Government — our government — is investing in local cycling infrastructure.
Please, my friends and fellow cyclists, let’s not blow it.
