Cycling’s Enemy is not the Car

Posted: 03 Oct 2009 06:58 AM PDT

@lock – I agree but I think perhaps my (or rather the original author’s) choice of the word ‘idiot’ is the problem. I think for the majority it isn’t a problem of intelligence but of a willingness to … Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

OH YEAH: Don’t make bicyclists more visible. Make drivers stop hitting them.

About 100 years ago, the auto industry pulled off a neat trick: It stole the public roadways from us. See, in the early days of the motor vehicle, there used to be this quaint idea that the person operating the giant machine should look out for other people.
