My intention is to be safe, predictable, and visible, but I intend to continue using a whole lane of traffic for safety, otherwise cars pass way too close. Wherever bike lanes are installed I use them and appreciate them. I like getting out of traffic's way. Otherwise I do not care about being in the way. Actually I do feel bad sometimes holding up a lane on my bike because almost everyone is patient and nice ... but this is what the planners are causing with this moronic undermining of social progress while other places just get improvements done. 40 years for the cycling plan? Don't even bother, I'll be an old man ... the 3 meter bike lane called the right lane is very comfortable actually.

Anyway it is encouraging to see larger numbers of cyclists out this summer ... purely observation but I think the numbers are increasing. It is my hope that people do what is best for their situation and lifestyle and hopefully the streets fill with cyclists and they are simply left with no choice but to proceed. Their award winning traffic management will implement a cycling plan for the cars' sake ... to get bikes out of their way :)
