  • Horrific is the right word for the attempted murder of the bicyclists in the Mission last night. If crazy people are going to use their cars as weapons, I think it’s time to talk about buffer lanes of parked cars between bicyclists and the street like they are doing in New York City.

  • Heh! You guys freaked me out! “There’s no rail line to Guerneville! What are they thinking!” But it’s Guerneville Road, specifically where Guerneville road crosses the tracks – in Santa Rosa.

  • John, I thought the same thing and clicked thru to read it.

  • Hah, thanks John. I’ve fixed that.

    Guys

    That old rail line runs way beyond Santa Rosa – from memory up through Willits and maybe as far as Eureka.

    AFAIK, it’s still intact and used for freight in some parts.

    An asset for future expansion, perhaps?

    Agreed taomom, that was my first thought. I don’t feel that we’re doing enough to keep cyclists safe. The convenience of drivers continues to take precedence over the safety of pedestrians and cyclists. It’s time to change that if we really want people to have the option to drive less. People are not afraid of walking and biking, they are afraid of car traffic.

  • Since Madison is an awesome city, I thought I’d pass this along.
