  • “Only Those With Spokes Get to Speak”  – how precious. Why do African-Americans get a Black History Month and White people don’t get one? Why is there a “Gay Pride Parade” but no “Hetero-Pride Parade”. Add all the improvements for cycling and pedestrians in San Francisco and it is crumbs compared to the Bay Bridge and Doyle Drive retrofits. If the cyclists are so powerful, how was the Chavez project dramatically altered by trucking companies?

    Cyclists are noticed when they push because motorists never NEED to push. The entire system is designed for their benefit.

    With Garcia, it’s like talking to a wall: he doesn’t even acknowledge all the counter-arguments that have made against his anachronistic, car-centric arguments, again and again and again. I can’t stand editors who just talk to themselves and ignore all the counter-arguments. Talk about crappy journalism ….

    He needs to take the approach Nevius of the Chronicle took: get out there and ride (a bunch, not a handful of token times) and see what it’s like. It seems that is the only way for him to quickly learn than “Share the Road” means: “Bicyclists, be happy with the scraps our car-centric society gives you, even though we still put motorist convenience waaaaaay above your safety”.
