    FWIW, I came across two letters to the editor re: bicycling in Saturday’s Marin Independent Journal: “Tougher laws needed for bicyclists” and “Few but ‘powerful’ letters sway council?” (from http://www.marinij.com/opinion/20150529/marin-ij-readers-forum-for-may-30 ).

    The level of negativity is astounding. Here is one quote:

    “He should write a law requiring bicyclists to ride single-file on the road — no exceptions — and no groups larger than six riders. Riding a bike is a hobby, not a necessity.”
