Re: “Under Construction

i applaud the hard work all those who cycle or care about cycling are doing to make it easier to ride our bikes around our beutiful city and beyond. thanks for thinking of me and my fellow cyclist.
but i would caution to not overthink or fix what is not truely broken. do not waste the little money that does come the cyclist way.
the reasons why we cycle are varied, but to truely get more people involved you have to make it as easy as possible to jump and go. the bottom line is that it is fun, cheap, and good for you.
we need to think outside the box. like california motorcycle law that allows bikes to cruise along lane lines to truely aleviate traffic congestion and give incentive to those on two wheels that are saving gas and releiving congestion.
why not have two way bike lanes in such places as appleway from university-park/vista (for all obvious reasons).? why , after coming to a full stop at lights, can´t you just cross when traffic is clear??
two small suggestions that don´t cost much or zero depending on how much extra marking or signage you want to put out. i agree in most instances that you need to follow all the "car" rules, but the whole deal is there are advantages to riding a bike-personal and societal that we need to tip our hat too.
when i do ride "againest traffic" on a road such as appleway i save so much time and effort and makes my 10 mile commute so much easier and might pass all of one person on a bike coming the other way. there is ample room to pass each other just like on centenial trail.
so, in cases where you are really troubling over how to make a bike lane and considering costly destruction-construction, just do one side of road and put up signage saying that there is two lane bike route. i would apply this to one way streets downtown too.
thanks and good luck on your good work.
