I googled it, and watched a video, where pedestrians and even a couple of motorcycles were using it. Very cool, and a great solution.

It is a nice solution if not for the cost. That cannot be cheap enough to be something that becomes more than a novelty.

There are lots of places in this country where we have wasted more money on less useful infrastructure than this.

New car smell is not the odor that immediately comes to mind after reading that story...

If you had only moved all the way over into the oncoming lane to pass, it wouldn't have been an issue. Nobody was coming, so there was no reason for you not to do it. But rather than focus on behavior over which you have absolute control, you want to focus on the behavior of the other person.

I guess I had to expect getting passed in more unsafe spots 'cause its Sun. 2:37 and 4-5 people going around me into oncoming traffic or over the crests of hills.

One was 1/4mi away from a church! Guess he wanted all of us to meet our makers just that little bit earlier. Good thing the old guy in the Caddy still had decent reflexes! :phew

Motorcycles? Or mopeds? Mopeds are bicycle with small (very small) motors on them - usually driving a rubber wheel bearing on the tyres surface.

I guess they are scooters of some type. Bigger than mopeds it seems.

Yep.. headlights on some look big.

I not that some of the bicycles don't look to have lights .. in the evening.. not good ... maybe it is a local thing? Or maybe they are saving their batteries for the dangerous bits.

I strongly suspect the snowplow driver was incredulous he passed 3 nutcase cyclists out in the 'biggest snowstorm EVAR!' last nite

NY lawmaker says no one should ever ride a bicycle OR a motorcycle in his county

This guy is quite the piece of work…

Quote:
A member of of the local legislature in Suffolk County, N.Y. does not want anyone in his community riding bicycles.

Legislator Thomas F. Barraga (R) shared his views on biking in a Jan. 29 letter to a teenager whose mother was injured while riding a bicycle.

"My personal feeling is that no one who lives in our hamlet or for that matter in Suffolk County should ever ride a bicycle or a motorcycle," Barraga wrote in the letter, which was first reported by Newsday. "I cannot tell you how many constituents over the years have told me that they are taking up bicycling for pleasure and exercise. I have told them not to do so but they usually do not listen."

Barraga went on to claim "90 percent" of the people who told him they were "taking up bicycling" were subsequently "hit by an automobile."
