"Vehicular cycling for transportation is unfortunately necessary in many places.  It's wise to learn the skills to survive when you must share the road with all kinds of vehicles.  I often fear for those I see on the road who do not…"

"I avoided this thread for  a long time and finally decided to  read through it. Forester's ideas were borne of a time when  the reality was the supremacy of  automobiles and when  Detroit was a thriving metropolis based…"

"One issue on the far south side that doesn't usually come into this discussion is ward size - with respective to the number of road miles to maintain and how that affects aldermen's willingness to spend menu money on bike infrastructure.…"

"The communities as a whole may not understand the necessity but That happens everywhere. Just this summer Lincoln Park non-biking residents were freaking out over a bike lane - it’s what NIMBY is all about. Why wouldn’t Chicago listen to…"

"Paul's comment captures a lot of what my original point was meant to be.  You have to be careful labeling Forester's ideas as simply based on white, male ideology when a lot of the complete streets and Vision Zero framework is built…"

"Don't you think that advocacy has been focused in certain parts of the city primarily because that's where the residents were already most interested in, and receptive to, bike infra?  IOW, the northside is the low-hanging…"

"Why has the bike advocacy just focused on northside and loop areas at the cost of the rest of the city? Money or Race or what? It's easy to point fingers at CPD for stop and frisk for sidewalk riding in Englewood but maybe the finger…"

""If we don’t view transportation through lens of equity, ethics, & empathy, outcome is 100% predictable. " "'40,000/year die in crashes, greenhouse gases go up, sprawl continues, we get unhealthier, more people…"

"Thanks John.  I bring these issues up not to be a pain or a contrarian but because the ship has yet to right itself. We need equity in planning our infrastructure, mass transit, and road systems. If we don't, we are doing a great…"
