OTOH the American River Trail in Sacramento is heavily used by the TDF wannabes.

    *I realize that avoiding the plague is out of fashion.

    So you're saying that road bikers find it a pain in the ass to avoid slow rolling commuter bikers and kids on the bike path?

    Nothing he posted suggests that. You should probably just admit that youíre trolling

    Speed limits exist on both? I guess you found the bottom of the bottle and the one chest thought for today?

    Everything he posted suggests that, which is why he "can certainly understand why a serious road biker would avoid that path like the plague".



    What the fuck is wrong with you?

    Sounds like you're coming from a really dark place, sunfree.

    By serious road bikers Iím reasonably certain that he meant TDF wannabes, you know, recreational bicyclists. Not commuters you disingenuous fucktard

    By "Serious road bikers" I'm reasonably certain he meant adults with spandex suits, shaved unibrows, and stupid hats who like to race each other for pleasure and Skatetown, U.S.A.-style dominance.

    TDF wannabees move to Texas to be with Lance, or Wyoming because it's legal blood doping and they can ride their 2000miles/month without having to worry about getting killed in traffic.

    Takes genius level knowledge; regular fucking Mentat here.

    Gotta respect when the commuting racers wearing backpacks stuffed with clothes and laptops pass me on the bike path/bike lane going 20+ mph at 7 a.m.

    Kinda nice that the bike coalition here did a lot of work to get those paths/lanes set up. Pretty good grassroots biking org: https://www.marinbike.org

    After spending days advocating for asshole road bikers to ride the roads next to the bike paths, you link to the Marin county bicycle lobby and then pretend you know what's in some asshole road biker's backpack?

    Peel away the onion, and there's just an angry little child who would rather ride on the roads than the bike path. That's all any of you are.

    You gotta admit he has a point there. Don't just assume there's a laptop in those backpacks. The polite thing would be to carry tools and spare brake pads for every brand of phallic diesel "truck" since they know they're going to be wearing those suckers out.

    Itís great to get off the computer and talking with people IRL. Amazing what information they share.

    Some other bike coalitions doing work, like Colorado:

    Denver/Boulder

    Hey, HA I see that Alaska dropped from #29 to #33 in bike friendliness. That because of you? Good work!

    The polite thing is to ride on the bike path, instead of the road right next to it.

    You know shit's legit when you find it on a .wordpress site... Do they have a map of all the taxpayer-funded bike paths in Denver and Anchorage?

    despite what mommy told you, politeness of others isn't there to satisfy your selfish personal convenience
