Can Bicycles Fix Our Public Transportation Problems?

You call these people experts?! Why did you not get some people who actually knew something about bicycling!? The idiot... uh, editor from the Useless-Tribune actually refers to the boardwalk as a bike lane. The boardwalk is a tourist attraction. No bicyclist trying to get anywhere would seriously use the boardwalk to get anywhere.

One-quarter of motor vehicle trips are less than 2 miles which is less than 10 to 15 minutes on a bicycle. The editor from the Useless-Tribune should be ashamed of himself. He keeps saying that bicycling is simply silly. Removing 1/4 of the motor vehicle trips from the roads is silly?!

The other idiot, sorry, expert calls bicyclists "elitists!" We must move toward bicycling. We are running out of cheap oil. It will go back up to $5.00 within a few years. And when it does, there will be plenty more bicyclist on the road.

Also, no one talked about the health benefits. We are an obese, out-of-shape nation. Bicycling is an opportunity to get your exercise while you are commuting. Cars kill us with kindness.

I repeat, next time you talk about bicycling, please try to get some people who actually know what they are talking about.

KPBS is going down porcelain oasis...

P.S. I have over 51,000 miles on my bicycle, most of it commuting. It is no where near as dangerous as the idiots, uh, experts made it out to be.
