I have to agree with Nick ... It's time to stop complaining and celebrate the small victories. Your not going to transform a city from Moscow style cycling infrastructure to Seattle overnight.

Instead of an article about how bad the new bike lane is, an article about how high usage will convince the city to improve the Hunter Street bike line would likely have a far more positive effect.

You may be able to argue about the need and benefits of cycling infrastructure, but if we don't use it, it's too easy for people to say ...'waste of money'. I know in the real scheme of things it's not money (compared to a nice 4 way clover leaf), but people see new 'stuff' and can only assume it cost 'money'. Bizarrely since they don't use it they assume it cost 'their money'.

The mantra should not be 'Not good enough' but, small victory but we can show we need better.

As always I'm willing to contribute a 5 gallon pail of green paint to make it better.
