Those who believe in bike lanes are admitting that bikes do not belong on the road with cars. This being the case, the city should do everything in their power to keep cyclists as far away from cars. Since we know that cars and trucks need to access businesses, this would mean that bike lanes could not exist near busy roads.

The best idea is to create bike lanes on side streets, far away from people who need to get from A to B in a time sensitive manner. By creating bike lanes that use out of the way streets, cyclists will end up getting more exercise, while not interfering with people who work.
