I use all of those bike lanes and I live in the area. Well, I don't use them this winter, they're covered in snow so I ride out in the street, but yes they're awesome. They are seldom used because they don't connect to anything. As soon as you leave the safety of the bike lane you either get on the sidewalk or are on a roaring mountain arterial with the Langoliers chasing you to gobble you up. Few type A personalities ride year round like that. Heck, parachuting is safer than going to work.

The tax forms in front of me and on my computer monitor indicate that yes indeed I paid my share toward infrastructure (when we take our cars out is when we are smashing the road to bits and leaving roadkill everywhere). Pretty please, with sugar on top, in return may I travel around the city on bike and run my errands without being murdered?
