I've come to the conclusion that the people who are arguing so bitterly against spending a penny on bike lanes are just people who are jealous (and bitter).

Maybe they don't live close enough to work to ride their bike, maybe they're scared to try or never learned how to ride a bike. This is not to insult them -- I just can't think of any other reason why there seem to be so many people who are saying, "You can't have something for FREE, what about MY share".

It seems you can drown them with the facts about how the bike lanes on Cannon and elsewhere will benefit the city as a whole - socially and economically - but you can't sway them from their position.

I'm always interested in the psychology of the motivation behind behaviour.
