  1. The bit on bicycles seems to have been lifted off the Sound Politics Website, complete with recitation of bona fides such as “well I’ve biked so I’m a biker”. Gee, guys, that was pretty laughable and wildly uninformed for a couple of lefties who love alternatives to cars and an end to oil dependence.

  2. Thanks for the comment Brad. Sound Politics, eh? That’s pretty harsh, and, I would argue, rather unwarranted.

    Regardless, I think this attitude that having biked is not enough to grant one status in the priesthood of bikerdom is exactly why bicycling is destined to remain a niche commuting activity. If you do want to end oil dependence (which I do), our cities’ bicycle networks (and not just in Seattle) will have to get much safer and much more accessible.

    Appreciate the feedback, as always. Thanks for listening!
