re: door zone. There are easy methods to give cyclists more space between traffic and parked cars. The city has to be willing to use 9 foot traffic lanes in some cases (Toronto and Burlington use them, but here it would cause mass mayhem apparently).

  • my opinion on 'door zone' bike lanes changed dramatically a few years ago when I was in Portland and experienced the bike lane in the bottom link above. Small improvements can go a long way, but they only happen in cities who actually want a safe network for cyclists. Here, we want speeding cars and everyone else can figure out how to navigate around them.
