Hey folks, what does all that tax money gonna do in January? I'm all for biking, a modest bike systems, etc but a full scale plan with dedicated bike lanes is a bad/ costly idea. The only benefit is in the summer, the costs (including pollution from more congestion) go all year without some complex idea for switching things back to 'normal' in winter. The cities on the list you like to mention are not in snow belts and nowhere do we really see biking in wintry weather, a few diehards notwithstanding. The whole debate is rather stupid since the root cause - urban sprawl - is not addressed. Fix that and there is no real need to change anything.
