A Smith >> I can't believe you actually are rebutting my caricature of your arguments (see reuben's very accurate description), but anyhow I have a few questions that hopefully will help some of us make sense of your warped worldview.

1) Why is speed of travel a factor as to who gets to travel and who doesn't? While you acknowledge the benefits of speed, you ingore the costs it imposes.

2) If I follow your logic and get in my car instead of riding my bike, as well as all the other "green cultists" who cycle...what impacts do you forsee for road users? For the community? For taxpayers?

3) Do you have any evidence that making roads safer for cyclists slows down traffic?

Your refusal to acknowledge my earlier rebuttal to you on the cost of cycling infrastructure to the city, and changing the subject to one of keeping up with traffic smacks of someone who carries a very deep anti-cycling bias.
