Ryan, "Bike Lanes and the Middle Ground" Haven checked out the use of bike lanes and the cost to maintain such; I would say bike lanes are an extreme politically correct venture.I have noted that such are hardly used; therefore I question how they can be included as a worth inclusion with regards to policy. What is worth noting, though cycle clubs advocated for such, they rarely use them. Rather they chose to traverse in back country narrow roads four to five abreast, testing their weight and size against the weight of trucks, cars; while such roads are narrow and hilly they do not provide very good visibility at many times of the day, or evening, they seem, at times to be waiting for an accident to occur.

Considering that these bike lanes have been created, why don't they use them? In particular when there 50 or more are streaming through narrow and hilly country roads. Perhaps by using those bike lanes they would provide an example to children, that this is where they should be riding. They certainly are not being examples to children riding in the manner they have been on back country roads.
