We have it in our heads that the more people on bicycles the better. But is that really true? We will never be like Amsterdam or Copenhagen. This after all is America and we are from the Murder Capital of that great country. As the number of cyclists grows so will the frustration with their cycling etiquette or more accurately the lack of it.
We will be surrounded by people on bikes who a few months earlier were driving cars in a reckless manner. They will not be out enjoying a casual ride across town but will be bringing all of the angst and distracted behavior into the bike lane. It will not be a pretty sight.
