commented on The Morning News: Drivers Don't Understand the Cycle Track, Customers Don't Want Amazon's New Phone
I'm a law-abiding bicyclist commuter who regularly rides with/in traffic because it's legal and often the best way to get where I'm going.
Having said that, I rode the new bike lanes on Second yesterday both coming into and leaving downtown and I loved it. It was as if Seattle had grown up from being full of grumpy complainers to a city that's ready to behave like an adult.
And, I took two shifts out on Second yesterday and today educating pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists about this new infrastructure. I figure the more education, the better... and the less grumpiness.
