    I want one. There are sometimes cops on horses on the bike path where I ride. Would be fun to clip-clop past them.

    Cargo bikes

    I am fascinated by how many cargo bikes I see. Almost wish I had a reason to buy one.

    Why would you say road diets are unpopular? And what does glamour have to do with anything? Road diets are very important and people are requesting them in some cases (in NYC, anyway). Granted,...

    You have to admit the green paint looks nice. I hope there is enforcement!

    Here's a video of a bike lane in NYC.

    Why would the behavior of the cyclists be different? Some cyclists ride safely; some don't. Traveling a couple of blocks in a separated, bi-directional lane isn't going to change that.

    One type of bike lane I will not use -- that's a painted (not protected) bike lane that runs between two car lanes. The one I tried to use routes cyclists around a right-turn-only lane. The cars...

    Certainly the potential for cyclists to crash into each other exists, but the alternatives are worse. I use several protected two-way bike lanes, and neither is a problem for me. One is separated...

    Yuck. I am so sorry this happened to you. It's fun to talk about confronting them, but I probably wouldn't do it either. I don't blame you for leaving, and I am very glad you told the owner what...

    The display is definitely offensive -- was "shameful" his opinion, though? Maybe you can talk to him about it. Internet communication is imperfect sometimes.

    I think that's great advice because of the low saddle. I kept the saddle on my hybrid low for a long time.

    That's exactly what happened with me, and I will always be grateful for the help, advice and encouragement that I found in this group. Very likely it made the difference in whether I kept cycling.

    I see a number of people on cruisers, and they look fine to me. If they are cycling mostly in Manhattan and Brooklyn, they aren't encountering many hills and don't need to go fast. I tried a...

    Filson is great. I got my SO one of the lined, ear-flap hats. It is really well made and super warm. As Muirenn said, pricey but excellent quality.
