    That is hilarious. Even if it was a hoax, "relentlessly gay" made a lot of people laugh, I'm sure. And it would be a great t-shirt.

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

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

    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...
