BIKELASH 2019: What’s the most ridiculous comment you’ve heard in opposition to a bike lane?
I was honored to attend the National Bike Summit 2019 in Washington, D.C. hosted by the League of American Bicyclists.
As usual with that large gaggle of bike riders all in one place it provides unique opportunities to ask pertinent questions about bicycling, and some can even be therapeutic and fun. Like in this case where we asked attendees what was the most ridiculous comment/reasson/lie you have ever heard in opposition to a protected bike lane in your community or state. Could be a citizen, elected official, advocate or community member (or even a member of the media!). The results are hysterical and run the gamut from ugly bollards to a bike path that can magically make birds go extinct!
