I love the *idea* of bicycle riding, but I am absolutely terrified to do it in the streets of my neighborhood. I have been hit (and run) by a car while crossing the street in the cross walk for crying out loud, how the hell am I going to stay alive as a bike rider with all the distracted idiot drivers in this town and not even a decent bike lane on most streets? There's a big project coming up to "revitalize" Van Ness Avenue near where I live. From what I've heard, they are going to make a transit-only lane and have MUNI riders board their buses at a center median island (let's tell the Google buses to suck it!) I can't really picture how it's all going to work, but I hope the plan for bike lane inclusion doesn't suck. We need more bike coops in town, and definitely one that's open 24/7.
What an awesome idea. I'd love to participate in making it happen if you actually get the project started :)
