I wonder if Bill Bauer rides a bike often enough to comprehend why cyclists are sometimes forced on to the sidewalk, especially considering the escalating traffic congestion created by the green light our greedy City Council has given outside developers.

The new bike lanes only make cycling marginally less dangerous for the cyclist. There are far fewer reckless cyclists than there are reckless drivers and scofflaw pedestrians.

The new police chief should suspend the three-day work week and use the savings in overtime to hire more police on bicycles! See how they fare on dangerous city streets!
