37 miles of bike-lanes coming

Seattle is installing 37 miles of bike trails in the city, according to its Bicycle Master Plan. The Ballard News Tribune has a nice, if slightly Ballard-centric analysis. The plan includes bike trails, bike lines, "sharrows" (pavement arrows that indicate for cars to share the line), bike shoulders and much, much more. There's a real nice section about bicycles and transit. The deadline for comments on the plan has been extended to May 18th, so take a look at it here.

Hopefully, this will help reduce car-head and piss-off the old-timer haters that have proudly put this city in statis for decades. Certainly, it doesn't please The Stranger's Erica C Barnett, but she's a little, well, unstable.

That article about cyclists being the cause of traffic is ridiculous. As if only car drivers pay for the roads!
