bike night

What a great night for a bike ride.  Fortunately because of the  foresight of Lake Worth’s CRA we have bike paths for safe riding.  There were some that felt we did not need them but have you seen who all is riding.  Since the weather has been so delightful I’ve noticed more and more bike riders.  Here is a group that is doing good beside enjoying a balmy evening.Outspokin Community Bicycle Project will be an education and recycling center for bicycles- where people of all ages learn to build, repair and maintain a bicycle while giving something back to their community.I’ve been trying to capture the extra high bike and lo and behold in this group there were three.  Lake Worth truly has it all including flat streets. They do this once a month to raise awareness and raise some much needed assistance.

    I think its great to be bike friendly, but the bike lanes put in by the CRA, on the low speed (25 mph), residential, secondary streets were a big waste of money and did nothing to beautify our community. Bike lanes, next to parked cars are inappropriate because of dooring concerns. Furthermore, no one with any expertise in bike transportation planning puts bike lanes on low speed residential streets b/c they are not necessary and in fact can cause more problems than they solve. Pay attention to how many people are not biking in the painted lanes and how many people are biking in the wrong direction, drivers will see the painted lanes and will not look out for the bikes who are going against traffic and who are outside the lanes. Painted bike lanes are appropriate for collector roads, i.e. Federal Hwy, Dixie Hwy, Lucerne, LW Rd., 6th Ave. So., 10th Ave. No., etc. that move at a higher speed.

  2. Your points are valid. How well I know, I got hit by an open door. As to beautify do any of them beautify perhaps its the riders themselves who make it beautiful. As to the rider on the other side well he passed me only yesterday and lucky for me my car is a compact or was that lucky for him. As to CRA funds I came late on the scene. So can we go forward from here and look at the bright side.

    HEY! Sunday morning bicycle gang. You know who you are. Im talking about these groups of 30 to 50 somethings that group up at Starbucks with their fat guts and chicken legs all wrapped up in RIDICULOUS spandex “Tour De France” outfits. First of all please remove your dumbass pedal clips from your shoes or take them off if your gonna walk around on tile floor. You sound like a small horse clacking around the coffee shop. Second. You really dont need to reduce as much wind resistance as possible with your dumbass outfit and your dumbass teardrop helmet and your really nice $4,000 dollar bike. Whats the point if you dont work on your belly? Do some crunches and stop being stupid. Now last but not least. When im driving down the road at 35 mph and your group is coming towards me with whistles in theyr mouth and you all start screaming “SHARE THE ROAD! SHARE THE ROAD” I will have no choice but to make a violent U turn and mow you all down. Dumbass.
