    rock death:Yeah cycletracks are sweet unless you have to ride on them

    I had a lot of trouble with peds in the Vassar St cycletrack at first, but lately that hasn't been the case. Maybe people are learning? Definitely though I can see a lot more hostility toward cyclists who choose not to ride in the cycletrack vs a bike lane.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    You won't know what claustrophobia is until you're behind 5mph Hubway bro-dude in an enclosed cycletrack.

    I can't recall ever seeing a cycletrack, even enclosed, that didn't have enough room to pass. Especially if it's a 5mph bro and you pass properly. Eleventy billion 5mph Hubway bro-dudes in a row though is a different matter.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    The problem I always have with the Vassar st one is that cars will always park right where it separates from the road, making it unusable or very dangerous. I've seen people flip over their bars because they try to get on it anyway but the curb rises too soon and they hit that."life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    Yeah that's definitely an issue. I don't see it that much, but it's super annoying.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    Mayoral Preliminary vote is tomorrow: 12 enter, 2 leave. What are peoples' thoughts?

    FWIW: BCU sent a questionnaire to all 12, only 3 responded: Arroyo, Connelly and Walczak. Ross has a long spiel about bikes on his website, but they're all kinda pie-in-the-sky - like "Build a network of dedicated, separated cycle tracks that connects every neighborhood to each other." - like, why don't you just promise me a Totoro-style catbus while you're at it?i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy

    If only they'd left the elevated O-line tracks up, he could install a cycletrack in the sky.

    I'm not sure who the other one will be, but Connelly is walking away with one of those spots.

    I'm glad to see my city councilor (consalvo) go. Dude sucks.e-f-f-e-c-t a smooth operater operating correctly

    Connolly was campaigning a couple of weeks ago at Roxbury Crossing, and he approached me as I was waiting to cross Tremont on my ride home, specifically to mention cycling and hand me a flyer with his traffic/cycling agenda spelled out. On a purely human level I liked him, he didn't have that polished cool demeanor that I've seen in most politicians, there was an air of sincerity to him that was comforting. However I immediately thought "this guy will never win, he's too nice for this stuff."

    Everything about that video screams Onion parody.

    If true, I'm not surprised by the results, but I do wonder which way the causality vector runs. Do rich people engage in unethical behavior because they're entitled, or are they rich *because* they engage in unethical behavior?Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)
