[Cyclelicious] New comment on A United Front.

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "A United Front":

One of the main problems here is that Vehicular Cycling and separated lanes are seen by most Americans as mutually exclusive. Anyone who has been to Copenhagen or Amsterdam (the ideals of separated facilities) knows that every person on a bicycle there is a Vehicular Cyclist. They all have no problem mixing and coexisting with the automotive traffic, and they are also quite glad to take advantage of the dedicated lanes where they are needed. It's a question of thoughtful, integrated road design. One of the big epiphanies for me when riding in the Netherlands was realizing that there are many roads on which bicycles are prohibited, but that there will always be a parallel bicycle trail reaches the same destination. If there is not a trail, then the human and gas powered traffic mixes, with no animosity. Very sensible. Val
