Um, no thanks, to bikey scene #1 (which is precariously close to the exact spot where The Incident happened, by the way). Yes to bikey scene #2. (Both experienced by me today)
Hint: If your city’s bike infrastructure doesn’t provide safe, equitable access-for-all in the fog or rain, or if it is actually closed in the dark when kids go to school and commuters go to and from work — such as in a park or on a greenway — then it is actually not part of your city’s transportation plan. Don’t let them tell you otherwise. See more tips in my book, Traveling at the Speed of Bike.
