From our sister city Vancouver

Worst Solution: Bike Lanes

Speaking of entitled dickheads…I mean…shit, so much for discretion (as if I care). What fucking problem has this solved? Someone enlighten me. From where I’m standing, the only things these stupid (and expensive) bicycle lanes have achieved are completely ruining any chance at getting anywhere on time crossing the Burrard Street Bridge and seriously increasing road rage. 

As if Vancouver streets weren’t crowded enough, now traffic is at an all-time high AND we’ve got bicycle lanes throughout our city’s main streets that inhabit nothing but rolling tumbleweeds 166 days a year. Not to mention the cyclists who seem to think they’re in some sort of polygamist relationship with the sidewalk AND the road, fucking them both at will. 

Decreasing the amount of traffic lanes isn’t going to stop drivers from driving. These people enjoy driving because pedaling home after a long day’s work is a motherfucking pain in the ass. You know what was a terrible idea? Electing a bicycle enthusiast as our mayor. There, I said it. (I would apologize to those of you currently writing hate mail, but I sincerely don’t give a shit).

It's a bit ironic that he says pedaling home is a pain in the ass, and yet seems to complain about driving. If all those obnoxious bikers were clogging up the streets in front of him instead, would that piss him off, too? He's going to be mad at someone, no matter what.

Not much enjoyment coming through in this article. btw how about a link to the article itself rather than just the front page of the site?

Rob, you need to catch the latest episode of Portlandia which shows "Critical Mass" for the absurdity that it is. In the episode a delivery employee is "forced" to learn to drive even though he is a bike nut and organizer of Portland Critical Mass. His employer demands he drive a vehicle in order to get more products to stores on time than he ever could on his bike.

Flash forward 6 months later and this new driver comes to the conclusion that car drivers should demand their own lanes without any bike traffic. He is tired of bike riders running red lights and not obeying traffic laws and with other vehicle owners blocks streets and turns the Critical Mass protest back with a counter demonstration. I for one found the satire very entertaining.
