Stephan:OK, moving this discussion over from the cargo bike thread, who has something to say about what the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition should be doing and how it could be improved? As a Board member, and speaking for myself here, I don't want anyone who has something constructive to say to think they can't be heard by the Coalition. We need all the good ideas we can get. It really helps if you are prepared to do more than just complain.
markphilips:I visited Long Beach for the first time two weeks ago and was delighted to see the SHARROWS with a 5 ft green lane. The local bikeshop told me that motorists didn't like it at all because they have to share the road. It was great sitting in front of a coffee shop and watch teenagers, kids with their parents ride in the green lane. Has anybody seen anything like this in SoCal?Who is really blocking traffic?
ray333:I still think that SDCBC needs to adopt a more confrontatory posture in dealing with the logjam of governmental inertia in San Diego.
Protorio:SDCBC has been around a long time, and deserve the respect of the work they've done, and also deserve not to be painted by the actions of some members.
Velo Cult:perhaps the coalition board should be on this forum??
Stephan: If you want to know what the Coalition is up to, you can join and get the newsletter. That said, it sounds like the newsletter might need to do a better job of conveying all the things that the Coalition is involved in.
I just hope Serge doesn't find this forum ...

Has anybody seen anything like this in SoCal?Who is really blocking traffic?I saw these exact same thing in Boston in October. It was along Commonwealth Ave (for those how know the city) near the BU Bridge. When I was in school there I was on foot, but always saw how hard it was for bikes to cross that intersection. When I saw that green bike lane in October it made me smile and wish we had them here.
Kathy:and Larry's right - they did take out a traffic lane in each direction on Clairemont Drive east of I-5, and they put in bike lanes up and down the hill. So it should be much easier/less stressful to get up that hill now. That's the good news. The bad news is that there's apparently some push back from the community. Those bike lanes need defending, and you can help by coming to the community meeting on the subject : "6:00pm on Thursday, December 17th at the South Clairemont Recreation Center located at 3605 Clairemont Drive to discuss the recent traffic striping changes on Clairemont Drive. The meeting will primarily be focused on why the changes were made, what other options were considered, what studies will be done to determine the effectiveness of the change, and any concerns or questions" Hope to see a bunch of bicyclists there!Kathy
Larry:I guess I won't call that "vehicular cycling," based on the comments above
Technique question: how many would do as these bicyclists did and stay in line with the cars? Or would you "filter forward," either on the right or the left, to get in front of the cars at each light?
