You do understand there's been a steady increase in pedestrian deaths since 2009 after many years of decline, right? Gosh, what's significant about that year? Sure is a puzzler.

This is not a...

You know the difference between driving with a wet towel on your face and texting while driving (not stopped)? I've seen people holding the phone on the steering wheel while driving on the highway,...

I'm just going to suggest that someone who posts so much rationalizing of not riding must actually have personal issues with that decision. Seriously, who are you trying to convince? And this time,...

It is actually legal to text while driving in Colorado. That's reason enough to be nervous about doing anything on the roads in the state including riding, driving, and walking across. I get you...

The balance is a lot tougher than that for parents. If kids aren't electronically literate, they are going to be at a personal and professional disadvantage growing up. And parents these days get...

I don't think we're disagreeing about anything here (for a change), but we do have to keep in mind that we're not typical consumers--most people would have no idea how to calculate the likely resale...

I think this misses a huge point -- spending $600 on a bike that the kid is going to outgrow in a year or two is a tough sell when a $150 or less bike is available. One of the things that have...

Actually wasn't making new points, I was making them back in post 18. I wasn't paying attention to the fact that you were responding to one of my posts while I had already moved onto the other...

You're making my point for me--it's now normal to organize a kid's time for them to an extent unheard of a generation or two ago. You have the alternatives as riding around vs. organized sport. ...

By "it" I meant dealing with navigating through heavy distracted drivers generally, whether on bike, on foot and eventually driving. My kids are in their 20s now, your kid isn't going to be a kid...

It sounds like your neighborhood is unusual in not having any back roads around the shopping centers.

What got me into biking at a young age was precisely that I could ride around without my...

Not to mention, the "dangers" of riding on a major thoroughfare are often exaggerated. There are streets where I can't get my car through quickly because of the congestion, but I can zip right...

Uh oh. Isn't you and me agreeing on something one of the signs of the apocalypse?

If I was a parent with low...
