Does this thread belong in "road cycling"?

I am a road cyclist and I rarely see a "bike lane" (although I have ridden on one 3 times). And I do enjoy the MUPS.

The fact is... these people live in what is still a free Democratic Republic. Which means that if they don't want no stink'in bike lanes... OR EVEN BICYCLES... they have every right to ban them.

And sure... some lawyers would love to spend time, effort, and money defending the public right to ride... bicycles, horses, skates and skateboards. Or even strolling down the street nude-jump-roping as well I'd guess. But honestly... people have a right and an obligation to build communities they would like to live in.

The REALLY sad part is: The ridicule and name calling in threads like this make cyclist appear to be the kind of people I wouldn't want riding through MY neighborhood ether.
