Here in NYC there's a section of the the Belt Parkway where they added a two-way bike lane separate from the car traffic, and it's an absolute joy to ride on, even on the parts where the cars are right beside you. Why can't we have more of these, all over the country? On many highways, especially the larger ones, the real estate is there. I know the answer to this, obviously, but it's just a shame how cars have gobbled up all the infrastructure in this country.
