To Tracy and all others who disagree with the one day that cyclists take over the road: During my young teen years in North Idaho riding my bicycle in snow, ice, and heat I experienced motorists yelling and screaming at me while I hovered around the 3" of "bicycle lane" I thought was mine, motorists aimed their cars at me, and several times side view mirrors came within millimeters of hitting my head. I was forced to ride because my father was too busy drinking himself to death to take me anywhere.
Here in SB I've seen the same mentality that I saw up North. And my home town of Santa Barbara is supposed to be more "progressive" than the rest. Give it a break, more importantly, give cyclists a little room and a little respect. Unfortunately they are banned from the sidewalk which I personally disagree with considering the lack of a bicycle lane on Mission St. among many others.
For some it is their only mode of transportation, for others, it is the only way they can get a lower body aerobic workout to keep healthy and therefore less of a burden on our healthcare system.
One day I too will join in taking over the road for that day.
By the way, that dog is adorable and the next dog I get will be able to ride like that.
