I agree. When I rode with the City transportation planning folks a Sunday ago, they had the mindset of including more bicycle improvements provided it didn't disrupt traffic. This is typical car mentality which will get us where we've been, not where we need to go. To get more people on bicycles, routes need to be designed with bicycles as the dominant transportation (a bicycle mindset) which would include; priority in changing the traffic signals, speed limits not to exceed 25 mph adjacent to bike lanes, Idaho's stop sign roll through law, financial incentives to employers to install bicycle friendly facilities, and a strict enforcement of the speed limits for the 2-ton machines that whiz by my left shoulder at 10-20 mph faster than the posted limit.
