Toronto’s kind of funny about bikes. Namely because everyone who doesn’t ride a bike hates bikers for some reason- it makes for a pretty scary ride. I really wish there were more bike lanes.
I disagree on number 3. They should be high-fiving and wearing shades.
Otherwise, pretty much.
Cycling shades, no less.
Everything should be high fiving and wearing shades.
This is proof that we do not live in the best of all possible worlds.
In the best of all possible worlds…
Everything would be high Fiving and wearing shades,
MLP FIM would be real,
And yet more bikes = less traffic congestion. Good comic, cheers!
= more bike congestion and more of panel 1. Sadly.
I agree with all but #4. As a biker I see the road as a white-water river or maybe a moving slalom course. Either way it’s the only way to get the much craved drug, adrenaline.
oh you silly people with your not-existing bike roads.
I have been murdered so many times riding my bike through Mississauga. One guy that clipped my elbow had the nerve to tell me that it was ok because I was on the side of the road, as if there was any “side” to speak of. The mind boggles. Of course, then I see other cyclists weaving through traffic, running stop signs and red lights, and I’m like “guuuuys! This is exactly why the motorists don’t treat us like other vehicles, because you aren’t acting like other vehicles!” And then I was run down again.
Move to British Columbia we got a shit ton of new bike lanes and nobody uses them.
Tonnes of people use the Vancouver bike lanes!
And this comic reminds me of a children’s book about wild bicycles, and the boy that tamed one.
As a Torontonian who had an internship downtown this past summer, and drove to and from it, I can say that it is one heck of a nerve-wracking experience!! I hate when bikes get near me on the road because I’m terrified that they might hit a rut in the road or a streetcar track, and keel over sideways–straight into the path of my car’s tires. I would rather slow to a crawl behind a bike than attempt to pass it in packed narrow city lanes @_@ Of course, then the downtown ‘veteran’ drivers get real mad and beep at me, amongst other things. I PREFER TO PLAY IT SAFE OK SHEESH |D
And then I think: WHY ISN’T IT LEGAL TO BIKE ON THE SIDEWALK, IT WOULD SOLVE ALL THE THINGS
Because bikers are just about as bad as drivers are to bikes when it comes to pedestrians.
WE NEED BIKE LANES PRETTY BADLY THOUGH
