What percentage of the Birkenstockers on bike paths do you think are socialist rats? 80%? 90%? Let them pay for their own recreation. As for those sound barriers - dont buy a house next to an interstate. IDIOTS.

Since I ride a bike, and a number of my friends also have bikes and ride them - I’ll have to disagree with your numbers. We are all conservative.

Most of us ride on regular roads for exercise - not to work - and it’s a matter of picking your routes.

There are just as many rude drivers as there are rude bikers. I’ve seen both plenty of times.

People buy a house close to the road so they can say my box is bigger than your box, but then so is his wife’s rear.

Madison, Wisconsin, AKA MADISTAN, jumped at Federal Money to put in paved bike paths all over the city.

There is a sting attached, tho.

Such money from the Feds demands that maintenance must be current & that all paths MUST be kept open 24/7/365.

Since there is often a winter with fair amounts of snow in Madistan, such paths must be kept OPEN.

They are too narrow to plow with a truck, so they must use manual labor & snowblowers to keep them open all winter.

There is ALWAYS a Birkenstocker or 3 to call up & demand that such plowing be done immediately, all winter long.

The manual labor cost of such path clearing is far exceeding the cost of the path in the first place, which Madistan could have done with their own money & their own rules about winter clearing efforts.
