The Bicycling Apocalypse: A Manifesto of Liberation Over Segregation | Commute Orlando

Although this pieces is rather long and a bit lose, it does a pretty good job of laying out the case for education over infrastructure. Where we live, traffic is pretty thin and dedicated bike paths are great for intercommunity travel, but not for getting where you want to be in town.

If you are interested in a smartcycling class check out the TRC Education page.

As American cyclists our first goal must be to be seen as normal and predictable.  The solution to that is quite simple.  Be polite to motorists.  Be predictable, which means behaving the way other law-abiding drivers do (which includes controlling a lane when it is warranted).  Be reasonably conspicuous.  And dress like normal people; not Tour de France wannabes.
