The Go Bike Is Against Bike Lanes?

Is coming to think some readers, as evident in your comment, Henry Barcelos reproduced below ipsis litteris:

“I think it’s funny you don’t have a campaign pro-ciclovias-don’t see anything-however, the images of the blog, some pictures are only possible in cities with bike lanes – take babies in bikes? Only in cities with bike lanes – what is the problem? Why not stop to see that only campaigning for education is not enough? Think will educate the brazilian population? Let’s say it’s even possible-but tell me, crashes on freeways exist more in shared lanes or segregated? I guess I don’t need to say anything right? There’s something wrong with the attitude of you, and the people q clamor pos bike lanes are already realizing this.”

Reader opinion clearly is based on reading a single text, or a few that refer only to the law of 1, 5 m.

Cycle tracks as single solution

The point is that bike lanes by itself will not solve magically the problem of mobility, unless part of a cycle plan complete and integrated, that allows the offset from the cyclist safely throughout the city.

And then we enter a crucial point and so often cited by cicloativistas. It’s physically impossible to have bike lanes in all 17000 km of roads in the city of Sao Paulo, or in all the alleys of whatever city, here or in Europe. There will never be a bike path leading you to the door of the House to the door from work. And, when you leave the bike path, need to be respected and recognised as a vehicle, with the right to use the roads, not as an intruder out of the playpen and deserves to be banished to learn to behave.

Bike lanes are important Yes, expressways, as well remember the reader. But each route, according to their conditions and use, demands a kind of infrastructure. In addition, to implement a bike path is necessary to study, design, approval, bidding, works, readjusting the … Road sometimes expropriation. That is, each bike path takes enough to leave. See the example of the bike lane of Avenida Faria Lima, in Sao Paulo, in the promise for sixteen years until it was finally built.

Can’t wait for the city is full of bicycle paths to only then we put our bikes on the streets – and yet just where the bike lanes exist. Cyclists cycling in cities already, today, now. And

Need to be protected.

If we allow propagate the culture of that place of bike is just the bike path, we will be making the cyclist is at risk every time you need to get out of it. This is what already happens in some Brazilian cities, which backed the single modal segregation.

The base needs to be built on respect. And if this respect provided for by law, is not guaranteed, monitored and punished, whenever a cyclist is circulating in place where there is no bike lane, is still seen as an offender who deserves to be punished. And we can’t have that.
