Yes, it is frustrating when something that's economics vs politics gets snubbed and things that are hateful or really the sort of stuff that creates dangerous polarization flies. As much as I love pedaling for a bunch of reasons where I do a lot of work shows other strong reasons to support it. I'm at an admin/director level but we have hundreds of people in entry level jobs. Dozens who are on the roads because a bike is a machine with amazing capabilities that helps them get to and keep jobs. Some choose the risk of being on the road over the risks associated with waking and bus stops in bad neighborhoods. People should forget about the outliers or bad examples just like I don't equate all cars with the bad examples.
