Weather? What Weather?

When discussing the possibility of New York City becoming a truly bike-friendly city, one of the most common reasons offered for why This Could Never Happen Here is “The Weather”. Well, check it out, folks:

I maintain that NYC’s biggest obstacle to becoming a Bicycle Utopia has nothing to do with temperature or precipitation. As our Copenhagen biking blogger friend points out:

“Snow isn’t slippery when you’re just riding straight. And on a segregrated bike lane, you don’t have any other traffic to worry about.”

YES. It’s The Bike Lanes. Give Us Real Bike Lanes With NO CARS In Them.
