tim moore--did you read my comments? Cyclists are a danger to pedestrians! In 2012 there were 29 accidents in SF involving bikers, resulting in 2 deliberate deaths by atrrogant lawless bikers, who paid no penalty and have no insurance. This past Saturday I saw biker cross 4 lanes of traffic against light on Detroit ave in lakewood, so bikes do not make streets safer (and don't even talk about driving on sidewalk)
billbg--for someone who allegedly has high IQ (proof?), you have shown no intellectual depth to challenge letter riders with logic or facts, just ad hominem attacks (if you've read anything besides the biker Little Red Book [mao reference here] that's called informal fallacy. Don't you have anything better to offer than insults? Notice you have not addressed the dangers of bike riders in SF, which you want Cleveland to emulate (sorry to use big words here :-}).
Before you droll over Sf as biker city (I spent 11yrs there), do you REALLY want renegade 2-wheeled torpedoes injuring and killing (that's right) innocent pedestrians because they're traffic but don't have to obey laws cause they're "special/holierthanthou"; in 2012 bikers injured 29 people, killing 2, and got away with it, just paying restitution of $15000 in one case, that's not counting property damage. And since they don'tcarry insurance--unlike car drivers-- you'll out of luck if you get hit. and blocking traffic--which by the way includes eco-saving buses--making tired taxpayers late, just to ask for special privileges (don't pay for road upkeep, no license fees, et al), does not endear me to your cause.
it would be mark of resposible reporting to list address of place you review
