London cycletracks

CNN: Amazing cycle super highways making bikes the transport of the future, which is mostly about separated bicycle infrastructure in Londond:

"Bikes already make up 24 per cent of all rush-hour traffic in central London - hundreds of thousands of journeys every day that would otherwise be made by car or public transport," said London mayor Boris Johnson.

But then there are the fuckwits who don't understand that they're not stuck in traffic, they are traffic:

Opponents -- including the Licensed Taxi Drivers Association - say segregated bike paths will take too much space from motor traffic and will bring gridlock.

Been in Santo Domingo all week.. locked in gridlock, and amazed that I don't see more bicycles.
