  1. Regarding the article against separated bicycle infrastructure, why is it always a choice of protected cycle tracks versus “taking the lane”? How about a third alternative-totally grade-separated bike lanes? If VCs don’t like protected cycle tracks (and I’m not particularly fond of them myself because they do nothing at junctions), then why not advocate for something which is safer AND faster than the alternatives? Seriously, what could be better than riding on a path where you never need to stop, and where you’ll never see a motor vehicle? And if the VCs are against even this, then I just give up.
