    Strava, a cycling application, released a map that shows where people are recording rides. The W&OD showed heavy usage, but so does Claiborne. We all "notice" a lot of cyclists on the road, but here is a visualization of it. Has there ever been any thought to adding bike lanes to support this heavy usage?

    I'm curious why you think it is dangerous?

    I get buzzed by cars all the time. Also a favorite is for drivers to cut infront of me to get to turn lane instead of waiting. Verbal abuse is more of a buzz kill.

    I though bikers wanted to be treated just like cagers? ;)
