Vehicular Cycling

The show is okay. They advocate vehicular cycling. After more than 40 years of enacting the vehicular cycling idea, how well is it working to grow bicycle use as transportation? In the U.S., not at all. It's like saying that black diamond skiing is safe. It is if you are good enough and comfortable enough to ski black diamond runs, but I wouldn't send my family down those runs. Not until recently, when cities began changing the design of their streets, have we seen growth in bicycle use. Average people will use bicycles when they feel safe.

Helmet talk gets old. When we mandate helmets, we send the message that bicycling is dangerous further keeping people off bikes, yet we don't think twice about driving. And if we pass laws mandating helmets we kill bike share systems because no one walking past a bike share hub has a helmet on them.

Changing street design and getting away from vehicular cycling will add more bicycle riders making bicycle riding safer, which will reduce or even remove the need for helmets. Stop advocating vehicular cycling.

Lastly, indoor trainer talk gets old, too. How wonderful it must be to use a bicycle to go nowhere.

No on the Politics

I get it with the President Grump remark. You don’t like him. I get your co-host with the veiled I LOVE PEACHES is wishing for impeachment. I really do not care what your personal view is. However if you want to turn this into a political forum, I would be happy to express my views each and every comment. Believe me, my views are opposite of yours.
I like bike forums because in general they stick to one subject, bicycles. How about you don’t start calling the President your favorite derogatory name or your Co-host urging impeachment? Give it a try. All I want to hear is the title of the pod..bicycle talk. I can go elsewhere for my politics. Update, the latest pod I received again is filled with your hate for the President. This is good bye.

Bicycle Talk???

New subscriber here, half of the first podcast I listened to was anti-gun rhetoric,and not even good rhetoric. Talk about naivete. I'm paraprhasing here, "if someone wanted to kill someone it's best they have a baseball bat or knife. That way when they look you in the eyes before they kill you, they'll stop". Like a crazy person has a conscience. LOL It's absolutely awful.

Like others have said, if this is politics then add that to the tagline so people know it's not just "Fitness and Nutrition".

The actual biking talk is not bad, but the politics would be be best left to those that know things. Please.
