First it was a former Iowa senator who shall not be named. Then it was the counties and thier insurance company, then a safety coalition. Now it is Iowa-Nebraska Equipment Dealers, or INED. I have to wonder who is next at trying to resrict or ban cyclists in Iowa from the roadways? Here is the latest: I am not sure if the author will rogers is hiding his and the INED's position on wanting to restrict cyclists rights to the roadways under hte guise of stating more education needs to be done, etc. or not. He used the word possible when refering to how we should ride to the right. Iowa law states the word practicable. If it were changed to possible there would be a restriction on cyclists and where we can position ourselves on the roadways. I can't even begin to state what I think about his crude comment about just because we have the right we will not get squashed by a 10,000 pound truck. That is far out there as far as I am concerned. He thinks we have no clue about the risks of riding bike. He assumes too much. I wonder if he knows what the word assume means? If the posted limit is greater than 40 mph, consider another route? Give me a freaking break! This would keep Iowa cyclists in the towns and cities only and ban us from riding on any county or state hwy. So much for events like RAGBRAI and other bike rides. I always ride defensivley but never assume anything. Read what I said above about the word assume. What do you think? Do you think rogers has a good idea at wanting cyclists to use a alternate route if the speed is 40 mph or higher? what about riding as far right as possible instead of practicable?
