And how many of the above mentioned groups are sucking the grant money tit of local/state/federal government! This frivolous bull#hit WILL stop, sooner or later...much sooner as you will soon see! We should have a "Viva la China" loan day.

Maybe with gas prices as high as they are and the amount of obesity in the area more people should consider biking. I for one support it.

I guess this is a good idea in the whole scheme of things.Don't we have more pressing issues? The state, city and school boards are crying cutbacks, no money. Yet we are paying for people to erect barrels and put up signs.Just seems to me that these dollars could be put to work for something we can really see results from. A frivilous waste!

Went to get some gas today before the memorial day gouge. One person paid $63 for 16 gallons of gas. These jerks ride on the sidewalks against treffic and don't have to pay for a license or insurance. Just think if one of these jerks while riding on the sidewalk hit my car. I guess I have to pay for it myself. I checked the city's website out. It says bike week every day. So I guess this means I can ride my bike of the right lane and mak right turns. After all they have a Bike Night in the fall don't they?

Will employers be providing proper facilities for their bike riding employees to change and bathe?

Way to go, now 1 lane of gas guzzling vehicles can travel on King St. Just think of all the gas that will be wasted while sitting a single lane and seeing the wasted space on the bike lane. Did the bikes pay taxes for road use, maintainence or painting all those lines? Keep York going in the right direction, NOT. Maybe the city will offer free bicycle tire flat repairs after a the broken bottles and trash return to the streets. How will this effect the snow emergency route? Will bicycles be required to have tire chains? This should give some of you some fodder to devour.

Thanks, you just confirmed what I always thought about why you Kelley Transit and F & S van drivers speed, tailgate, and breeze through stop signs. Gotta cram on more kids in less time for more $$$

F N idiots.

I live on King Street. It was bad enough before with all the double parking, the street being closed when the schools let out and I can not get to my house. Now we have one lane for cars. And one lane for bikes which I have not yet seen one bike on it yet. Seems like a big waste of my taxes.

Maybe York is planning on creating a "Peddlers Tax Fee" to cover costs, HA HA. Won't be long until we hear of accidents due to cars making a right turn into the path of a straight through bike rider. Hopefully this will not last as long as Mayor Marshall's screw up in downtown to discourage so called "Cruisers" from driving the loop. Oh the good ole days, buck a gallon gas and a place to show off the wheels. Just thinking about the cool muscle rides back in the day makes me want to sport a shag hair cut and mustache.
