Cyclists are a menace on city streets. Try using the trails and watch the accidents cease to be a problem. One would have to have a death wish to ride a bicycle on arterial streets. Stupid is as stupid does.

Tulsa is one of worst towns in the nation for bicycling and walking. Absolutely discourages a healthy lifestyle where one has abundant choices to get out with nature in safe ways in one's own neighborhood.

What's with all of these ditches on the side of streets? Why don't they have culverts in them covered and paved as walk ways or for bicycling?

No the menance are the ones behind the wheel, not riding on two. But it is true that anyone getting out on the streets are taking their lives into their own hands.

The next thing this group will want is a new country side for the great white quail or the Mexican Doe Doe Bird. They will also want to Ban Mariajuana in the New York Subways.
