KANSAS CITY BIKE LANES ON ARMOUR BLVD ENDURE REBUKE AMID SNOW!!!



Let's make it plain . . .

MIDTOWN KANSAS CITY THINKS THE BIKE LANES ON ARMOR ROAD ARE STUPID & DANGEROUS DURING WINTER!!!

The idiocy of the "road diet" gives driver less room, puts pedestrians in the middle of crowded streets and offers nothing but a path of snow and ice for imaginary bicyclists who simply arne't there . . . It's urban planning at its worst and looks like the goofy design of a suburbanite urban planner passing off bad ideas on the urban core.

Whoever came up with this plan should be ashamed and banned from offering any other suggestions for local streets.

You decide . . .

Don't worry, it will make more sense when streetcar goes down main.

That Armour Blvd "so called protected bike lane" is a JOKE! I've only seen two bikes on there in the last 6 months. It causes blindness when pulling out of any side streets in Central Hyde Park and is dangerous as hell. Whoever thought of this crap is a moron.

Just wait until they build that 4 corners BS. That is going to be a disaster. Sly is letting MAC build this project without having a parking area big enough to handle things. That's going to be an even bigger problem. Central Hyde Parker's are going to see their property values tank when these building tower over their houses and block their driveways. Not to mention the crime and loitering that has always been there and will never go away.

There is too much snow for the faggots to ride their bikes anyway.

That's Eric Bunch's of BikeWalk KC's (and City Council Candidate)hood. This could have been done somewhere else where it is seriously needed but we all know how politics works here. He lives one block south on 36th street.

So basically this city council candidate Bunch convinced City Council to give him half a million of our money to suit his own personal agenda at the at the expense and exclusion of everyone else so he can calm and bike in his own hood and of course they gave him everything he asked for.

If the city was not such a failure and get the lanes cleaned bicyclists could use them. Hopefully the lanes would hold up to the studded tires bicyclists have to use in the winter. The city fails taxpaying citizens all year but definitely takes care of developers.

This was discussed and predicted on Tony's in July.

Eric Bunch lives in some sort of Dream World where bicyclists have relevance and he is a normal person.

The only questions left are how the Bike Nazis gained so much influence with City Government and who at City Hall allowed this crap to go through. Is Bunch related to or in a relationship with Schulte?

KCMO trying to be Portland with feel good projects paid for by taxpayers that will never use them.



BTW the Jussie Smollett hoax is trending on TMZ and Twitter. Just shows you how backwards these liberals are. Hoax after hoax with no follow up on the truth. Just like those catholic school boys who were smeared in the edited video in DC.

9:31 is right. Sorry younger and dumber have mommy fix your breakfast

I agree with Telester Powell about the huge waste of dollars on so few people. I love to ride when I can, I just stay off the busy streets where traffic is very light. I still say bike owners who want to ride the streets should be required to have a tag displayed, lights on same as motorcycles and have insurance coverage if they want to play on the main roads with everyone else. Then the money collected for the tags can pay for their so called lanes which there will never be enough collected to do a block a year with.

9:31 is wrong and likely an Alzheimer’s patient. Sorry older deader, have your nurse change your diaper.

Bicyclist should adopt to their surroundings not the other way around in a city where so few ride in so few months of the year. The LGBT, race card players and other squeaky wheel groups would do themselves a favor by studying the success the .5% bicyclist have had getting their way.

Suggestion for Eric Bunch and his many, many members of "Bike/Walk KC"...
Get out your shovels, lads and lassies, and start clearing!
Don't just sit around waiting for yet another thing to be done for you and paid for by the KC taxpayers.

But no spandex this time, please! Far too frosty!
Actually, no spandex any time, especially you ladies (shudder)!

Sigh. Radish will weigh in once again into the bike lane wars.

(1) Why the need to use words like “faggots” “bike nazis” etc to describe cyclists? A weird projection. What do you got against those of us who get around town on a bike? Some of us have license issues. Anyways, what would it help your miserable life if instead of a bike that person was yet another car on the road, yet another parking space taken, etc? You’d probably just rage out for a different reason.

(2) bike riders are not the same as bike activists!

(3) armour bike lanes are so stupid. Ruined one of the best east/West rips through midtown. Road diets, complete streets, placemaking, etc. all these stupid expensive dangerous streetscape fads. I hate how they vex motorists even if no bike using it yet give bikes a false sense of security. Waste of money. Money so much better spent on fixing potholes, paving streets, running a streeetsweeper etc. they often project high curbs out into the street so we have to merge into traffic even if there are no cars parked on the right side.

(4) 99% of Kansas City motorists are very courteous and careful once they see a cyclist. The issue is they are often just distracted. The kind of raged out, vengeful resentment filled pricks that clog the comments section of this blog are thankfully not very numerous.

(5) share the road. don’t have a chip on your shoulder when driving or cycling. The golden rule etc.

(6) don’t hate me just because I look good in my jeans and you are a porked out hoople.

Thanks,
Radish

I love the bike lanes and use them daily. It just makes my day when I get flipped off by a gas guzzler. La, di, la, la...Look at me riding my bike in this lane. Never any traffic for me. So peaceful the seven or eight months of the year I can use the lanes. And I love knowing when I am not using the bike lanes, they are still there, not being soiled by dirty car tires and leaky engines, just waiting for my return. I'd like to thank the city of Kansas City for the wonderful privilege of having my own lane for riding my bike. Those private bike lanes are almost as good as having a Jazz District.

False. All correct, though prog-lib shenanigans are hilariously demented and I forgive your mistake.

One word about bike lanes - Stupidity.

Two words about bike lanes - Thank you!

Will somebody with a brain on this City Council undo this stupid project and return Armour Blvd to its original 4 lanes. Geez people, enough is enough! This is the worst stupid mistake you have done!!! Well, besides the airport anyway!

I dump broken glass, nails, and tacks in the bike lanes.

Ugh huh. Sure you do. You haven’t been out of your house in decades.

Lolz, 5:37. Good idea.

I just hope they build those bike lanes all over the city. I'd like to see them on both sides of Oak from downtown to 291 highway. What would be really cool is if they could designate bike lanes on I-35 from Overland Park to Liberty - again on both sides, and I-70 through the city. Metcalf? Yes! Vivion Road? Yes! Highway 169? You betcha. Bike lanes everywhere will just make this city better.

Why don’t you start a petition to remove the bike lanes from Armour Blvd

Anonymous said...

Hell yes! Get rid of the damn bike lanes on Armour!!!

No he just fox news it up and ran a fear campaign of it's such a dangerous street. After 100 yrs. But hes a ks boy so I'm sure the big city is scary to them. But this is just the start of his party changing our city to be more like the bubble worlds they came from

Anonymous said...

Yep and just the beginning of the free money grabs. To change the city into to KS bubble worlds they came from. Broadway and 39st are next. Ran on unsafe street fear campaign. Now hell use it as a win to run for city council.

Not without a fear campaign of a street that's been one of the calmest ,openers peaceful streets in midtown for what a hundred yrs.. but then one of many KS bubble world people come in to our city with NO background or experience in our city and instead of manning up and adapting to there surroundings and teaching there children the ways of the real world. They take the chicken shit lazy way out. And short change there parenting job. Instead they want it all changed to accommodate there life of fear in the real world. To match there small towns or suburban bubble worlds that they came from. Then they get out of there college bubble worlds where they taught the world runs on stats and studies that have one size fits all cities, so they come out of college needing to justify there debt. And to them all they see is all this free money they can get And I don't believe there entire intentions are bad. But to them it's free money they can use to improve things that they want because in there limited experience in the world they still believe things should change for them. Because let's face it ,it has always before with enough whining.. so they see free money and a way to short cut putting effort to go out of there way or adapting to the life they moved into.. And how could they be wrong they've never had to look further then themselves and what they want.. he could have done a standard bike lane and it would have been fine. But no. Hey they saw this in Germany on spring break so I'll bring it here and use it to grow a political thing.. and tell people of a place I have no experience how they should live.. but he tried he was wrong so be different man up and admit oops it's just paint let's try something else! And this time actually consider the people of the place your a visitor to and take into account that somethings work just fine the way they are. And there were people before there before your "genius" and they started there lives there to and like it and got along great without your all knowing change for the sake of change and self life advancements.. in other words dont come into someone elses house and change the furniture around because you're to lazy to walk around the coffee table!
