TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! KANSAS CITY BIKE PLAN CRITICS CLAIM SNOWBOUND WEEKEND DEBUNKS DESPERATE NEED FOR SCHEME PRICED AT $400-MILLION!!!
This weekend the weather gives cycling advocates a fact check according to many local residents amongst their opposition.
Local cycling advocates promise a stronger push for their primary policy goal:
"The City has drafted a new bike master plan that still awaits approval from the new council. BikeWalkKC is committed to seeing the plan adopted by the full City Council."
Once again the effort is estimated to cost HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF BUCKS and is focused on adding more bike lines.
Accordingly . . .
OPPONENTS OF THE NEW KANSAS CITY BIKE MASTER PLAN REMIND US THAT SNOWBOUND WEEKENDS IN THE WINTER THREATEN TO MAKE MILLIONS WORTH OF CYCLIST ACCOMMODATION USELESS FOR MOST KANSAS CITY RESIDENTS!!!
Here's the word for Sunday . . .
"Look outside. Do you see anybody riding a bicycle??? Yet cycling advocates are telling us that we're all guilty of murder if we don't grant their request for hundreds of millions to build bike lanes that are mostly empty during Winter. Despite all of the climate change arguments, as far as I can tell KC is still a freezing winter weather city and bike lanes aren't a viable form of transportation for our seniors or families for nearly a quarter of the year. It's a shame that cycling advocates take any criticism as a personal affront but a simple weather check today is all that is required to disprove the vast majority of their advocacy."
To be fair, Bike/Walk KC continues their local struggle and not only hopes to replenish the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee but also hopes to complete a "systemic" evaluation of Kansas City streets in order to help improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians.
