> I always love the "but we have to maintain momentum" argument. A car also has momentum. In fact, it has quantitatively more momentum.

But it's easier (in the sense of human effort expended) for a car than a bike to regain its lost momentum, right?




But that’s more of a personal problem isn’t it? No one forced that mode of transit, and you don’t hear joggers or skateboarders complain.

One can’t yell, “We are traffic!”, but then cry about how you want to be excempted from traffic laws you don’t like. I hate red light too, but I stop at them.


I always felt worse about stopping and accelerating again in a car because the cost didn't go to my muscles but to the environment in the form of lots of extra pollution.
