    In an ongoing effort to elevate bicyclists to demi-god status the California driver handbook

    on page 60 states...

    Bicyclists have the right to operate on the road and may:

    • Lawfully be permitted to ride on certain sections of freeways where there is no alternate route and bicycling is not forbidden by a sign.

    In Sacramento there's already a bill in committee to allow bicyclists to treat stop signs as yield signs. What's next? Perhaps making it legal for bicyclists to drift behind eighteen wheelers?

    California already has a law that motorists must allow three feet separation when passing bikers on the left. I must presume that, when more bikers appear on the railroad tracks, that law will be extended to trains.

    What's interesting is that bicyclists are heralded as being ecologically superior to motorists. AFAIK, four people riding in a modern sedan consume less energy to travel a mile than four people riding bicycles. It's admittedly a multi-faceted argument, but the inherent eco-superiority of the bicyclist is probably misplaced.

    OVer in France there's a "Velo Rail" where you can ride pedal-powered carts up and down the track.
