How traffic should be...

I was riding down Cascade, when I reached the stoplight at Hollenbeck. I waited there, and the sensor picked up my bike and gave me a green signal. I looked at the other street and the only vehicle that was stopped on Hollenbeck was another cyclist...

Last night, I was riding north down Sunnyvale Avenue. About half of the vehicles I saw were other bicyclists - all equiped with lights in front and back. (One behind me was exceptionally bright.)

(Alas, later on the trip back, most of the other cyclists were the 'hidden in the dark' types without lights.)

Bike traffic is peaceful, and pleasant. If only the focus were made on these wonderful vehicles.
