i don't know how good that bike plan is, but y'all are lucky to have any at all. my choices are to drive directly in the street, and get honked at or almost hit, or drive on the sidewalk, which means i am constantly having to slow down for pedestrians, since i don't want to scare them.
Step 1 in making Seattle the best bicycling city in the nation: sluice all the hills.
@1: I'm glad we have the BMP, but I'm not sure how good it is either. It's a lot of money for road paint. Barely addressed, it seems, is reducing the city's unrestricted on-street parking -- a scourge upon the cyclist!
@2: Hills are fairly easily avoidable in Seattle (unless you live on top of one, which is your choice). Just follow the water. But some of us find hills enjoyable: an instance where hard work is instantly rewarded.
