Many serious cyclists use the shoulders of busy highways like 360, 2222, 2244 etc. Many have been killed or in serious accidents. Shoulders are unsafe for cyclists and often covered in glass and other debris. They should have dedicated bike paths at the top sides of the right of way next to the property line far from the road. They should have bike bridges or tunnels to avoid car traffic. That wold be safer for everyone, and would encourage more bike use. These highways also need wildlife bridges to help keep animals off the roads. Deer get hit all the time on 360. It's happened to me. Let's protect both drivers and animals with wildlife bridges.

For serious cycling for those that need it but struggles to move right. Neither a bike or tricycle will do. We need a new option like a HRC. A clean designed, 4 wheeled cycle that could have the style of a GT40. But run on two electric motors or by the cyclist physical activity. That is my experience having Cerebral Attaxia, and having very poor balance in somethings but from a seated position pedaling can be a breeze if you incorporate 12 gears like my HRC. Wouldn't you agree using a 12 speed bike vs a normal single gear is far easier?
