Ferdie to Bob

    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    I ride a bike and very much respect the 2 to 4 ton vehicles, when I am on a road, which is very very seldom. Many cyclist don't do a good job of obeying the traffic laws and seem to think the road is theirs and vehicles beware. That being said look for Wash DC to take action, since the cyclist are well organized and influential lobby. As they say, the squeaky wheel gets the grease.


    I'm curious if this is happening in St. Louis. For the last year (or so) San Diego has become very aggressive in designating bike lanes. Many have been painted green (the entire lane), particularly near and thru intersections that are the most dangerous for bikers. Streets are being re-striped to accommodate larger bike lanes, and if bike lanes are not feasible, one traffic lane will be painted with a large bicycle "logo" on the pavement to designate bikes have full use of that lane if needed. One narrow street near work has both lanes designated for bikes and signs posted "Bicycles have full use of the street".

    There are more and more bike lanes in the St. Louis area, but so often they end very suddenly so that the biker has to swing out into the traffic lane. Plus, too many roads are too narrow to accommodate 2-4 lanes of cars and bike lanes.
