I've lived in Manhattan for 38 years and have always rode a bike here as well as cars trucks motorcycles scooters and sneakers. The bike is the perfect vechicle, no question. However, since the bike lanes went in on First Ave. two things took place. I thought, wow, finally a positive step, I will be a bit safer heading up the avenue. Sadly, because the new brand of cyclist refuses to travel in the proper direction, I actually feel LESS SAFE trying to negotiate this crowd of super idiots routinely traveling in the opposite direction in a two foot wide lane. I love the bike lanes but this is just stupid! Please get the word out! These folks never went against traffic before the lanes were there.
