The state of bike paths right now

Mathias Marchal reports on the state of bike paths in various places under current winter conditions.

Marchal also reports on a paper written by Joëlle Gélinas analyzing the language used in reporting cyclist deaths in traffic. The phrasing, like the immortal “hit by a car”, tends to depersonalize and exculpate the driver by ascribing agency to the vehicle and, at the same time, blame the cyclist for his or her decisions. Great analysis.
