Radio Interview with Mike Lasche, founder of FBA

Between The Lines - Sarasota June 16, 2010

Gary Olson of Sarasota's "Between the Lines" public radio program, interviewed one of BikeWalkLee's partners,Mike Lesche, a founder of the Florida Bicycle Association and a leader of Bicycle/Pedestrian Advocates. It covered a wide range of biking/walking topics including sidewalk riding, bike lanes, the recent drive to get the Governor to veto HB 971 (mandatory lane law), bicycle parking in downtown Sarasota, why Florida’s roads are historically bad for cyclists, and where to ride in Sarasota. It's a very informative interview and worth listening to. Click here to listen.

  1. Good interview.
    I have an answer to the question Why does the DOT put in bike lanes then fail to mark them as bike lanes? Answer: so they are not forced to keep them clean as required by state law. DOT calls these undesignated bike lanes.
    In light of HB971 I prefer that they don't mark the bike lanes. This leaves the option of where to ride up to the cyclist. If it is undesigneated then it is only a paved shoulder and the new law does not apply.
