LOL. 

Take a bike ride. You'll feel better.
Why? You apparently bike all the time and are constantly miserable, insulting, and complaining.

Painting a part of the sidewalk red doesn't mean it is a bike path.  :rolleyes:
1) Some of them in London are that
2) Others in London are just painting part of the street blue.
3) Some of the routes in Korea are segregated lanes and paths and other conversions, same as London

Stop trying to scramble because you made a bigoted assumption that wasn't based on facts, just your own prejudice.

Maybe if YOU weren't so primitive, you'd have looked at the data first before typing. But you didn't. Why? Because YOU are primitive.

One of the best things about Vancouver is cars will slow down rather than HONK THE HECK!

I can cycle from Richmond through Van to Burnaby in 2 hours ON THE ROAD (70% of the time, given my route) without a single honk, angry driver.

In Alberta, Ontario and Manitoba I felt under siege.

Youíve clearly never been to London.  Iíve been a couple of times and the bike paths through a lot of very central areas are completely separated by curbs.  No simple paint jobs and sign posts.  Seeing the loads of cyclists in London also reinforced something I already knew.  Urban cyclists can be pricks the world over.

You've never cycled through Seoul then. There are bike paths along the major rivers but through the city? Nope!

Any bike lanes next to a road in Seoul would just become parking spots due to lack of enforcement.

"Youíve clearly never.." I find this line tends to work for every point Marty tries to make and fails.

Rode 45 miles yesterday, averaging over 19 mph including slowing and stopping for traffic lights and stop signs. There were bike lanes about 80% of the route.

I try and do 30-40km/day.  I don't use my STRAVA anymore. But
when I'm riding I push pretty hard.

I cycled around Jeju Island, flat and fun. Scenic as heck.

Then I made a relatively short trip from my Seogwipo to Jeju City up the side of Halla mountain. Scenic as heck as i walked my bike panting under the foliage.

Two world travellers were interviewed by The Korea Herald about 17 years ago (when i was working in Okpo, on Geoje) and they were asked which part of their Korean tour did they like best and they cited Geoje. Now, the east coast from Okpo southward is stunning, is worth a drive or ten drives, but to cycle up and down and up and down those inclines and declines would be torture. I tried to walk it once and accepted a driver's offer for a ride a third of the way.

I said some, many are not, at least according to the article I read. Some in Korea are dedicated, many are not. Still this idea that somehow Korea is primitive on those things is ridiculous.

No Marti, Korea is just 'dipshit'. That's the word, isn't it.

The "article" you linked, assuming it's the one  you read, is virtually unrelated to the point you're making, suggesting to some who are familiar with your postings, your assertions that, say, Trump had "a few" drone strikes, or the vast majority of  hepatitis victims are elderly, or putting sh*t smeared tp in open bins is fine because of "reasons", that you just made up the point of the "article you read", a thing you do with considerable regularity.

TBH, I haven't followed this thread at all, but somehow I know you are full of it.  Based on long experience.
