I wonder if they have been threatened with tickets for riding or racing in the bike lane in a group, by NIMBY joggers or people playing with kids on the paths.
Most of these people aren't real racers, they're posers. They ride VERY slowly! I would say that most of them never exceed 10 mph. I have even seen them having their children ride to their
left in a car lane instead of the bike lane.
The joggers have a wide sidewalk next to the bike lane, so there's no need to jog in the road, and children don't play on these streets.
BTW, the posted speed limits on these streets that they're blocking traffic on is 45 mph.
