I agree with this completely. Here most bike lanes have cars park in them and the ones that don't the street sweepers have swept all the glass and debris in the lane so it unusable.

Maybe some one from Europe can chime in but cycling in the US is a fringe sport. The sport of cycling is big business in Europe. Kids grow up riding bikes and there are races just about every day. I think this spills over to more of a cycling society. Here we have Nascar and football. Now that Armstong is no longer riding the Tour de France the popularity and exposure will decrease even more
