I've posted this idea before, but I think you need to stage some type of legal, nonviolent resistance. Get a large group of cyclists together, and do a road ride in a high traffic area. Everyone needs to be calm, follow all of the rules of the road, ride single file, have bells on their bikes, etc. Ride around the center of town, making lots of left turns or something. The goal is to disrupt traffic and be annoying, but in a totally legal and nonviolent way. You need to all wear shirts that say something like "Wouldn't it be better if we were in the woods?" Do this every Friday afternoon during rush hour. Of course people are going to hate you, but they already hate you for wanting to ride bicycles.
When we riding?
