As driving gets more expensive riding a bike is becoming more common. And college bike groups are becoming very popular as well.

The more bikes on the road the more people are driving that also ride bikes. Also the more people that are familiar with how to deal with them and things get easier.

Biking in California is actually twice as safe as walking.

As time goes on this will all get better so stop complaining and get with the program.

Bicycles and motor vehicles do not mix well on roads and streets. The ideal solution is to have separate trails for bikes, but single track hiking trails should never be used by bikes. I doubt that biking is safer than walking in California or anywhere else. Moreover as motor traffic gets worse, biking also gets worse. Being a Pollyanna about an issue like this will only get you killed.
