Some years ago some cyclists in Australia came up with the idea of the Bike Bus. A group of commuting cyclists rides the same route every weekday with the same schedule. Individual cyclists can join in and drop off wherever they like. A decade ago it was probably a bit of a challenge to plan and promote such a project, but with web mapping and social networks it could be quite easy these days.
And the Aussies have this video on YouTube.
With enough riders a two-abreast paceline becomes feasible (though probably not as tight as for weekend club rides). This could really help novice cyclists along corridors with roads with narrow lanes.
The group can be self-advertising by having the ride leader (who rides in the back) wear a t-shirt explaining the purpose of the group. Motorists tend to be much more understanding when they realize the cyclist is riding for a “practical” purpose like commuting.
So where should Orlando’s first Bike Bus route go?
