This is America. We're raised from birth to believe that nobody can tell us what to do, that if you want to do it, go for it. Clearly the people pushing that agenda didn't intend for you to ride your fat bike in the middle of a narrow lane during rush hour, but don't tell the American that. Cause then you're a racist. I still want to know what city planner decided to make the narrowest residential streets I've seen that aren't in a town whose space is limited by history or geography. Kingwood was a forest prior to making these streets. No limitations on space or topography, why couldn't they have made streets wide enough for cars to park on both sides and still have proper 2-way traffic pass. oh, and ****** SIDEWALKS

@Reivax:  I agree but the answer is narrow streets mean more houses can be crammed in to make more money.

@Retired_Engineer: Depressing isn't it? Go on Googlemaps and put it on the satellite view. Then zoom around Kingwood and compare the newest neighborhoods with the older ones. Then hum the song "Little Boxes" by Malvina Reynolds while doing it.

This is the only place I've ever lived that didn't think sidewalks were necessary. I call that JPS:just plain stupid.
 
That aside, she has every right to do what she did. It's just probably not the most wise decision, especially at that time and with a kid in tow.
 
She has the right of way tho.

Since when is it a sin to not wear a helmet on a bicycle? I would say she will probably live longer than most people will because atleast she is getting some exercise. You would be better of shunning people who are inline at McDonald's or Burger king because they are slowly killing themselves too. This is not the montrose area where all the hipsters and homosexuals live. This is the suburbs where people come to raise families so if you you see someone on a bike you better slow down.

I don't see the problem, It looked like there was plenty of room on the street to me, and you obviously saw her well enough to take a picture.

but they do have greenbelts that traverse the entire area so the thought was probably that the bikers could take the greenbelts, rather than Tree Lane which was designed as a significant through-street. 

The Greenbelt is no always to best way or easily accessible to where one is coming from or going to.The rules of the road state a bicyclist can ride with traffic and cars MUST stay 3 feet away from them.Kudos to this lady for biking her kids to school...  Vehicles need to slow down and show some respect for other modes of transportation on the streets.  Everyone is in such a D#$M hurry...

Be aware that walking in the early morning sun, can make you invisible to a driver.

@Fallon:
 
 
 Excellent point!!  I encounter this problem too.  Always have to drive very slow and careful in the morning.

If automobiles are required to have license plates, then so should all bicycles or tricycles. With it applied to the **** of the rider; applied with 16d nails. Ring shank.

we went on a family walk down our local greenbelt and we got about 100 yards before we turned around.

@Reivax:
 
 
  Maybe if you are on a bike on Greenbelt you could out run them??

  Does anyone know IF/WHERE you can get a map of the greenbelts?  And where they go in relation to the streets?  I used to rollerblade down them.. and would come out in the oddest places and temporarily get lost.  Maps would be very helpful..
