Moving Beyond Bikelash: Aaron Naparstek's keynote presentation, San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, Golden Wheel Awards, July 16, 2014.
Bikelash is a normal and natural part of a 21st century American city's evolution. As your city begins to make its streets safer and more comfortable for pedestrians, cyclists and transit riders; as your city begins to move away from the idea that streets are the sole domain of motor vehicles; some people in your city will begin to freak out about the changes that are happening on their streets.
This freaking out process is known as "Bikelash."
