“An American paleoconservative wants to mainstream bicycling as transportation in American society.”

This is all sorts of delightfully weird:

Lind has decried the extensive spending in highways at the extreme expense of any other mode of surface transportation as liberal social engineering at the public expense. He likes rail and bikes because conservatives like old things, and both of those transportation forms predate the car and public highways. In his arguments for public transportation, I detect more than a hint of retro-grouchery, which is something many utilitarian cyclists can identify with.
