Basically yeah. The bike infrastructure in Amsterdam is far worse than most other Dutch cities so you end up in traffic, shared routes with pedestrians, or on cobbles quite a lot. Not really worth cycling anything on anything that isn’t slow and comfy.

That's what they did to at least one or two branch rail lines in Japan that got wiped out by the tsunami. It's got a lot of 'single track' so each bus has instrumentation for the drivers to know where to go and stop, they have to use station sidings to pass each other and so on lol. It's just an asphalt road, I don't remember if it's optically guided or not

why not just a normal road restricted to buses?
brisbane has a busway

Absolutely, which is why I have solids. My bike isn't a car replacement for commuting. It's a death-trap for attempting sick stunts and crippling myself. If drunkenly riding a road bike off a ramp made of burning pallets into a freezing river doesn't sound like fun to you, you're a damn prude

This.

Try carrying a bit of extra weight, ideally as low down as possible in panniers or frame bags as opposed to backpack or rack.

Or instead of adding weight like a weirdo, try riding faster if you want to exert more force.

anyone else live in a place completely devoid of trains that used to have them? it really does suck seeing the infrastructure rot away while money is put into busses that still have to go on the congest highways the cars go on. and also trains are just kino

The town im from was famous for the granite that came out of it; those rail lines out of town died in the 1920's and got turned into bike paths. The towns next to me had old mills associated with their rail lines. They still exist as small rail line companies connecting each other to eventual main cities still as rail and possibly as future commuter lines.

But the whole "lets connect too commuter lines ", is really just talk even after every renewed interest every 10 years.
>>

I live in a town with a big grand central station right downtown that now only gets passenger trains around twice a week. Our old streetcar system was also completely demolished and they refuse to build a light rail netweork. The only sign left that this place used to be a huge train city are the massive freight yards dotting the city.

Is it really expensive or is this another case of "juice"?

City use to have quite a few that would expand to neighboring towns
You can still see where they go and a bit of em still exist for industrial reasons but don't go as far as they use to anymore as the point's past the usability for industry were removed and turned back into farmland or bike paths.

One that's haunted me most of my life went from downtown to the neighboring city then a lake as well a sawmill spur off it,Funny there's still some old footage of it near the lake but nothing near downtown or before it turned north.

City also use to have a trolley system that was removed due to the bus fiasco.
City put it on ballet a few years ago to bring it back from downtown to a district in town,but nothing ever came of it also downtown is kind of dead and the idiots don't know how to fix it properly as nobody goes there anymore really and keep investing in dumb shit nobody wants.
