This is the time of year that really makes me angry at the streetcar tracks. A whopping seventy percent of Portland cyclists crash on the tracks at some point and right now, when people are getting on bikes for the first time in a long time, is when arm casts and wrist-braces start popping up more frequently.
There's a couple partial fixes to this deepening frenemy stalemate (like putting streetcar tracks on the left side of streets and marking ways to cross the tracks safely) but a couple German designers modified a bike to ride IN the tracks.
Portland Streetcar Training WheelsTM, anyone?
