When a bicyclist killed a woman on a bike trail earlier this year, I don't recall seeing righteous indignation from GGW or from the bike community blaming the trail design. As matter of fact, the bike community by and large blamed the victim and I saw nothing from GGW in opposition to their position.

Funny how we misremember things when we want to. It might bolster your argument if you could link to or quote a single instance of blaming the victim, much less "the bike community by and large" doing so.

Also, if you haven't heard "the bike community" decrying shitty trail design for years now, it's because you've been engaging in selective listening.
